...I grab the forend firmly ...and close it "gently" ...making sure it closes completely.

I do not operate the lever with my thumb ..close the breech - and then release the lever... and I don't "slam" a gun shut ....or whip the barrels up by putting 2 hands on the stock ( like I see a few guys do ) to close the gun .... or release the lever..and grab the gun stock in 2 hands and flop the barrels open either....
BINGO - no slamming of moving the gun to snap it open or closed - THAT will ruin a hinge faster than throwing sand in it. Just close the action gently and all will be well for a long time
