    Anyone having problems with their empty cartridges getting caught in the slide? It happens almost every other shot

    Take a close look at the extractor.

    In addition to the extractor, make certain that your thumb is not impeding the slide and that your grip is firm enough to allow a proper recoil impulse and a full travel of the slide.

    ? Are you saying limp wristing can't be a possible cause for stove pipes?

    I had 2 rounds out of 200 that didn't fully eject a couple weeks ago....I was shooting Winchester white box....and I did notice both of those rounds didn't sound like all the others when they jammed....so I'm contributing both malfunctions to bad loads....I know I definately don't have limp wrists.....lol

    I'm not trying to be PITA but the best ammo for your gun is whatever shoots POA and is reliable. Hopefully, it's not the most expensive ammo...:D.

    Check your ejector.

    I shoot Winchester white box out of my Glock with no issues.:rolleyes:

    I'm just messing with you, I'm not like that, the XD is a fine weapon. These guys have given some good advice already, try picking up some other ammo and giving it a try.

    I would guess we are talking about the XD9SC in your profile picture?
    I have the XD40SC.
    As previously stated, Grip. Mine isn't particularly sensitive to limp wristing, but it could be a contributing factor (if your ammo is iffy).
    Extractor. Check to ensure that it's not gunked up to the point where it's movement is impeded. Mine gets pretty grimy sometimes. But then I shoot mostly (my own) cast reloads in mine.
    Ammo. Not sure about what your using now, but Winchester White Box is a solid product. Wal-mart federal is reliable (for me), but groups opened up noticeably. Stay away from the Gun Show Big Bag-O-Reloads stuff. Mine isn't particularly ammo sensitive, but that's not to say yours couldn't be. Sub compact guns can be fussier than their bigger brothers.
    Also, for future reference, if you have issues with the slide not locking back after the last round, make sure your thumb is well clear of the release lever. You would be amazed at how little interference it will tolerate. ;)
