DixieThunder 24 said:What do you dry fire with? As far as a round or whatever. And what do you look for when dry firing? Maybe if I start doing this I can fix any errors in my technique causing my low and left shooting.
ShipWreck said:They do wear out after a while. The firing pin will keep hitting it and eventually will make a deep depression. U may get up to 100 pulls of the trigger out of 1. If U keep using them after a while, the depression in the snap cap gets too deep - and then the firing pin won't make contact anymore.. Then, it defeats the purpose...
Tangle said:I spoke to a friend at Gunsite and they are not big on snap caps. They have seen and heard of 'mix ups' where ADs result because someone thought they were inserting a snap-cap and got a live round.
So be careful, and pay attention.
Morphire said:Honestly if I'm only getting 100 pulls out of a snap cap and I pay $15 for 5 of them, then I'm just gonna buy a few spare strikers and dry fire without the snap caps. I'm assuming I can dry fire at least for a few thousand cycles before any issues with the striker rear up. I've got thousands on my Glock 34 striker without ever a need for a replacement.
