Have you shot an autoloader before? Could be limp wristing it.

No....that's the name of the drill..."the failure drill".

And yes, it is QUITE effective, I'd imagine. Fortunately I've never had to use it for real.

"Limp wristing" could cause that, when you limp wrist, the recoil is absorbed my the wrist/hand/arm and does not allow the the slide to cycle all the way. My P95 has never had any issues, but every gun is different. I would still look to the shooter first and then the gun.

Sure, it's possible. Make sure you have a proper grip. It's also possible that it didn't like the ammo you fed it.

Have a more experienced shooter put some rounds through it if possible. If it happens with them as well, I'd change up the ammo. Which really, is a good idea to see what if anything it does not like.
