    Trying to pull it out yourself could lead to problem and damage to the horn.
    Yes very true, my friend had a yamaha 2320 and the main tuning slide was stuck, he used the shoelace technique then the tuning slide got bent, causing the leadpipe to also bend, I don't know if the horn was flimsy but it was dumb, even though it was a mistake in the process(he tugged too hard), anyone can make that mistake when we get frustrated...

    Run it under some warm water and it should loosen up. You can use the shoelace trick also, but don't yank on it too hard. I had a friend in the Region band that had his main tuning slide stuck the day before the concert. So, we did a shoelace trick, and ended up completely pulling the slide off. Luckily, the local music store was able to put it back together in time, but it was a bit of a disaster.
    Another friend of mine put valve oil into the trumpet also and it always seemed to help a bit. Maybe give that a shot?
