Hello,
This question is not if it is safe to dry-fire your rimfire handgun;
I am currently practicing trigger control; routine and follow through with dry fire

I am just wondering for those of you who do dry fire; what do you use?

plastic anchors; snap caps, spent casings;

I have seen people use a self made device for blocking the hammer from hitting the firing pin on a model 41; does this give you the same feel on the trigger as snap caps?

also have seen some people use ear plugs in the chamber

I'm getting a 1st series colt woodsman match target, and high standard victor and wondering if people had experience with dry firing these handguns.

I usually use a plug that came with my Larry's gun that acts as a chamber plug and dry firing aid but I assume it won't would for most guns (didn't work for my model 41); since the action needs to be open a few millimeters

thanks

I use a piece of magnetic business card or a dryfire plug for the Victor (and the Pardini). I use the magnetic business card for the Benelli.

Yellow dry wall anchor. Perfect for revolver or auto. When worn out change it to a new one. Pick up a box of em (not sure how many but there are tons of em in a box) get em from home depo or lowes. Cheap, easy, works, and doesn't wreck your firing pin or breech face.

Nothing, but I have an AW-93 where you do not need a snap cap, etc.  One of the reasons why I bought it.

When practicing dry fire in California be sure not to load more then 10 plastic rounds in the magazine. Rolling Eyes

The Pardini dry fire plug is excellent.

Dry wall anchor.  The 22 snap caps don't last and cost more

A slice of an old refrigerator magnet stuck to the breech face works well for me.

An eci flag that I whittled to also be a dry fire plug. Otherwise, I used to use fired cases.

I stumbled upon these direct from Germany.  Looks like the same ones Larry Carter (RIP) sold.

Most of the .22 guns I have are safe to dry fire without any snap cap or plug. Those that are not (two of my Morini CM22) came with plastic red dry fire plugs. I have yet to see any trace of damage on any of them. Apparently they just prevent the slide from going fully into battery, so the hammer drops but doesn't actually strike the firing pin.

How do you know if your .22 is safe to dry fire?
I have a S&W model 41, is it safe to dry fire?
Thanks

Orange dry fire caps for a while.  Now switched to yellow drywall anchors.  Good for a bunch of squeezes.  And don't get stuck in the chamber after the rim is hammered like the dry fire caps.
