Auto pistols are designed for the most part to feed with the slide stripping a round from the magazine fairly quickly. If you slow it down, you may end up with the cartridge case in front of the extractor hook and not under where it should be. The extractor sitting behind the case rim could be why it won't go into battery without a sharp rap on the back of the slide as you "jump" the extractor hook over the rim. Not all that good for the extractor hook. This is also why you don't close the slide on a round that is already chambered. Once the extractor is damaged, it's replacement time, though some gun designs are less sensitive to damage on the hook than others. 1911's are notoriously sensitive in this area with even a minor burr or ding/bend/lack of tension/over tension causing FTE's and erratic ejection.

My favorite is when the cases hit the shooter square in the face. Kinda distracting to say the least.
