Rimfire Practice

Post by sjs on 6/14/2018, 6:36 pm

I have been reading material here and on the Encyclopedia site with great interest and enjoyment.  I decided to give Bullseye a try and found an indoor match about an hour away but it is only rimfire.  So I bought a Ruger MK IV Competition and some NRA targets, and in my one trip to the range did one handed shooting at 25 yards for the first time in many years.  I love it. 

So I bought some snap caps, and some drywall anchors, and tried to follow the advise I have read many times about the value of dry firing.  There must be some secret to this.  With a revolver I can put in the snap caps and dry fire as long as I like but with a semi auto, I must rack the bolt for every shot, which extracts and ejects the snap cap for every shot.  It lost its appeal rather quickly.

Is there some better way to dry fire or do folks just not do it with rimfire semi autos?  Of course most of you are using true target pistols and perhaps those can be dry fired without a problem.  Any advice?

Cut a notch in the dry wall anchor where the extactor is grabbing it

Or, load ten in the magazine. But that can still get old. I usually use a 1911

I don’t use snap caps on my Ruger.

I cut a refridgerator magnet to fit the breech face of my HighStandard barrel and use that to hold the slide slightly out of battery. I've done this for the last 3 yrs or more, no peening or bad firepins, works for me.
