I just bought a new pro series9mm with 5 inch barrel, when I go to load it with slide lock back I insert mag and pull slide and release and even if it goes it catching and then shoots forward and loads, 3 times it stopped. is shooting the best thing for now to see if it loosens up or have I got a problem.

Most feeding issues can be traced to the magazine. Does it happen with all mags or just one? I would check the feed lips to see if there are any burrs or anything obvious. Does it happen only when the mag is full or at random times during a mag dump? Check to make sure the mag isn't rubbing on the bottom of the slide. Oh, a S&W OEM mag or brand x?
Has the gun been lubricated?
I know you said you pull and release. :-) My brother did too and followed the slide forward with his hand despite me telling him to pull and release. If you are, don't ride the slide forward.
If all of the above doesn't help I'd make sure it's lubed and fire it. Or cycle it by hand a few hundred times to see if that helps it.
Good luck with it and please keep us in the loop.
