    i dont think dry firing is dangerous. i think developing bad habits and then blaming them on having dry fired is just trying to excuse yourself of the blame of having a negligent discharge.

    i think if done properly, dry firing encourages safety because when taught to dry fire properly you will learn to always check the gun before you pull the trigger, and never point it, even when unloaded, at something you're not willing to destroy. when i dry fire any gun i check to make sure its unloaded... if i set it down and pick it back up, i again check it. that is safety.

    why would i want to dry fire? well for one its fun, for 2 it helps build skill when at home. does it hurt the gun, depends on the gun in my opinion.
