Jerry Kuhnhausen, who pretty much wrote the 1911A1 gunsmith bible, makes it perfectly clear: "Never dry fire a gun on an empty chamber no matter who says its OK." If there's one guy that knows how to baby these pistols, it is he.

Now - with that being said - I wouldn't own a centerfire that I couldn't dry fire without fear of breakage. I've come to realize what an important component the act of dry firing really is (especially in trying to improve my weak hand shot). Also, and I don't want to give the impression that I'm proud of it, but I don't use a snap cap or empty casing; and I dry fire a lot.

However, if I ever break a firing pin or any other related part, please trust me to eat a bunch of crow because I WILL post it here.
