i am guessing your jamming problem will disappear with practice, looks like you may be weak wristing usually shooter induced. is your friend having the same problem with the same ammo, try shooting each others gun and compare your jams to hers. or have an experienced shooter shoot you gun with the same ammo. when you pull the trigger the gun has to be perfectly still no shaking. take your time and don"t jerked the trigger. each shot rapid fire will make most people lose control over the basics and cause the jams. get use to the shells hitting you, you will find them everywhere even in your pockets or as i had one time stuck to my neck! and don't be going around shooting guys in the groin, thats not lady like, hahaha!
