    Finally got to go shoot my Taurus PT111..... had a problem though.... just about every other round or every few rounds it wouldn't eject the casing properly.. it would get lodged between the slide. anyone have any clue as to what could be causing this?! maybe just the ammo? I used winchester 9mm lugers 115gr.

    Well..... I'm sure you are going to get the "It's a Taurus" responses.... but I would adjust your grip, make sure you aren't following the round (trying to absorb the recoil) and switch ammo just in case (doubt it's the ammo).

    Limp-wristing could cause some stovepipes.

    Report back when you try new things. I tried a buddies PT145 pro and it was fine, my other friend said it was doing the same thing you stated.

    Sounds like limp wristing. Try some different ammo and hold the gun like a man.
    Oh... doesn't help that its a Taurus, either. :hsugh:

    stove pipes are almost always caused by limp-wristing your grip.

    Same thing happened to me when I first shot a 1911 when I was younger. I thought it was a problem with the gun but now I have a feeling I was limp wristing it.

    Could be either one. That's why I said try new ammo AND starting gripping the gun like a man. :bigthumb:

    I don't see the big fuss over wwb. I tried it and did not care for it at all. Remington has always treated me well.

    The issue I had with wwb is that it seemed to be a hotter round. This is by no means scientific, but the wwb seemed to kick harder than the remington. Perhaps your grip didn't like that?

    WWB is just cheaper. You can get more for less. I don't feel its "superior" in any way. Just... cheaper.

    With that said... I've never had one problem with it, in all 3 calibers I've shot frequently.

    i WAS gripping it like a man. i only brought it up because everyone on ot always jumps on the limpwrist bandwagon. :greddy::fawk: wwb might work fine in 99% of the guns of WMD, however in my case my firearm did not like it. trust me i wish it did ($4.00 cheaper)

    Dunno. Rem and WWB are same price where I shop. Federal is cheapest.
