Second because your gun is new and tight it needs all the help operating the action it can get. Releasing the slide with the slide stop (it's not a slide release) is not taking full advantage of the recoil spring. When you're ready to release the slide draw the slide back all the way and release it (called slingshoting).
I agree with my Brother Chuck, Uplula is the best thing since sliced bread.
Slingshot the slide is the best way to load the first round.
Joes1911magmania sells very good range magazines for fair prices. I own his full and compact size 9mm mags and have not had any problems with them. He also sells .45acp magazines.
