Limp-Wristing the Semi-Auto Handgun

Limp-Wristing the Semi-Auto Handgun into a Malfunction.

Since I am like a liaison to many citizens and martial artists that are new to handguns, this video explains the problem well.

Cool vid.
What I've witnessed is that if you limp-wrist the new .45 XDS it will malfunction regularly.  Some people have said that this is a gun defect.  I disagree.  The gun is so small, and the moving parts have very little kinetic mass, so if there is not a firm backstop for the mechanical energy to eject/chamber a round, then it will malfunction.  Limp-Wristing the new stuff will cause issues not related to the gun.
