    Hope this is the right fourm for this question .
    I'm training my first dog. Been looking at snap caps to introduce him to guns. Can I just take the shot out of the shell and shoot with the wad in ?
    Thanks

    Go to a pawn shop and buy the cheapest .22 revolver you can find. Now, buy .22 nail gun blanks and start your training.

    If you are hung up on using shotgun blanks, buy the blank rounds or buy a reloader and load your own. If you remove the shot from normal loads you will have some squibs.

    I'm gonna move this to the Dog Forum. Cooksey is right. Or, you can just get a starter pistol.

    22 revolver is what I was thinking off. I just thought using cutting the end off my dove loads.
    Thanks

    I use the Fiocchi blanks. The price is very good when you can simply push the used
    primer out and put another in (several times). I have a shot shell reloading station
    which makes it easy. One case (of ten) lasted for a very long time.

    Once shot, they have a darker collar so the first time around there is no confusion.

    Please introduce your pup to gunfire incrementally. Start off with helper at about 60 to 70 yards plus.Throw bumper, pup picks up fire when about half way back. Next one fire first throw bumper. No negative reaction to loud sound repeat. Next one have helper move up 10 yards. Repeat. Stop. Next day or close start at that distance repeat and then move up another 10 yards. Repeat. Then another 10 if no negative reactions. Do this over a week until helper a few feet away throwing and shooting. Always have muzzle blast away from pup.
