I just bought the Ruger LCP II 22lr today and was trying to figure out how to dry fire. The owners manual states that the firearm can be dry fired as long as the magazine is in but I can’t get the trigger to engage after I rack the slide. Anyone have a problem trying to dry fire?

I don't own and haven't handled an LCP II, but if the owners manual states that "dry firing is OK", it may require that the magazine be removed, then the slide drawn back to cock the hammer and then the magazine re-installed to be able to dry fire the pistol. Have you tried that?
I do have one suggestion though. Just to be safe I would load a snap cap or #4-6 dry wall anchor in the chamber, if only to cushion the strike from the firing pin. If you already haven't tried that, and then do, let us know how that works for you. I was sorta hoping an LCP II .22 rimfire caliber owner would chime in with actual experience with their pistol.
