    What the others said. It's a round that's jammed in the chamber. First grab the slide HARD with your left hand, then SLAM the butt of the gun with your right. Don't drop the gun or break your hand. If you can't extract the round that way, then bang the SLIDE on the edge of your wife's mahogany coffee table. And if that fails, then pull open the extractor as you pull back the slide. But if you do it that way, you'll still have a round jammed in the barrel that you need to beat out with a dowel.

    Finally dislodged the round, thanks for the advice everyone.

    Good to have my trusty carry gun back with me.

    Surprisingly normal, the casing was in far better shape than the example round I posted. I suppose the brass could have been corrected while I was forcing it out, but I couldn't really say.

    I'll take the weapon to the range in the next few days and see if I experience any similar issues.

    I took a picture of it, if anyone is interested.

    I've had this happen with reloads. The round is fat somewhere. Out of spec.

    Not correctly resized or sized during manufacture.

    It cannot chamber fully. It sticks out a bit therefore the barrel can't lock in the slide.

    One other cause if the round is correct is debris between the case and the chamber, like a sliver of brass, or dirt.

    The way I fix the issue is to place a screwdriver wrapped with electrical tape in the gap between the barrel and slide at the rear of the ejection port.

    Lever it and it will free up the case, open up the gun.

    I don't like to whack my guns.

    Take the round and others from this batch and see if it will plunk into the chamber of the barrel out of the gun. If the base of the cartridge case sits past the tail of the barrel it is not in spec.

    Be sure the chamber is squeaky clean!

    You can also get a cartridge gage from Midway USA, Brownells, etc to check your batch.

    After watching the video I realized he doesn't recommend it. Thanks for correcting me.
    there is so much wrong with Captain Logo's thought pattern, I can't even begin to address it....

    I'm glad you got the round out OP. As many have stated, I too have seen this happen, generally the case is out of spec, or the bullet is seated improperly in the case.
