    Yeah I think I'll listen to all the years of wisdom and common sense that tells me the proper way to grip a pistol when firing.


    Whoa some of pistols were pointing dangerously close to the operator, the SA pistols could have caused bad things.

    Interesting that several models appeared to be totally immune to limp wristing.

    TRP= .I am super jealous of that Beretta 92 though.Eye candy.
    I love it when people go out and do these tests,proving that when you have to,limp wristing can work.But id rather shoot proper and be accurate.

    What if your hand or wrist is injured during a SD situation and you are incapable of gripping in the normal manner in which you are accustom? This happened to a guy with a 1911 (I wish I could find the story link) who was shot in the hand and was unable to engage the grip safety of his weapon. I'm just thinking about possibilities. When stuff happens, it rarely happens in a predictable or consistent manner.

    Interesting that every one of the Glocks experienced at least one, usually multiple, limp wrist malfunctions. Nice to see the XD didn't. But I thought it was interesting how many of the metal frame guns never malfunctioned at all.

    Yah, I noticed that too - it freaked me out a little. He easily could have popped himself in the head.

    I'm not an inherent limp-wrister, but Glocks do require a 'crush grip' if you plan on hitting what you're aiming for. I do believe heavier guns are a little more forgiving in this area.

    First thing I thought was here's a video of how to shoot yourself square between the eyes while being stupid. Second thought was who actually tells and videos the fact that you have a pistol that hasn't been cleaned in ten years and is covered in rust?

    Then I am sure that all the years of wisdom and common sense will also tell you that it might be occasions where you are not able to grip a pistol in the proper way when firing it

    Wow, I guess the Glocks really are prone to the limp wrist malfunction. Thanks for the videos, pretty interesting.

    the grip safety actually requires the gun is held a bit firmer to engage it...

    interesting test...i have seen some glock limp wrist failures in compacts and subcompacts with the lighter slides when women are firing in speed drills during training...but i can let em float all over the place in my hands and not have a problem...

    Never would of guessed the Glock wouldn't have fired because of the way it was held. Thanks for the post GM
