Failure to fire in SP2022

I had my SP2022, which had been cleaned and lightly lubed, fail to fire on Monday. It happened more to my sister-in-law than it did to me ... but it did happen at least a few rounds to me.

And:

1) I strongly doubt I was limp-wristing the firearm. This gun has never bobbled one on round on me before and it's had at least 400 WWB through it. We also were using WWB on Sunday. No other semi FTF'd for me on Sunday, and between my and my brother's guns, we went through quite a few rounds. Neither of us had any other failures of any kind.

2) I was watching her shoot. The gun was fully in battery. It also also was fully in battery (not even slightly out) when I would tap her and say "May I" as I received the "hot" gun while keeping it downrange. In each case, that shell simply wasn't firing. Tap, rack and bang, and back to normal. Granted, this could be an ammunition issue, but WWB previously has been a non-issue for me and my SP2022.

Re Glocks (which got mixed into a similar thread by a different poster), they're just not a part of my life. Don't own any. Nothing at all against them and know they are highly regarded pistol. I simply don't care for the feel (ergonomics) in my hand. So, for me at least, Glocks have nothing to do with the issue at hand.

I really, really like my SP2022, and I hope this turns out to be something minor, such as a feed-ramp polish.

I'll run it out again tomorrow and see if it returns to its previous, perfect function before I make any decisions.

WWB is sometimes spotty ammo. I have noticed that my SP shoots softer with it than PMC, Federal, or American Eagle.

Try another brand of ammo and see if it fixes it.

Thanks guys. Hitting the range before work today. Will take a few kinds of 9mm ball with me.
Oddly enough, the pistol sucked up and spit out the Hornady Critical Defense round with no problems, and that's a little bit of an odd round...although I keep hearing good things about it.
Don't feel like expending any HD ammo today; wallet cramp.

Maybe try to fire the FTF round from another gun?
Could be a bad primer. I am by no means an expert, but sounds like it is an ammo problem.
WWB has to cut corners somewhere to be able to sell at the current price, and 1 bad primer in 400+ rounds sounds acceptable for discount ammo. But then, what do I know?

Loaded mags today with (1) WWB, (2) Blazer Brass, (3) PMC Bronze. All 115 gr. jacketed round nose.
Zero troubles.
I think:
(1) My sister in law was perhaps limp-wristing the gun a bit.
(2) My misfire my have been as simple as a bad primer.
(3) I think actually had the thing overlubed. When I pulled it apart today for a quick cleaning before heading out, I thought "Where in the F did all that grease come from?"
I used only pinpoint drops of Zero Friction oil from ProShot after I stripped all the old **** out.
It absolutely hummed today.

Thanks, guys.

I still can't believe what a bargain that pistol, NIB, is on today's market.

It's got next to zero recoil, hums along like a sweet tune, puts 'em smack in the middle and is a breeze to care for. Danged if I don't really like this handgun.

Was looking for 9mm (the minimum required for an NRA defensive shooting class I was about to take) and bought it on a hunch...and Sig's reputation, to be honest. What a good purchase that turned out to be!
