Two things to consider, besides ammo:

1. Magazine issue?
2. Limp-wristing?

Not saying it's one or the other, or both -- just something to consider.

I wouldn't know what to look for.I brought it home and cleaned it.It looks and operates normally.

I'm a fairly new shooter so this might be our issue...her especially.

What is the deal with limp-wristing?

Short story, if the frame/grip isn't held firmly the kinetic energy of the recoiling slide will be wasted and various malfunctions can occur.

It is a term worth doing some searching to get the idea of, some guns are more prone to it than others (even within a model or a production run ... very gun-specific) and there are some things you can do to help the efficency of the slide's motion like greasing the rails.
I think it is a symptom of a flinch as much as a non-firm grip, personally. But getting someone to admit to a flinch is pretty hard ...
... You can do an objective test for a flinch, though. Get some of those snap-caps you already bought, load them into the magazine with live ammo at random, then hand it off to your shooting buddy. Watch for a hammer fall on a snap-cap accompanied by a flinch. Try not to laugh, the next magazine is your turn to be tested.

I eliminated flinching with that drill (search "ball and dummy drill for more info" and dry-fire, plus a LOT of rimfire shooting.

Have a more seasoned shooter give it a try to make sure it isn't you two if those ideas don't help.

well, it got me once but got her 5 times.That's why I asked.She seemed to have the issue...a few times it was the 1st round after loading.I chalked that up to not letting the slide slam home.I think she was holding it back a little.

1st time out for it so who knows.My XD40sc was 100% but she only pulled that trigger once.She put it right down.
