    Sneekin' a peek at the hopefully chambered brass is a 'press check'. Just jargon.

    Well, you would hold the grip so your finger is OFF the trigger. Point the weapon in a safe direction, and press with your index finger on the tip of the slide just above the barrel. The intention to the press the weapon towards a battery state so you can ensure that it is in fact loaded.

    A more safe option is to hold the weapon as explained above, but squeeze the rear grip of the slide and pull back.

    Most glocks DONT have a indicator such as a red dot. The extractor claw will kick out to the right a small amout and the trigger will be forward, but that only indicates that the weapon is charged, not loaded.

    A 'press check' is done with the piece "out of battery," IOW 'not ready to fire.'
