Red Dot - slide mount VS. frame mount

A while back, I bought one of the Mako frame mounts and a cheap rod dot sight just to try out. Aside from the cheap, junk sight falling apart within an hour, I absolutely loved shooting with it. My only complaint is that I couldn't holster my gun with the mako mount attached. That's too inconviencing and pretty much a deal breaker for me.

So that got me looking at the slide mounted set-ups. My only concerns is losing sight of the dot between shots. I've never shot with one rail mounted, so maybe my concern isn't really anything I should worry about afterall. But with the mako mount, the mount and sight stay relativily still while the slide cycles. But with a slide mounted sight, it will be constantly moving with the slide. Does this create issues with losing sight of the red dot?

I'd love to hear from anyone who has shot with a slide mounted red dot.

This is what I had in mind:
