    Is there such a thing? I like to dry fire when I can't get to the range. Keeps my arthritic hands loose. What can I use for my S&W .22? Fired shell casings? Something else?

    Yep. I have some. They haven't held up very well, because they're made of cheap plastic.

    One of my fellow bullseye shooters has found that plastic screw anchors the right size do a fine job, and cost almost nothing. Take a fired .22 round to your hardware store and match its size to screw anchors.

    The ones I have seen are also plastic. The plastic screw anchors seem to be a good idea and much cheaper.

    I have often spun expended rounds around and used them in a revolver. Works fine for the weapon. However, safety concerns bump up.

    Plastic screw anchors. Good idea. Would never have thought of that. I'll take a trip down to ACE tomorrow.
