    The Glock Pinch

    I have been practicing rapid changing magazines on my Glock 23, and now have my third blood blister on the palm of my hand. I never got this with my Walther. Has anyone else been Glocked?

    Yes, but in a good way....

    No blood blisters with any of mine. Of course I manipulate the mag release with my thumb...

    Glocked? Nope. Never been an issue and yes, I have made a quick change many, many times. Maybe just not as quick as you. I have done this on my 23, 26, and 19.

    It's not from the release, it's from the space between the grip, and the butt of the magazine.

    A few more times and you'll learn how to hold the gun to avoid it. It's not unique to Glocks.

    Yes, it happens to me with my 26 unless I am VERY careful and do not use the palm of my hand, but the outside edge of the inside......oh heck, you know. Tried it fast with the butt of the mag in my palm a couple of times and got the blood blister also. No problem with the larger models though, so it must have a lot to do with the length of the grip. At least that's my guess.

    Not with a Glock but with another yes. You just have to adjust how you change your mags to avoid doing it. Practice and it will become second nature.

    It isn't so much the gun as the hand holding it.

    As with any manipulation, if you want perform it quickly and accurately, first practice at a slow speed concentrating on the exact movements necessary. As you become more proficient you can increase speed incrementally.
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

    That's the reason I won't carry sub compact guns. I can't stand it nor do I like not having a good firm grip on the pistol

    Yes, I've got the nice blood blister mag pinch 3 times. Twice while participating in IDPA matches and the other time working on mag drills at home. It happened when I was trying to go too fast and slamming the mags home a little too hard. Agree with others, a little practice on mag drills should cure you of this.

    I started to get the G22. I wish I had now. I never had that problem with my Walther P99, a gun I wish I'd never sold. Don't get my wrong, Glock's OK, but it's not as good as a Walther, IMO.

    Learn to lift off your pinkie when you swap out mags. It's 2nd nature for me now since I EDC a 26 and 30S, both have short handles.

    And it's not called getting Glocked, for Pete's sake. Any short handled pistol will do that to you: LCP, shield, nano. You name it. You're just not used to it.

    Get a Sig Seriously, I have never changed my ways to make a gun work for me. I have used a Sig for the longest time because the gun fits me and it is natural. I had a choice of what handgun I wanted to carry in my unit, and though I shot some maybe a tad better than the Sig, I found that I had to "change" to make it work. The Sig just came natural.

    My 2 cents.

    I know it's not really called "getting Glocked", LOL! I should have bought another Walther, or a HK P30LS. I didn't want to spend the money.
