Your P17 definitely seems to be firing out of battery and appears to be close to a case head separation mini-KaBoom on a 22LR, that's probably not fatal but is still something to be avoided.

After 10K+ rounds of ammo, I'd be looking at carbon buildup in areas that might be missed during the regular cleaning and/or wear. I'd probably try to shoot some polymer safe Gun Scrubber or similar solvent into the innards to dissolve and flush out any carbon deposits that may be back in there, followed by a spray of RemOil.

I'm kinda geeky so I'd also use my Casio digital camera that's capable of low resolution higher frame rate video as a poor man's high speed camera to slow down the firing to see the P17 firing out of battery. That might inform an opinion as to why it's happening.
