Maybe i'm losing my mind or I need to take a training class.I took the gun to the dealer who sold it to me today and he looked it over and said that the ejector rod & hook look just fine,and that I am probably limp wristing it,he says a limp wrist will cause a FTE.I guess that I thought limp wristing caused stovepipes,not FTE's.I never had a FTE until I used Winchester ammo.Maybe the Winchester has more power than the other brands I was using causing more recoil and a limpwrist?maybe?I don't know,but I trust the guy in telling me the gun is fine,that's what I wanted to hear.He offered for me to come back to the shop tomorrow and he will take me out back and show me how to shoot right.I know I better figure out how to not limp wrist before I start loading my gun with Corbon +P,or I might have a bad day the day I ever need my gun.I did notice he had a new Mossberg 500 for $369 in his shop that caught my eye.Maybe I would be better off with that than being a noob with a pistol.

The gun dealer is set on the fact that i'm limp wristing,and that my limp wristing is causing the Failure's to eject.I went out with 50 rounds of Federal FMJ today and on the 2nd shot,it FTEd,then it did it again on the 3rd shot.I then made my wrists as stiff as I could,and began to pull the muzzle down as soon as the muzzle begins to recoil,and I went through the remaining 47 rounds with no more FTE's.Do I really need to stiffen my wrists this much?They hurt now.To make matters more confusing,my friend just told me that his Beretta would FTE,and that he took it to a gunsmith,and the gunsmith cleaned the magazine and it stopped FTEing.

Simple, have somebody else with more experience shoot your gun with the same ammo...

My P95 has never given me trouble. I have no doubt that I have limp wristed it a few times. But it has never caused it to FTE. This may be a stupid question. Please don't be offended. But, have you cleaned your gun really good? Sometimes a little grime between the frame and the slide will stop the gun from cycling properly.

I agree with NGIB in letting someone with experience shoot it and see what happens. Knowing your condition, I suspect that when you clean it, you really clean it.

Also, get some hand exercisers and use them. Easy to do when just sitting and watching the tube. That will help in wrist strength.

I spend too much time cleaning it.I really think it's the combination of the gun,the ammo and my experience.I did some googling and seen some videos of intentional limp wristing to test guns,and the heavier all metal guns didn't have a problem,but once they pulled out the Glock,it FTE'd every shot with an intentional limp wrist.The P95 is polymer also,so I suspect I just need to get a better grip.It's funny how the first 3 round I shot last night,I wasn't thinking about the grip and got 2 FTEs,then I squeezed the gun like I was chocking someone and the gun never FTEd the rest of the box of ammo.

Just to clear things up,when I say FTE I am reffering to a failure to extract,no eject.I get virtually no stovepipes.

does my claw look alright?It almost looks round at one end,but I don't know if that's normal,or would cause a problem.I wouldn't think that the claw hooks from the top or bottom,but from the center of the claw.But I don't have any idea,I don't know much about guns.
