Oops!!! Need a little help.....

Well, I screwed up.  I was cleaning my Glock 19 and when reassembling put the barrel in upside down.   Of course I cannot get the slide off now.   I didn't force anything so no damage done, but I now find myself in the very unfortunate situation of not knowing what to do next.  Any help from you Glock guys would be GREATLY appreciated.  I'd like to get this done before it is discovered at my house by someone who is going to laugh very hard at me.  Thanks!

I wouldn't consider it a screw-up, but rather learning something.  We have a lot of old salts that have been messing with guns for 30 or more years.  When I first got back into guns, it took a while to figure things like this out.

Assuming that Jenny is a woman, I'm just glad to see another women showing interest.

While showing my friend how to field strip his brand spanking new Blued Sig P220 several years ago I:

1- Removed the magazine

2-Racked slide twice and then locked it open

3- Visually inspected the empty chamber

4- Rotated the "disassembly lever?" with my thumb

5- Hit the slide release lever with my thumb

6- Watched in horror as the entire upper half (of a  blued mint pistol my friend had scoured the internet looking for) sailed off the porch and barely cleared his sidewalk by a few inches. 

Everyone makes mistakes. :)

I work with my hands, can do stuff not looking, can even tell what kind of screw driver is needed just by feel of the head of the screw. Guess I have seen just about all there is now. Bet ya dont do that again.
