    I take back that “not recommended part“, once you have the slide back over the safety pin shown (like you have it in post 12 I believe it was) feel free to grip the grip safety when locking back the slide or chambering a round.
    It should be natural not to compress the grip safety when chambering a round as your hand pushes up on the hammer guard part of the grip safety.
    With out a magazine in the pistol the slide won't lock back without pushing up on the slide lock.
