      Slide will not retract

      I have another thread in this forum discussing a round that I can't remove because the slide won't retract. The gun (LCP Custom) had 5 rounds in the clip and one in the chamber. I removed the clip then attempted to retract the slide to extract the round in the chamber. Slide will move less than a half inch but not enough to eject the round. Anyone else had this problem? If so, what did you do to prevent this from happening in the future?

      Thanks for the advice.

      This was answered, but again, Don't mess around with it. Take it to a gunsmith. It's probably something simple, but potentially dangerous.

      But a gunsmith is the safest option IMHO.

      Perhaps calling Ruger would not be a bad idea as well.
