whats the point of firing blanks???
Years ago, my wife and I went shooting. She was using a .22 SAA that she'd inherited from her father. She'd shoot all 8 chambers then hand it to ME
to reload. After a few times through I started thinking, "like, what the heck? Am I your water boy or something?" So I palmed in a handfull of blanks.
She cranked all 8 down range and was extremely upset that the shoot-n-see targets didn't show any hits. She handed it back to me and we went through the same routine. She got even more upset and switched to the "close" target, handing the revolver back to her trusty servant to reload. More "rounds" downrange and more frustration on her part and I just couldn't
keep a straight face any longer.
Now she loads her own and I am thoroughly convinced of the usefulness of blanks.
Peace favor your sword,
