I don't think inserting a "snap-cap" in this process will be well received.
My personal dry fire practice drills would be cumbersome with "snap-caps."
I would also like to hear a technical explanation why dry fire with a Glock, other than for disassembly, should be with "snap-caps."
Why is it cumbersome with snap caps? You only need to move the slide back enough to re-engage the trigger. Do you let the snap cap fly out of the gun everytime?
