I've stuck with the overhand slingshot method for a couple of reasons.

The first is that the location, shape, and operation of the slide lock lever is often different on various guns. The slingshot method works the same on everything.

The second is that, with the slingshot method, I am retracting the slide fully to the rear before releasing. I've run across a few pistols that chamber more reliably that way.
