If so, mine does the same thing from time to time. I use the same rounds too. Never has had a problem when I use the slide release. Not sure why it does it, but it's never failed to fire, or feed as long as I use the slide release. I tried to simulate the round nose dive several times using the slide release, but it never does. ? Excellent choice for CC, use the +p gold dots and a second mag and you're well protected.
How did ya like the elite trigger? It's one of the best I have ever used. For $400 and change, great buy for a 9mm.
