Shot process problem with a new gun in Slow Fire

Post by Oleg G on 6/18/2017, 6:40 pm

Folks,

I need an advice. My shot process for the first Slow Fire relay includes dry firing shots until I know that all is as it should be and I am ready to release live shots. With my Ruger 22/45 this was easy - I don't load at first, fire as many dry fire shots as I need to get settled, then load and proceed to fire the string.
I just got a Model 41. (Happy Father's Day! Smile)Great gun but it is not safe to dry fire. So now I am at a loss:
1. How do I go about safely firing my needed dry fire shots with this gun? Or,
2. How do I alter my shot process to account for this issue?

Please help.

Dry fire a different pistol. Or, have a mag loaded with snap caps.

Brilliant and simple! Thanks, Len. I'll try both approaches to decide, which is better for me.

Larry's Guns offers chamber plugs which I used to dry fire with my S&W 41 or Sig Trailside:

Cut a piece if magnetic business card to protect the chamber but not be engaged by the extractor, or use a chamber plug.

I use drywall anchors, white ones the same size as a .22 LR. I snip the side off so the extractor can't grab and eject it when I cock the gun. Works for quite a bit of DF practice. I also put the anchor in when I'm done shooting and pull the trigger so the pistol isn't always cocked when it's stored.
