Sorry, limp wristing is what I meant, autocorrect is not always correct.
Limp wristing counteracts some of the recoil of the gun which results in the slide not traveling the full length, thus not completely ejecting the spent shell casing.
FTE can mean either fail to extract or fail to eject. You are describing a failure to extract. If you have a new gun, discuss this problem with the dealer that sold it to you.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limp_wristing
