    hey guys. I'm not sure if this qualifies as a "dry fire" or not, but is sure seems close to me. In that situation I keep a diget in the way to buffer the hammer. Hurts me a bit, but not the gun.
    Have fun, be safe.

    I think the issue with the dry fire is the abuse the firing pin gets. SInce the slide is off, I don't see a real problem. Of course...I've been wrong before :D
