counting rounds

when unsure and the 4 seconds of hell breaks out, take cover and reload (while maintaining your first ejected mag), access and call 911 if possible. Oop got carried away. Back to topic, magazine disconnect and striker comes in contact when dry firing without empty mag in place. Well I asked the question to Ruger in January when I got my SR45 for those who might decide to compete in shooting sports and the SO ask you to.....and show clear, hammer down. The reply from ruger was that’s an interesting question but, what we’re trying to do is stop the person who dry fires an hour or just long periods every day. Second question which is harder the mag disconnect or the striker, the striker is softer material and a high number of continued strikes to the mag disc. may ( will ) damage your striker.

Hmm, that's interesting. I've never bothered to look to see how my SR9c and SR40c mag disconnects work. But I guess there has to be something that's keeping the striker from contacting the round.

Not sure if I mentioned it before on this thread, but I have on others. One advantage of using snap caps to practice dry firing is that it's a pretty good way to ensure that you've not got any live rounds in the gun. Yes, theoretically, you could rack in a new round, then drop the mag, then load the mag with the snap caps. However, you should be thinking the chamber is empty and rack in a snap cap, which would eject the live round.

No matter how you do it, just make sure you're safe. I've taken to doubt and triple checking before pulling the trigger to see if there's a round in the chamber. Why? Because I have screwed up and had a live round in when I thought it was empty. Never had a ND/AD, though.

I do all my practice at the range, but then I don't do competition. So, I have to go to a certain range in order to be able to holster my handgun, draw and fire. My primary indoor (and closer) indoor range, doesn't allow holster draw and shoot.

When you remove the striker you will see where it would hit the mag disconnect

snap caps are great, simulates a primer to strike, on the SR's when a magazine is inserted it pushes up on the mag.disc. allowing striker to travel full distance and come in contact with snap cap, live round. without mag steel to steel.
shooting for sport is what we all do unless in military or law enforcement. dry firing, trigger set and site picture it's a less expensive in between range visits. and you know we all love the 10 spots on our targets at the range enjoy
