    The almighty G-17 failed almost every round, it's big brother didn't do too much better. I do the same thing with my 1911's to show new shooters it's not always them, especially when they get on these forums and everyone accuses them of limp-wristing.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with the difference in actions. The H&K and Smith are both DA/SA. Does it take less force to cock the hammer on the H&K than to set the action on the Glock? That was interesting. Somthing to consider for weak wristed shooters huh? I wonder if the issue is compounded with the smaller glocks due to less slide mass.

    Though I'd like to see the test done of weapons with similar actions like a Taurus 24/7 or XD or Styer M9/M40-A1.

    Good Video,

    so what exactly was this supposed to prove?

    That people will really go out of their way to bash Glock.

    I have a test - I'm going to leave the safety on my 1911 and pull the trigger. I bet it won't fire, so then I'll blame the system, instead of just taking the safety off like I'm supposed too... Same idea - don't limp-wrist = no problems...

    BTW, I carry a Sig.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Interesting video but I don't shoot my Glocks or any other weapons with my wrist bent almost 90 degrees to my arm. Maybe they make other weapons so that those that are limp wristed can shoot. I guess now someone will make a video with shooting a gun sideways so that we can understand why all the BG do that in the movies....

    I didn't think they where bashing Glocks

    I can make any gun malfunction if I try too.

    Plus we don't know if all of the pistols had standard recoil springs, worn springs are heavy duty springs.

    That is the worst case of limp wristing I've seen. So the point is don't hold your Glock like that?
