Recoil Therapy

Brief range trip this morning. Lots of .22, a bit of .38, and a few magazines of 10mm. The Kimber looks to be a phenomenally accurate gun but had a few weird lock-ups. Specifically, the slide latch would bump its way up during recoil and lock the slide back with several rounds left in the mag. This happened several times with no apparent pattern, and I did check my thumb positions. Any ideas?

You may be inadvertently bumping the slide stop with your right thumb... And those are prone to that, as they are not real tight. The other problem MAY be a worn pin.

Same mag?
