What is the harm in dry firing? The Ruger site under FAQ's says all Ruger semi autos may be dry fired. Am I missing something?
Bottom line.. It looks like you don't have to use protection. I will still practice safe dry-firing by using snap caps.Question: Can I dry fire my Ruger P-Series and .22 pistols?
Answer: Yes. All Ruger pistols can be dry fired without damage, and dry firing can be useful to familiarize the owner with the firearm. However, be sure any firearm is completely unloaded before dry firing!
You are exactly right. http://www.kel-tec-cnc.com/images/downloads/p3atv2manual.pdfpicketeer said:At the risk of sounding ugly, I will ask this question.........Does not the Kel-Tec P-3AT manual say no to dry firing? And if so, if this Ruger is so much like the Kel-Tec, wonder why it is okay for it and not the Kel-Tec?
That said.. There are design changes in the LCP. Whether these changes affect the ability to be dry fired is, so far, not discernible.Kel-TEK P-3AT Manual said:Do not dry fire your P-3AT. As with any gun, dry
firing should be avoided.
I dry fire my EDC handguns 4 to 6 times a week for about 1/2 hour to practice trigger control. These skills decay exponentially with time, so frequent dry-firing is required for me to keep up my ability.offcamber said:I am not worried I will hurt the LCP for the few times it gets dry fired. Obviously Ruger agrees...
