Yeah, somewhere, but I doubt she will have them done in time. It took about 2-1/2mths for my hat to turn up. Great work but it is small time and she has allot of orders coming in, with military personal taking first place(which I told her I do/did not have a problem with).
Limp wristing is when the shooter does not positively grip the pistol. If the pistol is not held positively, the slide may not completely extract the spent case, and load the next round. I'm not good at explanation, maybe someone else here can elaborate. Basically, if someone isn't holding it right (firmly), then it won't go into battery.
Have someone take a photo of your grip on the pistol, in the stance you naturally snap into before you shoot.
Limp wristing is the result of you the shooter absorbing the greater majority of recoil energy and thus depriving the recoil operation of the firearm the full energy required to operate.
In simple talk. Your wrist is not being "locked up" when firing, the gun generally flops about after firing. This loose grip robs the recoil energy produced by the round being fired. That energy is required for the slide to cycle properly.
Were there any other shooters using the pistol. If so, were they experiencing the same problem? Is the gun and/or magazine(s) new or old?
ETA I really really really hope you weren't firing like the guy in your avatar.... Please tell us you weren't shooting like a gangster.
Nice holster, and a nice lookin Shemagh as well. Glock 21? Just a guess based on the size of the grip.
