Barnes TAC XPD 9mm / Shield Issues?

Hello all, new guy here...

I'm just curious if anyone else here has had any issues with their 9mm Shield while using Barnes TAC XPD 115 Grain rounds?

I just bought a brand new Shield and took it to the range yesterday to shoot it straight out of the box and using said rounds, I had a FTF with every 2nd round, it was jamming on me straight out of the box.

I then used Federal HST 9mm 124 Gr with no issues whatsoever.

At first I thought that maybe I should have lubed the gun since it seemed pretty dry and maybe that was the issue but then again, I had no issues with the Federal HST's...... Has anyone else had a similar issue with the TAC XPD's?

Welcome to our little corner of the net!

One thing is that new pistols should be cleaned and lubed before firing, it tells you in the instructions to do that. It is pretty common for pistols to have very definite preferences for ammo, although as the gun is broken in that may change.

I gotta go with G56, you should have cleaned and lubed the gun before firing it for the first time.
I`ve never had an issue shooting any of the ammo you speak of. Clean an lube, shoot it some more.
Spray a film of dri-lube in your mags... it DOES help, believe it or not.
Most of all, your gun is new, some are a tad tighter than others, shoot the hell out of it, she`ll come around.
