    There was some discussion on the forums as to what was actually happening during such failures. This prompted me to break out the 1000 frame per second slow motion camera to see what exactly does happen during a "limp wrist" malfunction.

    I wonder if a glock 19/17 will still limp wrist malfunction with +P ammo, or heavier weight 9mm bullets?

    That's a pretty crazy video. It's the age of Youtube.

    Great Video... When I sent my Kahr back for hanging up , that the first thing they told me " I wasn't holding it right" .. A pistol should shoot regardless how you hold it IMO.

    I had no idea Sturmgewehre was a member here! That's friggin sweeeeeet! I subscribe, along with the 10000000000000 other people in the world.

    Anywho, saw this video and it looks like the slide cycles completely. I'm wondering if it isn't the slide, but the backwards inertia causing the forward slide motion to be too weak to completely cycle the round, or the round being expended is moving back fast enough for the slide to catch it again mid extraction. Probably overthinking it, but I'm a newbie in the handgun world, and we tend to do such things.

    None of those guns would have worked if you rode the slide with your finger. So the analogy breaks down somewhat.

    Not long ago I took my 15 year old daughter to the range.
    Of my several pistols (sig, springfield, xd, kel tec, and glock) the only one she had a malfunction with was with my G19.
    This is an issue to consider and for which to train.

    Simple physics actually, with no sufficient resistance the slide doesn't properly cycle.

    This is a great set of videos, good job and thanks for posting.
