Hey, can I get any opinions about dry fire with Glocks? Is it safe like they say or should I get snap caps? Makes me a little nervous doing it without snap caps but I hear I shouldn't be. Any opinions?
From the horses mouth sort of to speak, "If someone embarks on a regular, extensive dry firing regimen and continues for a long time………. Then I would suggest using some type of ‘snap caps’ as a precaution."Hey, can I get any opinions about dry fire with Glocks? Is it safe like they say or should I get snap caps?

And to add to the above we use only stock Glock parts in our weapons. No mods at all. We dry fire a lot and encourage it in our other officers and swat guys. It's the only time it has ever happened. It was in a Gen 3 G21.ross4712 said:Stick with dry firing. I do it about 80% of the time to 20% actual range time. I instruct all the time so my actual bullets down range time is small.
If you are gonna dry fire extensively like I do then get a set of snap caps. My TL punched a hole through the breech face of his Glock just from dry firing. Glock replaced it no charge but after that incident we use snap caps.
For most rimfires, this is true. The firing pin on most rimfire guns is free to slam forward into the rim surface of the chamber, peening the rim and/or the pin. Peen the rim, you need a new barrel/chamber.I do believe dry firing is not recommended with rimfire firearms without some sort of snapcap or other device to take the hit.
