I bought a Glock 19 from my gal pal Sara who had em in bunches, her hubby used to be LE and issued a 21, who got her into shooting, and now they have 6 guns between the two of them, everything from sub compacts to competition guns with fancy fiber optic sights. Last year she lent me several guns in different calibers to let me discover what caliber and gun I would want. I ended up with a Sig 226 that had a remarkable 700 dollar price in a state where 1000 is the norm.
Anyway, I never forgot the 19, so I bought her older model because I always liked it, though when shooting one handed it always jams on me because of the limp wrist factor. I noticed Glocks are very prone to that, where as some guns I can fire hanging practically limp in my hands. I normally shoot thumbs forward, my arms in a triangle. But one handed shooting is a skill I want to better myself at, strong arm and weak arm, because a full tactical stance is not always going to happen. So, I have run into jamming problems do to limp wristing that I want to stop, and I'm embarrased because I think it may be a strength issue.
For the record I am female, and I don't have mega muscles, though I do shoot a lot and do regular push-ups and crunches as well as my jogging routine to get more arm and hand strength, as well as for my overall well being.
Is there a secret besides strength that will give me more control, such as body or wrist position? Should I shoot stiff armed or with a bend? Any help would be great. I love my new (used) Glock, and I want to be able to shoot it just as well as my other handguns, but I'm new to polymer guns and their little quirks.
Ps. Do you guys have this problem to, and is it common?
Thank you all
