    So Sunday I went and got my CHL when I went to lunch another guys gun broke, an asked to shoot mine. Upon returning he said it had jammed ( wasn't fully chambering a new round) last night I thoroughly cleaned the gun looked it over and oiled it.. Shot this morning and it jammed again.. Any ideas? This is my first glock in years. Best go I've ever owned so far.

    Oh, not sure then. When I got my gen4 19 it was brand new and doing the same thing. I just cocked the slide back about a hundred times and put a few hundred rounds through it and it stopped. Maybe it still needs a little "breaking in"
     
  5. he limp wristed it i have seen that towith my G17 if the G17 is limpwristed it will FAIL TO FEED and this is due to people not knowing how to shoot or not use to shooting all the time.

    Oh okay, when I shot this morning though I don't limp wrist, I may have though. I'll shoot again tonight and see how it goes. Best shooting gun I've ever had though.

    My G17 had a failure to feed when I used TulAmmo. Steel cased

    I've shot around 400 rounds of Tul ammo in my G23 gen 3 and no problems. I have shot at least 600 total and it was brand new when I bought it. The other rounds were the remanufactured box you can get at Dicks sporting goods.
     
  9. I see limp wristers, they dont know they are limp wristing. There was a jam thread a few days ago, someone posted a great video in it.

    If you want to know if you are limp wristing for sure have someone take a video of you shooting. Most any cell phone these days has the capability. A friend of mine thought he had a good grip. I stood behind him at the range to take the video and he was quite surprised. He really improved after the reveal.
