I hope this is the right place for this.
My wife has a XD9 Tactical, and she has 2 issues when shooting. The first issue she has is a FTE, which we have traced mostly to her not having a firm enough grip on the gun and causing the FTE. I have shot several mags through it without issue, which is what leads us to believe it is her grip. We are working on her having a firmer grip and locking her wrist. My question regarding this is would a heavier recoil spring help to reduce the feel of the recoil some, or is it best to just focus on her grip?
Second issue, is she has some issue with racking the slide and cocking the slide with the stock spring. I know that if we put in a light recoil spring it might make the first problem worse.
Would anyone suggest this slide pull to help her out with being able to pull the slide back all the way? PISTOLGEAR | YOUR ONE-STOP SHOP FOR ALL THINGS PISTOL
We shoot Remington UMC 115 gr, and we have just over 300 rounds through the gun.
Any suggestions are welcomed.
