Do you guys use snap caps for your P guns? Mop head type or brass or ...? Or just leave gun cocked?

I use snap caps to relax the springs in all models, mx8 or 12. Easy way to dry fire and relieve the spring tension. I prefer the mop type by shooters choice or Briley, but I live in a very dry climate so picking up moisture is no issue.

I have left all my guns cocked for many years, including my Perazzi’s, with no issues.

I use them when I have them handy but not needed from what I’ve been told.
