    So I went to the range with my G26 to put a 100rnds through it.

    I'll put about 70 rnds through it, an the lady put about 30, she had 3 ejection failures in those 30rnds.

    This a new G26 with 100rnds through it at the time.
    I think it's her shooting style, since she's kinda timid with it, but i'll your like inputs

    Looks like a typical case of limp wristing. In short, your lady friends needs to have a bit firmer grasp.

    1) SHE needs someone who can show her how to hold a handgun..SHE is Not supporting the gun with her Left hand..THE Left hand is Not a Plate. 2) SHE had a Smoke Stack, You Swipe it off with the left hand and keep shooting... 3) BUY her a G-19

    She is using a cup and saucer grip and that won't work. As soon as she puts her weak hand on top of her shooting hand, it will stop. Notice the extreme flip she has of the muzzle; the subcompacts are the worst for this.

    Its not just about the grip with the hands or locking the wrist when talking about 'limp wristing'; grip, wrist, elbow, shoulder and torso all contribute to these kinds of failures. She needs a proper grip and stance, which starts with proper instruction.

    What is happening is that as the bullet travels backwards away from the hand gun because of her grip the pistol is also going back wards at the same speed as a result the action "catches" the retreating shell.

    Can someone post a proper grip photo or video? This might help lots of people.

    26's DO NOT kick that hard.

    She needs to step and do what has been said by those above. From grip, to arms, elbows, and stance. You control the Glock, it does not control you.

    Terrible grip and typical case of LW.
    Teach her the proper grip.
