I use acorn blanks to get my pups used to gunfire. I prefer them since they are the quietest .22 blank.

I also use them on my older dogs since I prefer not to have a super loud blank after I have conditioned a young dog to gunfire.

Labrador. Gets the alpha pistol pretty dirty each time of use; less than 50 acorns used. But the level of sound is what I was looking for. A little tough to load in cold weather, even with gloves on would be one downside.

They work well, even in my 22 mag revolver for multiple shots over a new pup. Take your time though, don't make your new dog gun shy.

Competes. The product is good and does what it is suppose to do. It does produce a sound above that of primer only rounds, and not quite that of a .22 caliber live round.

I purchased these blanks for an antique clip fed blank gun. Due to the blanks not having some type of sealing compound at the crimp, a single blank fire ignited all six rounds together in the gun. Was loud but made a mess of the gun. These would probably be fine in a revolver.

    Restricted shipping. ONLY available in US48 via UPS Ground.

    Not compatible with 209 Primer Pistols. Not recommended for use in theatrical productions or indoors.


    Not recommended for Track and Field or starting other sporting events. It is our understanding that only Black Powder Blanks should be used for these events.

    The Precise Crimps are the smallest and the quietest of the .22 blanks that we sell. This crimped blank is sometimes referred to as an "acorn" blank because they look like small acorns. They are a smokeless or "clean" blank and will not require that you clean your blank pistol as often as a black powder blank. 100 per can.

    These blanks are the best choice for introducing young dogs to gunfire. -- Steve

    NOTE: When using these blanks with the Alfa or Viper pistol, there is the potential for the pistol to jam if the cylinder is advanced when the pistol is not pointing down.

    Use and/or possession of Blank Pistols (Starter Pistols) and Blanks is prohibited and/or restricted in some jurisdictions. Laws change frequently. Therefore, all buyers should check with local authorities prior to ordering pistols and/or blanks.
