Could be ammo, mags, your extractor, etc. Check the extractor for free movement & spring tension. Look at the extractor hook closely to be sure it isn't damaged. Clean your mags and check for binding. Use Winchester White Box 124 grain fmj for testing. Clean the bore and chamber and check for pitting. Then check back with the results.

Any advice, gentlemen?
I had a CZ that did that once. I was the third owner and the thing was fairly dirty when I got it. They are pretty ugly to totally disassemble, so I field stripped it and gave it as good a cleaning as I could. Everything looked fine, and the extractor seemed to have good spring tension. I still had trouble extracting and was doing what yours is. I sent the pistol in to CZ, and they totally disassembled it and cleaned it. The gunsmith there told me that there was residue behind the extractor that was preventing it from functioning as designed. I have not had a problem with it again after that. If you know how to disassemble your pistol, a really good cleaning of the extractor and the channel where it sits may be all you need to do.

Will be firing it this weekend. Went ahead and ordered a new spring kit to counter any possible stove pipes.

So you're not going to wait for them to occur before you "fix" them?

Learned my lesson with my PPK (had the same type of issues) so I'll just take preventative measures now.

My ac41 2nd Variation that was bought at a Portland, OR surplus store in 1962 for $35. It is all numbers matching, including magazine. It also came with a 41 marked holster with the name of the previous WWII owner.

Ah, the good old days. Nice pistol. Great price, even back then.

I remember the P38 my dad bought for me in 1966; long ago traded away. It was a CYQ in NRA VGC and cost $55. That was a lot of lunch money back then.

My 'new to me' P-1. Took a little getting used to the trigger pull and sights, but I got dialed into it pretty quickly. A LOT of fun to shoot other than periodic jams of spent casings not ejecting. Was shooting WWB and Blazer 115g and not a single issue with the Blazer, but several with the Winchester.
