    After going thru a $9.00 package (6) of .22 LR snap caps while setting up the trigger on my new CZ 455, I remembered an old trick from many years ago. These actually work better than and last longer than commercial snap caps.
  2. Semi-Auto Handguns
    As I almost always wear a belt and suspenders....and always use snap caps on my hammer-fired pistols I'm wondering if I'm correct using snap caps on my striker-fired pistols. I see no reason why not, but are they necessary or advised? On my S&W's (SD9, Shield and SW990L) it's easy to rooster...

  10. Semi-Auto Handguns
    I tried these supposedly decent Snap Caps in my new Ruger LC9. After firing them they are hard to eject. I rack the slide and they usually bounce around in the chamber instead of ejecting. I have to lock open the slide and shake them out or pull them out. One actually got partially jammed into...

    Only here a short time and have already gotten some incredible advice. Never thought to purchase snap caps to practice loading and unloading my firearm.
