As far as the snap cap itself goes, I personally think they are excellent. I purchase a set for every firearm I own in order to practice loading, cycling, unloading, function checks, and clearing jams and misfires.
It's made of aluminum, and over time it will wear a bit. Nothing that will cause it to not function properly or to jam into your action, but more cosmetic than anything else. This doesn't cause it to work any less than advertised and expected.
All in all, I say it's worth it to pick them up for at least casual practice or getting familiar with a new firearm. A must have for getting familiar with your new toy. Practice practice practice and not using live ammo is safer indoors and not out in the fields.
I bought these so my mother could get familiar with her new j-frame 38 special. I told her to practice with these before I give her any live ammo.. A-zoom are my favorites and add Amazon Prime and you get more bang for the buck. One person found this helpful.
Be careful with some of the other brands of "dummy" ammo -- if they have an open primer hole then you still won't be able to dry-fire your older revolvers. These have what looks like a hard rubber plug in the primer hole or maybe the plastic is just painted a different color.
Either way, they do the trick and we can practice with the speed loaders and trigger control at home without using our ammo stock our paying a range fee. Just remember safety first. Remove all live ammo from your practice area. Double check and then check again to make sure you have no live ammo. We like to practice in front of a mirror so we can better see what we are doing.
Perfect for training with revolver. Still no damage to primer material.. Tried to use it for speed loading but have gone back to live ammunition for this purpose because of the weight difference.

I am ashamed that our society asks people to work themselves to the bone to make ends meet, and that it does not value family, in any true sense. Study after study reflects that healthy families listen to each other, play together, learn together, eat meals together. These healthy families produce healthy children, who grow up to be productive members of society.
We choose time together. Many generations of happy families have managed to spend happy time together and still provide for themselves we do it every day. My husband worked part time as a waiter and took out loans to earn his Masters. We are now slowly but surely paying back those loans out of his increased income. I feel proud of that choice. I think we can agree to disagree on the idea that paid work outside the home is the only way to support a family.
I support my family much better in my current role, in the opinion of everyone in that family. Because they pay him for his work teaching, they have the right to ask that he spend a certain number of hours on his teaching. His dissertation requires the rest of his hours.
I am not for a minute suggesting that what your family went through was in any way easier. Chris, get a job or write your own blog instead of torturing us with your useless opinion. It adds nothing to the conversation. If your personality is as equally bland as all of your comments have been, I can understand why you have no one to listen to you at this hour of the night.
Thanks for your consideration! I know that it can be done, but I simply wish for space for the idea that it might not be the best choice for every family. Judging without full knowledge of the others situation. Are there people that take advantage of the system?
There are families where both parents work, sometimes even two jobs or more each and still need the assistance. Mind you, most using assistance have tax dollars that pay for it just as everyone else.
We have no right to tell another family what to eat, how or why to eat particular items. However, I do believe that if you use illegal drugs benefits should be removed. That the receipts be evaluated, if the person us buying beer, alcohol or cigarettes, removed. Then spend cash on the rest. Once in a while, ok, but on a regular basis…if you can party literally monthly with your benefits, remove them. I always knew when I had a baby I would breastfeed him.
I struggled with it the first few weeks home and ended up using formula samples Enfamil sent me. When I priced out formula and how often they go through a can I almost had a heart attack.
So thankfully the lactation consultant at the WIC office ended up helping me perfect the art and I havnt had to give him formula since. I have nothing bad to say about programs that help the needy. And to the lady who uses snap to purchase the healthiest choices possible for your child, I commend you.
I live in an area where people trade food purchased with benefits for drugs, alcohol and money. They drink all day and walk around our grass area in their pajamas yelling to each other like complete morons with the foulest language in front of their children that are other times playing in the street unsupervised. I leave for work at 7am they are outside sitting around.
I come home around 6…they are still there. Cigarette in one hand beer in the other. However, there are people like you who have respectable priorities. Thank you for feeding your baby the healthiest way you possibly can. Congratulations on finding help to do that work. Formula IS crazy expensive, and the one thing that I like about WIC is that, when there are good lactation consultants available to moms like you, their policy of supplementing, but not entirely paying for, formula takes the pressure off mom and baby while you learn.
I totally understand choosing not to use it, too, because it is so much work to get in and stay in! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I noticed you seemed miffed because someone forgot to add your son. Just want to know why would you have another child if youcanncannot oops afford to feed them? I usually delete these. How do I know? We were comfortably above the poverty line when we chose to have a child, and losing my income after I was already pregnant is what put us below that line.
I pray for you, and others who not only think, but actually express, such horrific thoughts. I pray that you find some love and kindness in your heart.
I was on 2 forms of birth control just to be sure. I had my second child. When asking about having a tubal, I was told that due to scar tissue from an emergency appendectomy years ago, I did not qualify. In fact, the doctor was surprised I conceived at all.
He told me to enjoy my special baby, and not to count on another one. I instead decided that 2 kids was very hard work and really did not want to count on scar tissue to prevent conception. I signed up for the shot and also used a different spermicide. Nine months later, I was taking another pregnancy test. Though after that one, I was able to convince hubby that a vasectomy was a good thing.
No one makes a plan for life and adds poverty to it. Oh, wait, and no dog after that because they have a life span of years, and I foresee that in that time I will become disabled and have to go on benefits. It seems like what these people are suggesting is that you just eat your unplanned pregnancies.
I love this post and agree with everything, from your opinion about Wal-Mart and organics to the guilty feeling of using SNAP. I hope your WIC office is nice; ours was quite lovely. So many boxes of Cheerios…. Some of your comments about wic are false.
I work there for six years and wic never allows frosted flakes. Read thing wic food guide.. Sugary cereals are not allowed. The supermarket you are shopping at fooled you intto thinking thats a WIC item the frosted flakes and its not. Alot of times the store gives you want they want you to have and not whats really offered on wic.
And thats why I tell my clients to report the store so they can be fined. I agree the wic needs to updated alot of things on there program such as offering fresh fruits and vegetables to infants but alot of times that participants are not reading the food guide properly.
I guess this is another example of people treating you like an idiot because the brochure and what they think are different. I am a military spouse and have been separated from my husband for 2 years because I have been unable to find a job that makes anything close to what I make now.
We just recently had a baby and the benefits could really help our financial situation allowing us to live together as a family. Thank you for simplifying the process. It really helps a newbie like me. For anyone who did have a nasty comment to make I would just ignore them. I remind myself that my husband sacrifices his life for all Americans, even those that he disagrees with, and that is an example of Christ in my opinion. You are so right. Turn the other cheek, right? So many prayers for your family.
Persistence is the key to getting through this process. We are dealing with the same sort of thing in our family as my partner is pregnant. The two programs are completely separate, and you can be on both at the same time. This is, in fact, encouraged!
Thank you for this piece. At the check out line I was told that I the only get brand that I could get was Sara Lee Classic wheat a pretty uninspiring loaf if you are unfamiliar. Juice was a similar issue. I am not a fan of grape or apple since they always taste cloyingly sweet to me; so there goes a good chunk of my options.
Same problem with meeting the vitamin C requirements while also avoiding blends. Then, to make it even better, after scanning probably 20 non-frozen oj options, I realized all of them were 59 oz, not 64 oz containers. That and the fact that I tried extremely hard to follow the guide and still failed. I have to say that one of things I find most frustrating as I research WIC and SNAP is the number of people who complain about struggling to feed their families and not qualifying for aid and then attack people who are aid recipients.
Thank you for leaving this comment, today. Not an awesome way to start my morning, that. I, too, am most confused by comparisons between lives, as though my prioritizing organic and discomfort with all the sugar in juice has anything to do with anything that anyone else eats.
Sarah, I absolutely applaud your words. You should be able to get anything in a package, with a barcode on it already. I came across your page here while searching for an ingredients label for the one and only approved loaf of bread available with WIC coupons where I shop, Sara Lee classic whole wheat- nasty stuff. Six dollars a month total for all fruits and veggies, for instance. I noticed that no one seems to have mentioned the deadbeat dads who so often force us into seeking assistance.
Maybe if the powers that be took failure to pay support seriously, instead of ignoring the problem, more mothers could get off of assistance. Or another question for the complainers: Have they any clue how much of their tax dollars go to corporate welfare? Subsidies and tax write offs for companies that make billions in profit, pay their CEOs obscene amounts of money and outsource our jobs, leaving us to struggle here? They are angry at the wrong people. I am a single mother of two who would very much like to have a decent full time job to support my children on my own.
That would have to be some good job, to have anything left to pay rent or anything else after that bill. I literally did not know what else to do. You know who is lazy and worthless? I hold my breath literally whenever I get email that someone has commented on this post.
But seriously, the WIC recommendations are like a guide to raising kids who tend toward obesity! All the bad habits! All outdated nutrition info. Has no one funding this thing ever seen a freaking food pyramid? Hello, I was directed to this website from the comments section of an article that I was reading about income inequality….
I was raised by my father who worked two jobs and went to school at night to make sure I was taken care of…. I am not proud OF using government assistance, I am proud, in general, of my life choices not ashamed and also use government assistance. I complain about the poor in this country being left with no alternative but unhealthy choices. I do not complain about my own situation, since I am lucky enough to have so much help and also be able to raise my son, with his father, spending time as a family.
We prioritize that over earning more at minimum wage jobs. I do have three work-from-home jobs. So do lots of families who cannot make ends meet, no matter how hard they work. That is a reason for a decline in our society, if in fact there is one. I pray that you find more kindness in your heart, and a deeper tolerance for choices that are different from yours. I would like to point out few facts. I believe that man were born to protect his love ones.
I dont know you well but I just comment on my obervation. No one suffered any loss of pride. Thank you for this post. I stumbled upon it after googling info on using WIC. I recently resigned from my full time job because the stress was not healthy for my surprise twin pregnancy. I also have a 4 year old son and my husband works full time as a teacher.
We applied and found out yesterday that we were approved for Medicaid and WIC. I have a BA is education and never in my life thought I would need government assistance, but I am so grateful to know it is there for us.
I feel like we are making the best decision for our family for this season in life. Thank you for writing this one the same day that I delete a comment that called my son a horrible name. Good luck to you, and may you have a joyful pregnancy and birthing!
I just spent an hour reading your article and the comments. I consider myself a fairly sharp tongued human, but there is absolutely no way I could have handled all of the misdirected, stupid, hateful, and odd comments the way you did.
Good for you—for choosing to be a family. He needs his parents. I can only HOPE that a percentage of the dollars that my family spends on taxes help families like yours. Way to stay strong.
Thank you for this comment! I had to block an email address from commenting — the ones I delete are really beyond belief. I wish I was always able to respond with equanimity, but I think when I do, I encourage discussion. Leaving up cruel and insulting comments serves no purpose. But I do need strength to moderate comments here! That is good for you!
But your conceitedness will one day land you to choose between receiving assistance or going without the basic needs for survival. How dare anyone reprimand someone for using assistance after the government rigorously approved them to receive help. There is very little room to try to cheat the system like some might think. The point is that the US spends a ridiculous amount of money abroad and people are mad that we are spending at home to take care of our own people.
That is just ludicrous! Who cares if they choose to shop at Whole Foods?! There is hate in their hearts to think that someone should choose to abort their pregnancies because life happened and their situation changed. This article is really helpful to me. I would be able to use the beans, eggs, juice, possibly canned fish?? Would it be worth the hassle and humiliation? Hoping to scrape by without it. I feel there needs to be more sensitivity to food allergies in programs like this, especially if they are going to be so controlling.
I just completed a class that included a state-run nutrition course, and the nutritionist admitted that the reason why she has to talk so much about the benefits of milk is that her program is being funded by Big Dairy. I learned to love sardines! One of the healthiest pregnant lady foods out there. But not covered—they would direct you to tuna, and it was the less yummy kind.
We just stopped going. It was so much work for so little nutrition. You can get some gluten free cereals, the beans, rice eggs, tuna, vegetables and with a Dr. I take lactose intolerance capsules so I can eat the cheese.
I just want to say thank you for being a voice for those of use who need assistance, temporarily, in order to survive and get back on our feet. I have a college degree and a teaching certificate and find it humbling and, at times, feel ashamed, to be on SNAP. But, as an adult, we sometimes have to put away our idealized beliefs, our pride, and do whatever it takes in order to support our family.
It is just a fact of life right now. I apply for jobs everyday, of every kind, not just teaching. I love being self-sufficient. The reality is that jobs are few and far between. For the last teaching job that I applied for there had been 45 applicants for that one job. Currently, it is a tough job market and a tough economy. It is a privileged perspective indeed to say there should not be welfare of any kind. How nice for you.
But also, how sad for you, to be so wholly selfish as to not take into account the many families living below the poverty line. Thank you, Ann-Marie, for writing this blog. Maybe it will help someone feel a little less ashamed that they need some help right now.
Thanks for all this information. Some people are so judgmental. My husband and I are both well educated and he is working overtime at a poorly paying job to pay our bills after losing his position. Why should we feel guilty for accepting the help we can get when we have no choice.
SNAP, most of which have nothing to do with the content of that post. I would like to address a few […]. After I had my son in , I had a reaction to a antibiotic from my c section. It turned into an autoimmune disease. I was unable to return to work after the alloted 8 weeks. I no longer was able to receive the disability income. To my surprise I qualified. I was on it for 5 months. I asked her to remove my from the program.
I felt like I was being punished for being honest. I did pay it back sorry for my rant. In May of I broke my back at work. I was being compensated until April of this year. Sorry for ranting again BTW I love your article! So many people here who are judging people on assistance programs are not looking at the big picture.
If you make enough not to qualify for these programs, you probably have some benefits in your life that people who are low-income do not have. I enjoyed having money to spend and affording a decent car. After I lost my job and the unemployment ended, I had to apply for WIC and food stamps to afford to feed my family. My husband has two jobs and had two at the time we qualified.
The job would have to pay well enough to pay for daycare and transportation, which is makes many jobs not even worth the time. If all employees got a fair share of the profit or at least enough to live off of, CEOs could still be wealthy and taxes would not have to spend so much for the people they need to bring them their fortune to survive.
This is not possible when the least expensive place to live alone takes more than half of your take-home income. When looking into the way they calculate benefits, they seem to give some families very high amounts of benefits, which sound like much more than a normal family would need for food, while other families are disqualified because they are slightly over even though there is very little money left for food. When we got disqualified, I actually had to brainstorm the cheapest meals I could think of to figure out how to afford to eat on what little we have after bills.
I am not in a position to consider how unhealthy it is and choose to eat something better. This is where I think there needs to be changes in the food stamp system.
I am very thankful to still qualify for WIC and be able to get some food to feed my family. I honestly feel that the government should create food stamp grocery stores where they can get healthy, unprocessed foods to give to needy families and take away the enormous profit many of these grocery stores are making from all of the food stamp transactions. This would allow the to help more people and to help the poor make better choices for food than what some of them do.
I think more commentators should consider the actual cost of organic fruits and basic foods versus prepared foods that cost even more. I agree with you on the fact that more mothers should stay home while their children are young. Some jobs are too demanding on your time to be able to be an attentive parent. Too many children are growing up with problems from not getting enough attention from their parents.
It is not helping society. Our society does not even have a system in place for women recovering from childbirth to take some kind of maternity leave without losing their entire income. As for the angry commentators, I used to think like you until my financial life did not turn out as planned.
They deserve happiness and to live a fulfilling life, too. As for the cheaters, I think the DTA welfare office workers should be doing a better job looking at the overall lifestyle people are living instead of just the income levels. I do know a family who lives very well and makes such a low income that the only way they can afford to live the way they do is to conceal the rental income they are getting and collecting benefits to pay for necessities while they live the good life expensive vacations, designer clothes, expensive restaurants, big SUVs, completely renovated house with their on and off the book income.
These are the types that really are a drain on society and should be ashamed from taking from the system. People who are honestly poor and need help should not be ashamed to seek it.
Thank you for your honesty. I wish you all the best in your own struggle. Hard work and honest living are sometimes so poorly rewarded. My husband spent a long time paying a lot of money in taxes. They give you a large restrictive brochure to see and it is not at all difficult.
What is hard is 1 Actually finding something that actually comes in those sizes at all — for instance, juice is 48 oz. Here are a few tips I have found successful: It also has no price limit. So you can actually get organic beans without breaking any rules. Hold off on your peanut butter until you can find it. They are no longer manufactured, and there is not a single brand sold in grocery stores that does not include soy.
They are however still very full of pesticides and synthetic vitamins. Just grab the toxic stuff and give it away to someone. I feel I need to reply to this. When tearing apart a list of wic approved foods keep in mind there are many families out there for whom these foods are the difference between giving their kids something to eat and sending them to bed hungry.
Everyone can feel any way they want about wic foods. No one is required to sign up for it. Wic is different in different states, much of what you say will not apply to everyone. There are no gmo apples or apple juice currently on the market in the us. Yes, registers around here will deny store brand cereal if the brand name is the pictured item in the pamphlet this is because wic receives rebates from the manufacturer which brings their price down to less than the generic.
Here refrigerated goat milk is an option. Many states offer non gmo soy milk and organic tofu. Whole foods will not carry the items they would be required to carry like corn syrup based infant formulas and frosted mini wheats therefore they cannot accept the vouchers.
Some people, particularly those who cannot afford other options are ok with the basic generic eggs. Just take what you need and will use, leave what you will not use. This will help keep money in the program so those who really need it will not be turned away. So many misunderstandings and misintepretations here, but what I will say is Jane is spot on in so many ways.
WIC is a supplemental program meant to help women, infants and children in need. Also, meant to support agriculture in the US. WIC is able to be a viable program because of cost containment and offering the store brand or cheapest brand in many cases. WIC has added many more culturally sensitive foods. Food is so darned expensive along with other necessities of life.
I never realized what a complicated mess program like wic were…Since I dont have any children I never qualified…. Your blog I found quite informative and I actually feel proud of people like you who are able to navigate this complicated system and even though it annoys actually sits down to inform us. How do you make ends meet? Once again thank you so much. If you move, you have to tell the new offices immediately.
But many people never do get out. I am not eligible for SNAP because I am enrolled in nursing school, and due to the demanding hours of class and study time, I can only work about 18 hours a week so therefor I fall short of the 20 hours per week work requirement for students. I pay rent which is income based and I have no help with my monthly utilities which leaves me with no money to buy groceries! I feel as though the only way I can qualify is if I quit nursing school which is not gonna happen.
Go to the nearest office for the Department of Social Services, bring copies of everything from you last 5 pay stubs to your lease to your bills all of them, of all kinds and any other document that has anything to do with anything.
Its not something to be proud of but it would be nice if they would realize that even young people with no kids need help. They said the same thing to my wife and me. I asked the question during the appeal the truck and motorcycle I inhereited when he passed was to be sold I asked what was I to do when the little money I recieved ran out before the end of the 6 month disqualifying period.
The answer was a very quiet social worker and then she asked if she could put me on hold. The manager talked to me and overturned the decision due to transportation to and from work. I could be wrong. A love spell caster called Dr isaac of DR. I am 20 years old, I am pregnant with my first baby and I go to school and pay rent for a room. I have a decent job but ever since they found out I was pregnant, I get little to no hours at work, I thought this would help me get food stamps considering the fact that I ay for school on my own as well, but my application was denied because of the hours I work.
First of all, congratulations on your first child! My husband and I are both students. A way to get SNAP while a student is to work any number of hours in a federal work study job.
If you have federal work study, simply apply for a job working directly with your university ex. Yet, since working in a research lab through the school is funded by federal work study he is eligible for SNAP. Good luck with everything! SNAP was a lifesaver for a few months while I made it through the end of a complicated pregnancy and premature birth and my husband hunted for a decent job.
However, I just take it one day at a time with gratitude for what we have now. WIC has been wonderful. But once I figured out what I could get and how it works, it was fine. I basically get the exact same thing every month so there is no uncertainty. Coming from a middle class background, I had to make a mental shift regarding the foods I was allowed to buy — for example not being able to get free range eggs. I was poor and hungry, so I made the shift.
We went through a very tight spot recently and all those cans of beans in the pantry were suddenly surprisingly appetizing. My son is 6 months now, so we just started getting baby food as well. I am grateful for them literally every day. Go get a job!! Is Anne Marie your real name. You should be cited for welfare fraud. As a African-American mother and I chose to do something like this I would be the headliner for the evening local news!!!
I absolutely agree with you Reese. I was shocked to find this blog. I have 6 kids and a wonderful husband. Also our kids are on disability until There is nothing wrong with us. So I am not ashamed at all to get help from Uncle Sam. Stop lying to yourself, you and your entire family are nothing but bottom feeding trash! I visit day-to-day some blogs and websites to read posts, however this website presents feature based content.
Thank you for a very informative article. I was behind a woman at the grocery store and she was having a trying time figuring out what was the approved juice on WIC all the while the woman behind us was muttering and rolling her eyes. Thankfully Ms Judgmental moved to another cashier.
When the woman was finished she turned to apologize for taking so long. I wanted to hug her but told her no apology was necessary. Thank you so much for this post.
The shame I feel from using WIC checks is so awful. The constant changes are infuriating, and it seems the grocery store is almost always out of the bread we can get. SNAP is a much more dignifying, less time consuming process. I think their frustration toward WIC is due to the hassle it creates for them, which is projected on to those of us in the program.
After writing all this I really may drop out of the program. I like the helpful information you supply in your articles. Best of luck for the following! Wow, great article and a lively discussion! I came across this because we built a free app for WIC participants to address exactly the issues that are described here. WIC is restrictive in nature which results in a more complicated shopping experience.
Hopefully this helps someone out. Thank you for your article, and to the people that shared useful information instead of rants. I found this blog after attempting to find out if I could use Snap to buy freeze dried foods like egg powder and dried meats since I may end up with no roof over my head soon.
That did make me angry. I am not proud to be on food stamps.
