Here's the situation. I recently bought a G17 and have put 750 rounds down the pipe. When I go shooting I usually try to take someone with me that has never been shooting before in an effort to pass on our hobby/passion to others. While shooting these rounds I have experienced one FTE and one stovepipe (yeah, I didn't think Glocks were capable of jamming either). The catch is that both of these jams happened while the first time shooters were shooting. The question I have is whether or not you think this issue may be gun related or is probably due to the inexperienced shooter. After each jam I instruct the shooter to grasp the gun firmly and neither of the newbies (or myself) experienced another malf. What do you fellas think?
