I wish I had a happy story with Glock but I don not like 'em. I dropped 500 bucks about 8 years ago on a Glock 19 and had nothin' but misfires. I brought it to a gun smith who "fixed" it and nothing but the samo old crap. I was so fed up with it I sold it to a buddy who said he would fix it. He used it for awhile, now he justs keeps it in his safe. He shoots an XD, I on the other hand have nothing but good things to say about my Smith and Wesson Sigma sw9ve.

Hey mauser if your buddy wants to get rid of that safe queen I'll take it off his hands. I'm always in the market to buy a back up gun for my wife. Besides she is a Glock armorer and would love to tinker with it.

YES SIR! Now if only they would make an XDm45, that would be one awsome pistol.

Springfield should release the XDM45 shortly as I recently purchased the XDM40 and that would be my luck!

Limp wristing is VERY common. Grasping the shooting wrist with the supporting hand is NOT the answer. Attaining and maintaining a proper grip is the answer. You should only experience a slight muzzle rise when firing a 9mm. If it is jumping up more than 3" or so, you are limp wristing.

Grasp the grip firmly with the shooting hand. Do not try to squeeze the life out of it, this will adversely affect the trigger control. Wrap the support hand around the FRONT of the grip frame under the trigger guard. Lay the support hand thumb along the frame forward of the shooting hand thumb. Squeeze with the support hand firmly.

I have seen such malfuntions in MANY light framed pistols. Alloy or polymer frames do not have enough inertia to resist rearward motion. A steel frame tends to take care of it's self. You may think you are gripping firmly enough, but if you are getting FTF's in a Glock you ARE limp wristing.

You know that is what is going to happen. It always does. That is why I have been saving a little money every payday for my XDm45. Unless my wife finds out and makes me pay some kind of bill but that is how that works also.

I have owned many semi-autos and anytime I get too relaxed, I have feed or ejection problems. Most centerfire semi-automatic pistols perform poorly when held too loosely. Gripping the wrist of the hand holding the weapon with the off hand is also not highly recommended. Grip the weapon with both hands and conttrol its recoil.
