If you can get them cheap. They are worth having. They are good for function tests and decrease the wear of the gun when dry firing.

They should last basically forever.

Yes. The spring-loaded kind, not the solid plastic things.

I have the azoom brand and love them. Traditions makes some that are plastic with a visible spring. The traditions do not last for ever i used them when i got my first glock. Just trying to get used to the trigger, and i actually wore them out.

I have and use snap caps for my revolver and my P238 when I practice. I'm afraid to not use them. I get mixed info on whether it's okay to dry fire or not.
