Reminds me of my wife. She won't let me hunt at all when we first got married. She now lets me hunt alligators.

I promised to make her alligator handbags. LOL.

I enjoyed reading your story . I was never to much into guns until my hubby got me shooting ...and got me a little Ruger LCR, which I loved and its been well up hill from there .... :)

My hubby got his FFL and we started a little business out of our home here in EP... I was not to crazy about it to begin with, but after meeting a some of the customers we deal with, I have really enjoyed it ...I have enjoyed it so much that next week I will be heading to Austin to get my LTC instructor certificate ...and so very excited

I have myself a nice gun collection too including my Ruger LCP .380....that is my concealed carry, could not ask for a better companion ...

Hope you keep enjoying shooting...

Use snap caps instead.

Not feeding properly is a jam. That is what you want so the firearm requires clearing.
Snap caps are best for dry fire or misfire or for trigger control. They won't simulate a malfunction that needs to be cleared.



Boys! Boys! Boys! :tiphat:

Both of you have good points and neither of you is exclusively correct. I use both empty cases AND snap caps in magazines to get my students used to clearing a jam and to handle a hang-fire. Both have their uses and students of the handgun should be prepared to handle either one.
