FTF and FTEs can be shooter induced. Example A.
Firing with the thumbs up or straight out,depending on the brand and make, can induce the slide or one of the levers on the frame to be hit by one's flesh.This in turn causes physical contact with the moving parts of the gun,for a magazine to be dropped, the safety to be triggered, or a jam of some kind.

Even limp wristing can cause problems. Shooters may very well be unaware of this happening and swear that everything was done correctly when this is not the case.

This all happens to old and new shooters alike.

Occasional bad cartridges can cause FTE and FTF troubles as well.

While reliability is a major issue, there is more to this than just the gun's mechanical functioning well.
