Maybe you should direct him to Defensivecarry dot com. We all would be happy to help you guide him in his path of self defense.
As others have suggested, you can send him here. Ask him to post a few questions about his predicament and what he thinks. Folks will give him an earful, I'm sure.my best friend ... He has this 9mm he tells me he's planning to carry on a regular basis ... it misfeeds a round ... the magazine pops loose.
It sounds allot more serious than just his grip. I agree with the others, send him here and let him give some specifics of the pistol and he'll get some very valuable information in return. Information that just may save his or a loved ones life. :bier:I don't want my friend relying on this gun in a life and death situation, but he didn't seem too concerned about it, saying he just needed to practice his grip, etc.
Hmm, new gun, new to him gun or used gun with problems? Did you look it over for any visible problems or try shooting it yourself?Last week my best friend and I go out for a bit of target practice after I pick up my newest pistol. (Ruger 22 Charger™ *Rimfire Autoloading*Pistols)
He has this 9mm he tells me he's planning to carry on a regular basis. Well, he no sooner says that than it misfeeds a round.
The very next clip, he takes aim at the target, and the magazine pops loose.

Any thoughts? He has other pistols, I'm not sure why he chose this one to carry, other than it's small size. I don't know what model it is, but it's semi-auto with a self cocking hammer, and fairly small.
I don't think he's started carrying full time yet. I don't either for that matter. The concept is still pretty new to me. In fact, when I took the CCW class this spring, I had to borrow two pistols for the range portion of the class. I didn't buy my G26 till a few weeks later.It's his carry gun? The one he's staking his life on, should he need it?
Keep working on him. Hopefully, he can see the error of this path.
There are quite a lot of questions to answer and get comfortable with, as well as skills to acquire, certainly. You'll get there.I don't think he's started carrying full time yet. I don't either for that matter. The concept is still pretty new to me.
