I have never shot the P11... but the first handgun I ever shot was the Barretta and I also found activating the slide stop next to impossible. After handling it once/twice a week for a long time I eventually built up my dexterity and was able to do it.
My first personal handgun was the XD... and again, at first, I found it difficult (not nearly so much though) to push the slide stop. Now I can do it in my sleep.
Unless you've been practicing with it DAILY for a few weeks, I would say start doing so; I bet you'll find in a few weeks you'll have it down. Also, are you referring to a brand-new gun... is it possible that part of the problem you are experiencing is just related to the newness-factor and just needs time to be 'broken in'???
