Question, how long - how many trigger presses - will a 9MM snap cap lase? These are the red plastic type with the spring in the center.

Thanks in advance, Benny

I've had them last for hundreds and I've had them break on me after a few. The majority last for a long time.

I believe U need to get rid of them once the hole made by the firing pin gets too deel. After that, the firing pin won't, or barely will. make contact w/ the snap cap - That's the entire point of them. So, waiting for the outer part/front part of the snap cap to break is not the thing to do.

Jeeze, at $3 each, is it really worth it for a recreational shooter to spend that kind of money to practice? I know it's a personal decision; I'm not sure I want to spend that kind of money when it could go into ammo instead. I'm guessing I might be lucky to get 100 or so trigger presses per cap after seeing the condition after 30 presses.

U can buy a pack of 6 for $13 or so, depending on where ya shop.

Geeze, don't cheap out after spending all that cash on the gun :p

I would say that after 100, it's probably done.

You're right. Maybe I'll squeeze off 100 or so a week if I can't make it to the range that week.
