  • For those of you having trouble understanding this:
    An automatic cycles by using some energy from the round to push the slide back on the body of the pistol.
    If the pistol is not being held firmly, the slide does not move back, but rather takes the body of the pistol with it.
    This is especially true of composite framed pistols, as they have less inertial resistance to the moving slide due to their light weight.

    Imagine trying to unscrew a bottle-cap without holding onto the bottle: the bottle w More..

  • Glocks also fail this test, as most lightweight/polymer handguns do.

  • Interesting test. Makes sense that if you allow too much recoil in your hands the force of the slide is lessened somewhat 'stove piping" can happen. I'll try it on my .45 when I get a chance.

  • A perfect example of why shooting like a gangsta is dumb.

  • If wounded, just use two hands...

  • Looks like they're using shitty ammo.

    • @CrapFactory that may be true but the jamming is caused by the limp grip. recoil operated pistols need a firm grip to cycle properly.
      this problem also occured in the german police where some female officers reported malfunctions of the new H&K service pistols and it later was determined that the malfunction was in fact because of der sissy grip

    • @CrapFactory

      That's just what happens when you shoot limp-wristed.

  • so it jambs if it isn't gripped strong enough, resulting in less kick back?

  • Did both of them keep jamming?
    Doesn't matter how it shoots when your disabled, it first needs to shoot.

  • so both weapons get jammed because the casing doesn't eject?

  • This test is a fail. Every time they chamber another round they have to grip the pistol tightly which contradicts the test in the first place. If your really that wounded, save one for yourself.
