I'm a newbie. I recently purchased a p3at. I have'nt shot it yet because of time and obligations. This Wedensday, November 3rd, gonna take it out in the desert for its inaugural shoot and will use American Eagle 95gr FMJ for target/break in etc. After reading other threads, I'm gonna get some other brands as well. I have been raised on the belife that you never dry shoot a gun and I never intentionally have. Maybe I'm living in the dark ages, but I never heard of Snap Caps until recently. Yesterday I picked up a pack of 5 for $16.99+ tax. Seemed rather pri$ey to me. I got them to test the trigger pull....and later drawing. Has anybody tried/used Snap Caps made by Lyman Products of Middletown, CT?
