Difference between snap caps and dummy rounds. Snap Caps may not feed reliably, but dummy rounds are designed to assess function, and will feed, while obviously NOT going bang.

Without any live fire required, balance an empty case on the front of the slide and practice *squeezing* the trigger, not pulling it. Do it until the case doesn't even wobble. Do it until you are about to go mental, then do it a lot more. Make a proper trigger squeeze part of your muscle memory then when live fire comes around it's already ingrained in you.

Dry fire with a laser will show any bad technique in a hurry.
