The need for a "perfect" grip can be drastically overstated. I understand that the OP has a very particular issue and that other comparable pistols don't have that issue for him. It doesn't matter exactly where the fault lies in that. As he is not required to use a particular pistol switching seems a simple enough answer.

I have never experienced such an issue and I assure you that my form, including my grip, is FAR from perfect.

Over a dozen Glocks over the years and I have never had a problem with them functioning. The OP on the other hand seems to have problems all the time.

It would seem self evident the OP should not own, shoot, or carry Glocks.

If they work for you fine. If they don't work for you...fine! Why all the grousing about it? Oh yea, people like to beat up on Glocks. Well if that works for you go ahead but I'm not reading any more of this. (smile)

To the OP--when you say "boom, jam"--what actually happens when the gun jams? Be sure to describe as accurately as you can the actual jam prior to "fussing" with the gun.

lol I love Glocks and think they are superior to other handguns due to their simplicity and so few parts. I believe reliability is king.

Now I have owned basically only Glocks my entire life and this problem is relatively new. I mainly noticed it once I started to go to the range for the first time ever regularly. Also I hurt my wrist this year so that didn’t help.

I’ve shot more this year then all the previous years in my life put together.

So Glocks are damn good guns and I hate to have to sell them all, but all the compacts I guess don’t work for me anymore for whatever reason. The Glock 19 is basically 100% unless I purposely tried to induce a limp wrist failure. Even when I do normally the Glock 19 has a failure to feed from trying to limp wrist it.
While if I purposely try to induce a limp wrist on a Glock 43 it’ll normally have a stovepipe, or a failure to feed. So it seems the smaller the gun the worse it is. Which makes sense.

But like I said I decided to move past Glock and try something else that has worked for me, like S&W shield, etc.

Thats how glock are unfortunately. Polymer guns seem more prone to this but glocks are the worst. Hotter ammo seems less prone to this, if not completely eliminates it.

U can try something else. I dont think you can induce a limpwrist malfunction in a sig classic. Those are larger heavier guns though unfortunately.

Glock 40s seem less prone to this than 9mm, but they will punish your wrist more.

Ive personally not had an issue with lumpwristing, although i did have a gen 4 glock 23 that had a few fte’s for unknown reasons, so who onows if grip played into it.

The Glock does not "limp wrist" ... that is entirely on the shooter.

I've seen new shooters use Glocks, who's grips were not ideal, and I've never seen malfunctions.

If a gun limpwrists, I "forgive it" for a couple of hundred rounds. If it keeps doing it, it's gone. I have approx 2 dozen semiautos currently, and none of them limpwrists. Most are steel or alum framed with steel slides, but I have several polymer guns from SAR, Taurus, and Tanfoglio, and they all shoot fine with a very weak grip on them. Bad ammo is about the only thing that causes any issues and I haven't had any lately. They even shoot the steel cased stuff that has caused problems in the past without a problem.

Good grief, read the thread. Guns don't "limp wrist", people do.
