Lenwood Training Plugs Let You Train Safer
If you are going to carry a firearm, you need to run dry fire exercises. This involves drawing and pulling the trigger in a safe and effective manner, with an unloaded weapon. Given the inherent potential for human error (meaning, a negligent discharge), you should take every practical safety measure you can. The Lenwood Training Plug allows you to block the chamber and barrel of your pistol, while still allowing you to cycle (cock) the firing mechanism. Then, you can dry fire the weapon with confidence, knowing no round can be chambered.
When using this or any other “safety enhancer” you should always treat the firearm as loaded. This means keeping the firearm pointed in a safe direction, being sure of your target, keeping your finger off the trigger, etc. Additionally, I’d suggest unloading your weapon in another room and leaving the ammunition there. Double and triple check that the weapon is unloaded before you field strip it to insert the training plug. Once in place, the weapon must be field stripped again to remove the plug. We made a short video to show you how it works.
