    i dry fire all mine all the time. So far i've had no ill effects. I dont see how it could be any worse than firing it with ammo in it.

    Yep, dry firing is fine for anything. I don't care to do it to my O/U, but I'll do it with anything other than my rimfires.

    The guy at the gun store told me it's fine to dry fire a glock, I have those dry fire dummy rounds with the spring in them for my other guns.

    The small possibility of damaging the firing pin assembly, which is even more reduced by the use of snap caps, is outweighed by the benefits of trigger control practice gained by dry firing.

    this is for the m16-a2 assault rifle but i'm sure you can apply it for the pistol....


    breathing control.
    trigger control.
    sighting in.
    natural point of aim.


    now you can say you've been taught the marine corps marksmanship!!! :)
