      Snap Caps Snap Caps

      If I buy snap caps, does that mean I can dry fire my guns at will no worries or is there still risk in dry firingeven with snap caps?

      They won't prevent damage in a rimfire, but for most/all centerfire guns, using caps during dry fire will be better for the mechanism than not using them.

      Somewhere in the deep, forgotten recesses of my age-addled mind is the information that snap caps are also available for .22 rimfire chambers.
      It'd be worth checking out.

      But if they're not, one may use a fired .22 case as a snap cap, as long as it is rotated about 1/8-turn between snaps, so the firing pin doesn't keep hitting the same place.

      I always use snap caps.

      I always have.

      Some manufacturers say you don't need snap caps - I use them anyway.

      Snaps caps are very inexpensive insurance indeed.
