Because they are a waste of money.....You CAN dry fire a few hundred rounds after dinner......It wont hurt a thingI've heard that a reasonable amount of dry-firing is okay, so long as you're not doing a few hundred dry shots a night. Why not just get practice rounds?
No, the cardboard trick is so you dont have to rack the slide everytime. The trigger will reset itself but it doesnt have the same feel as it does normaly.Can anyone comment on the practice displayed in this video? Does the cardboard act like a Snap Cap does, with the only difference being the spongy pull he mentions toward the end?
Dry firing without using snap caps might hurt another gun, but, not a Glock! Other guns are made of common ordinary carbon and stainless steels; but, a Glock is made of indestructible Austrian, 'Nitro +' ordinance proof steel. (One of the hardest metals known to man!)
I've occasionally heard it referred to as, 'magic steel'. Don't ya think it's, kind 'a, pointless to waste perfectly good money on snap caps that you're never really going to need to use! :thumbsup:
How often do you dryfire only to take it apart? Its not like you are doing it 50 to 100 times a day..What else would break a breach face pushing it outward other than the striker slaming into the backside?If it were bad to dry fire, I don't think Glock would have engineered the pistol to require a dry fire before disassembly...?
You Dawg you! Were you that smooth before you married her? What a lucky gal:embarassed:.What they said. I have the wife handle her 23 every night after dinner. This includes inserting mags, dry fire and breaking the gun down so that she is 100% confident and competant to handle the weapon in any situation.
