Its called a slide release because its a slide release. That is what that little button was designed for.

I use the slide release because I want my other hand free for other activities, such as reaching for another mag, holding a flash light or whatever.

I've seen too many people in using the over hand slide pull back that are too slow in releasing the slide and end up riding it forward, retarding the pressure which often causes failure to lock up.

But to confess, I'm a huge fan of one hand shooting in defense situations.

I want my pistol to fit my hand, or that is to say I want to be able to reach all the buttons that need to be reached without screwing up my grip.
