Limp wristing is an urban legend. There is the anticipation of recoil, when the gun is pulled back ever so slightly. I (or anyone) can hold the pistol between two fingers, and it will cycle. The l.w. is taken for granted as self evident, but it is a false belief (which I shared in the past)

Um no it's not a myth at all.

Its not a myth at all. I've had some in depth conversations with glock distributors, armors and glock cert. Instructors who all agreed that limp wristing is quite a real probability

Seen it many times on the range. Also experienced it with mouse guns. Limp wristing is very real.

If you don't believe in limp wristing a Glock...shoot one hand support hand only. When a brass casing hits your forehead you'll know you're limp wristing.

I don't think everyone understood what I was saying. There is something in the shooters hand that may cause the gun to misfire. It is not being limp (passively compliant), it is instinctively twitching to control the recoiling impulse.

The videos I posted clearly demonstrate otherwise.

I wanted to shoot the tulammo as a real test to see worst case scenario. Gun was clean before the 50 rounds I shot btw.

Not sure about limp wrisitng. I've seen My friend shoot other guns without incident. Maybe its a glock issue though.

I'm going to clean it again and go out to test it.
