Neither the OP or his wife have shot handguns. And you want to already put a 42 in the hands of a novice for SD. I won't call YOU ignorant. But I see all I need to know about your expertise in SD.
Looks like you are a contradiction there...

I have no idea what your level of "expertise" is...but you sure like to make a lot of assumptions on folks you don't know.

My issue with your original statement was the word "woman" Had you said "inexperienced shooter", we wouldn't be having this conversation.

But you said woman, and that clearly made the statement sexist, and as a husband and father of a family with three female shooters, it was insulting.

Now, that said, I would not own a G42 personally because it is notorious for issues. So I too think the gun has issues, but those issues, if present, materialize with both male AND female shooters.

So get of your high, sexist horse, and quit acting like the south end of your northbound ride.

Thanks for the info, I appreciate the knowledge and look forward to picking your brains. My wife did in fact in jam up g42 on her third shot. Our Two friends who have been working with us told her that she was limp wristing it. This was on her friends well shot g42. They explained what it was and that her friend had same issues at first. After an afternoon of shooting she never had another issue with it once form was corrected. I am more than confident in her abilities to handle more than a revolver. She did just fine with a .40 and 9 mm, she just doesn't like the size of them for future conceal. We are inexperienced however i feel most start out with no experience.Time on the range with instruction will help that out.

The reason Glock's have this "limp wrist' issue is due to the guns design. The gun frame is so lightweight that if there isn't sufficient resistance to allow the slide to cycle properly unless the firearm is held properly. Can't cheat physics...

If you just run a dry cleaning patch through the barrel you can't go wrong.

You want to give a woman a revolver because...why exactly? She's not smart enough to use a semi-auto?

So let's handicap her with a rounds limited, slow to reload, harder recoiling, bulkier to carry handgun because she has breasts?

Your statement is seriously flawed...

Agreed.

When someone states "Not to be fill-in-the-blank, BUT...", that's a clear indicator that said denier is in fact exactly what the fill-in-the-blank description was.

Total sexist fail. I'm embarrassed for him, it was so blatantly generalized, condescending, and ignorant. 🏻*

My question is before we shoot the first time should we clean them or not. Ive read clean em, Ive read shoot em. What says the Glock owners. Pardon my ignorance.

Back on topic, you're good-to-go shooting a Glock straight out of the box. I've done it. Thousands have. But, it never hurts to learn how to field strip your new guns either. While disassembled, inspect the firearm, run a bore snake or some patches through the barrel, add a touch of Ballistol to the rails, reassemble and go to town!

Check out Hickok45's channel in YouTube. He has a very good Glock cleaning video.

I would also recommend signing yourself and your wife up for an introductory to firearms class. Safety first.

Good shooting! Welcome to the forum!

Thanks, and I agree when someone starts out with a statement like that its shows their intentions generally. We do plan on instructional courses in fact many of them. It is a way we can go on dates with out the kiddos.
