Question
if i take a clip out my gun and pull the slide and there is a bullet still in the gun, will it shoot if i put the slide back

Answer
Yes, but it depends on what the problem is. If your firing pin or firing pin spring is light it could just not be hitting the primer hard enough to fire the gun.  If the bullet is not being pulled back and ejected then it sounds like an ejector issue, either broken ejector or weak or broken ejector spring.

Letting the slide forward on a round can damage the ejector if done repeatedly since the gun is designed to slide a round under the ejector from the magazine.

I would remove the bullet from barrel, reload in the magazine and then load the bullet like it is intended to be loaded from the magazine and slide action.
