I've been continuing my training using snap caps mixed with live rounds -- 5 snap caps mixed with 1 live round. It has helped me tremendously. My range officer friend noticed and congratulated me. Then he told me a story.

A competition shooter told him that he was off and was going back to using snap caps.

And just today, at the range, a different (young) range officer watched me and eventually asked me why I use dummy rounds.

I explained: Because I have a flinching habit and using snap caps cures it. Whether the gun goes bang or click, the shooting process is the same. Also, I don't burn through ammo like I used to and I also ingrain the "tap, rack, bang" drill.

I told him to talk with my range officer friend about it. He replied "that's awesome"
