New glock owner question.

I did this a few times. So i tried it without any rounds in the mag and nothing happened. The slide didnot go forward. Is this because the mags are new or is it something else. Thanks.

My kids rule me too. Great choice on the G19. Not sure about the automatic-slide-release upon insertion of a fresh mag. Not supposed to do that.

    Glocks (and many other autos) will chamber a round when the fresh magazine is inserted with some force or speed. Glocks have always done that for me, so much so that I have to pay attention because when it doesn't happen it surprises me and I'm actually slowed down in the reload.

    I noticed that we have carried very similar handguns...insert smiley.
