    Took the Wife and new SR9C to the range. Which is broken. LOL

    So the Wife and I took my Walther PPS 9mm and new Ruger SR9C to the range yesterday.

    As usual the PPS shot like a champ without issue.

    The SR9C however didn't like the Wife. She had a failure to feed every time she shot it. (By comparison she had no problems shooting the PPS.)

    When I shot the Ruger I had zero issues btw.

    Should I be worried about the reliability or is her grip the issue?

    The fail to feed could be a problem known as "limp wrist". Your wife did the same thing mine used to do...not hold the grip tight enough, then you will get a fail to feed. You, on the other hand, held the pistol tightly. Congrats on the SR9C. I just got my wife one today as well. We had a problem with fail to fire.

    I also bought my wife a SR9c and when shooting it she will get failure to feed and failure to fire. When I shoot it no problem.

    I see where the problem is. It's her eyesight. She's way too cute for an ugly guy like you.

    Just kiddin'.

    Interesting. I am looking forward to taking my wife and her sr9c out for some practice. I will have to keep an eye on her grip.

    Notice how much more muzzle rise you see with the same gun in her hands vs yours. All pistols must have a minimum resistance to said recoil otherwise the slide does not go to the rear with enough force. Get her to tighten her grip, get into a fighting stance (lean into recoil), unlock her elbows and tighten her arm muscles to absorb recoil.

    All I know is that in the first video the lady next to yours is doing some damage on her target!

    I shoot mine with no problem but it does have a thicker grip than some other guns. Make sure she is keeping tight hold of it.

    Just makes me nervous as I'm planning on mixing up my carry between the PPS and SR9C.

    I may have to run another box through myself to make sure it runs smooth.

    Certain pistols are less finicky how the shooter holds, and maintains control of the weapon while shooting. The Walther falls into this catagory, the Ruger evidently does not, from a lot of these posts and writings that I've read on it.

    Good luck on working with her to try and train her and the firearm to work together, as the Ruger is a nice pistol, and would seem to be a nice match for her.
