How do snap caps work?
Simply load them into the magazine, just as you do with live ammo.
For dry practice: load an entire magazine with snap caps to practice trigger control. You can chamber a snap cap and it will allow you to press the trigger. The snap cap remains in the chamber after the trigger press, so you can just eject it by manually racking the slide and the next snap cap will chamber, allowing you to press the trigger again.
For live fire: Insert snap caps in random order among your live ammo in the magazine. When the snap cap chambers, your trigger press will highlight any flinching or jerking and will allow you to practice trigger control and sight alignment. Eject the snap cap and keep firing until you hit the next one, allowing you to also practice clearing malfunctions.
I am a newbie as in barely a month of lessons and 9 mm ownership. I am a strong anticipation flincher! I want and needed something that would aid me overcome this. So the search for 'safe', convenient at home practice. I found these in my browsing. Unfortunately, the book on dry fire didn't with these. So more after more browsing 'the coin on top of front sight' was chosen for practice. I was honestly surprised by my improvement in such a short time. It's been less than three days. I practice through 2 magazines three times a day. I went from 0/10 to 5/10 consistently. A side effect is getting practice in racking the slide, loading magazine and overall weapon familiarity. By concentrating on the front sight, coin, and rear sight my aim will be improving too. I strongly recommend this product.
Exactly what I needed
I am fairly new to shooting and recently purchased my first (but not my last! 9mm). My instructor uses these to help with my flinching, so I wanted to have some to use when I am at the range alone. So far, they have worked great and the bonus is getting comfortable clearing a jam. Def a must have for a new shooter.

I got these for training on raining and cold days. But also to get better at shooting and troubleshooting while shooting. Have only tested them out a few times but I see the good potential
