    I dry fire the heck out of my S&W revolvers but I'm a new Glock owner. Bought a 19 for CCW. Is there any problem with dry firing a Glock (without snap caps)?

    Thanks!

    I've dry fired my Glocks more than actual shooting them and had no problems.

    They're great training pistols.

    But if you don't want to wake up the wife, snap caps give a soft click sound.:evil:

    Dry fire away!

    Ever notice what you have to do to get the slide off a Glock?

    Push the slide back a quarter inch, depress the two catches on the front of the frame, and it let go forward under spring pressure.

    ???

    But before doing that, you have to make sure it's not loaded, and then dry fire the weapon.

    I wouldn't dry fire a S&W revolver without a snap cap. Glock is fine.

    Although you don't need a snap cap, it does force you to verify there's not a live round chambered.
