That's when you pull the locked-back slide to chamber a round and your hand stays on the slide as it goes forward. It often reduces the forward force of the slide as compared to releasing it and allowing the full spring tension to work. The result is sometimes a failure to go fully into battery (failure to close completely) which in turn results in a non-functioning gun when the trigger is pulled.
