After the initial strip/clean, don't bother to practice stripping it until you've put a few hundred rounds through it.

I wanted to "get the hang of it" before I started shooting mine, and it was a royal pain. Every time, I had to use a punch and a soft mallet to get the slide stop pin out, and every time, I needed the mallet to get the pin back in upon reassembly.

But after putting just 300 rounds or so through the gun, stripping and reassembly got MUCH easier, to the point where I no longer need any tools.
