    yesterday i was at the range working with a lady and her husband was 3 lanes down from us(2 inbetween) this was an indoor range with dividers between each range.

    Her husband was firing a 1911--and we were being showered with brass. I watched him for a minute and he was breaking his wrist a little bit with the recoil--I did offer the suggestion that he tighten up his wrist a little.

    So my question--is the 1911 prone to throwing brass (more than say my glock) or was it just something in his techniques?

    thanks

    In my experience they tend to be the same

    You limp wrist any auto, it will effect the cycle of the slide and cause FTE's.

    I'm talking about brass flying up & over the walls between lanes and landing on us 3 lanes away!

    Yea, that would be abnormal.
     
  7. My G21 flings them 2 lanes down. I just calk it up as that is one of the down falls of a public indoor range.

    Like glocknloaded has on his AR "Pardon My Brass" :D
