I don't have long enough fingers to release the 1911 slide release without changing my firing hand grip. The release paddle on the 1911 is quite small and takes considerable finger force. I prefer to rack the slide with my support hand {unless occupied with something else --- like another 1911} since it will be in my work space after inserting a fresh magazine; without altering my firing hand grip.
That rifle hanging on the wall of the working class flat or labourer's cottage is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."
