I manage to ride the slide release on a P30S (shorter slide lever). From what I've read, this is slide lever everyone recommends to avoid issues with the slide locking back. I know it's me and not the gun, but I've never had this issue with any other handgun.
I'm considering a switch to the VP9, but not having access to one, I'm unsure if I'd have any more luck not riding the lever versus the P30S.
May have to go back to my G19. Yikes!
