I currently have the subject pistol and no where in the book that came with it does it say anything about dry firing. I know you are not supposed to dry fire most pistols, but mine has the manual safety that releases the hammer when it is put on safe and it doesn't hurt the firing pin because it never makes contact. This is not true from what I understand and the firing pin is contacted if the trigger is pulled to release the hammer while dry firing. I am going to invest in some Snap Caps, but just wondered if I really need them. Any suggestions?
