      glock 19 & snap caps

      I purchased some A-Zoom snap caps for my Glock 19. I've never used these before so I have a couple of questions. First of all they are not the same size as a 9mm cartridge! Is this normal? Also when I attempted to "shoot" them the trigger can be pulled, but it will not reset. Is that normal?
      also should they perform just like a real cartridge and eject from the pistol and etc?
      Thanks

      I don't know enough about Glocks to tell whether the lack of trigger reset is normal, but no, the snap-caps will not eject like a regular cartridge. A semi-automatic pistol relies on recoil to cycle the slide and eject the cartridge, which is absent in a snap-cap. This factors into one of the big reasons people buy snap-caps, which is to practice how to quickly recover from a failure to fire (FTF).

      The slide needs to be cycled for the trigger to reset.

      As mentioned above, the rounds are not going to be ejected since the slide isn't moving. I think you should take a basic firearms course to learn the physics of what happens when you fire a weapon and how they work. Just a thought.
