Sorry if this question has been asked before. With the cost of ammo, is it wise to practice with 1 caliber, but carry a different caliber, for self defense? I own 9mm and 40cal.

Dry firing has kept me pretty sharp on my long gaps between shooting sessions.
So I see it being fine practicing with cheaper calibers.
When Obama spurred the last gun and ammo shortages I bought .40 barrels for my .357Sig Glocks. I also have a 9 conversion for my G33.

I bought snap caps, for both calibers I own. But I need ro start doing dry fire exercises.

Perfect practice develops good habits.
Practice with what you have, but practice like you play. Same caliber, same gun, same ammo. Everything needs to be developed to memory.
I'll carry a 9MM on occasion, but have to mess with it enough in holster practice and draw to be comfortable. It really isn't worth the trouble. If it were a G19 vs a G23, it wouldn't be much of a change.
