    had fun, used two guns, a springfield xd9 and a sig sauer p229

    2 questions.

    1, the clusters of shot when i used the xd9 was all around the center mass/where i was aiming at, but the problem i had was every other shots the brass would get stuck in the chamber. what was i doing wrong that caused that to happen? when my friend used it, it was fine for him.

    2. i then switched to the sig, and the cluster of shots says i'm 'jerking' it and 'breaking wrist down or relaxing too soon'
    what can i do to fix that, and the brass getting stuck wasn't that often w/ the glock, but would happen every few shoots, what can i do to correct this as its pretty fun and i'll go out to the range more often.

    The whole point is to offer some resistance. The way I was told (though I've never had a limpwristing problem) is to hold the pistol as high up on the grip as possible and to make sure the gun makes a straight line from the barrel through your wrist, down your arm.

    The problem is that the frame of the weapon is being allowed to move too much, which means that the slide is not moving far enough in relation to the frame to correctly eject and load the next round.

    If you hold it a little tighter, or at least just push forward on it more, you will force the slide to do more of the moving which will make it all work right. I had that problem with one of the smaller .380's I shot a while ago, with weaker ammo you really had to hold it to make it cycle.
