Posted on 02/18/2013 5:51:59 AM PST by servo1969
People misunderstand what limping wristing is, what causes limp wristing failures and how such failures can be avoided. The most common pistol for limp wrist failures is the Glock 9mm series. I talk about what causes limp wristing and how to effectively deal with it.
She has at least learned what's causing the problem and how to correct for it. One she steadies up her grip, she can shoot magazine after magazine with no further problems.
Thank you for posting. Good information to be aware of.
I hear about this, but have never actually seen it. Never had a problem with my Glocks or other pistols.
Good video. I have experienced this with my G19. But quickly learned the reason and corrected it.
does this mean Glocks are homophobic guns?
The video gave me an idea. I am going to have them practice intentional limp wristing with the goal of causing malfunctions, so they know what it feels like.
Only if someone tries to suck on the barrel.
At first I thought this was about gays actually using guns and then I realized gays won’t go anywhere near guns like their liberal friends
Thanks for the video ! It helps explain the phenonomen to my wife, who fires the G22 and the M&P 3.8 in 9.
The glocks always seem to give her issues. She gets frustrated by it, but tends to blame the gun. I can see both sides to this.
I have a G22 (Full size slide) with a grip-chopped frame (Down to G27 dimensions). It’s broken in quite abit, and it operates very well - But yeah, you gotta hang on to that sucker for effective results.
I’ve never owned a Glock, so I have no first hand experience...and I suppose this could be a problem with any of the lightweight carry pistols out there....but this seems like a big red flag.
I’ve seen it happen to people on the range...again I don’t know if its because more people own Glocks...or because they are more likely to jam.
I understand its an operator error thing...but in a world with lots of choices for high quality pistols, one almost searches out a differentiating factor...and this seems to be one. I wonder if the people at Glock are trying to make this less likely - hotter ammo? Weaker Spring? Grip extension?
Nice to know. Thx for posting.
Excellent video. I can induce this very easily with my subcompact Kel-Tec .380, but never in my steel framed CZ82. His explanation for why (or why not) is very good.
Apparently you aren’t a limp wrist.
That’s why they aren’t breach loading.
IIRC, fixed-barrel pistols such as the CZ82 are more resistant to that problem.
You can use for example a Glock 19. The proportions are ideal for a female but they do like to jump around. Most shooters would be better served by canting/angling the elbows out some so the muzzle doesn’t pop up so much causing wrist deflection. That allows more force straight down the arms taking limp wristing out of the mix.
Thanks for posting. I have a keltec 32 which fails to extract. The casing gets pulled about halfway out. I’ve been wondering if this is the cause.
Good post. I am having a lot of trouble with malfunctions with my Springfield 1911 high cap .45. Don’t think it is a limp wristing issue. But am looking for a new gun— high cap. Any recommendations? This is not for carry, so I want a full sized pistol with the least potential malfunctions.
The Kel-Tec PF9 is prone to this. You really have to hold on to it.
