If you're going to ride the slide and risk a malfunction because you're worried about bullet setback, you need to get better ammo, so you don't worry so much.
I get that you signed it with a grin, but you don't really risk a malfunction if you ride the slide and make a point of riding it all the way in. I make my own practice ammo, and use well-recognized defensive ammo, and I have never experienced significant bullet setback, but we have all seen pictures of rounds that set back significantly. Treating one's defensive ammo a bit gently seems prudent to me.
