Well, my arms don't go up when I dry fire but yet I haven't tried a missing round or a snap cap so can't say they wouldn't. I have had a few where the semi didn't load another round or went through trying to shoot 7 shots from a 6 shooter and I don't remember my arms going up.
I think (think being the operative word) that I am just not holding it correctly for the recoil. I don't "bounce" as much with 22 or 380 or 9mm as I do with the 45s.
But I will certainly try the snap caps. I feel it is a good idea for practice anyway.
