Do any Mil-Pro owners incororate dry fire practice with their pistols? I have always dry fired my glocks and never had any trouble, but the manual that came with my PT145 says "No dry firing". However, the manual seems kind of generic and appears to encompass several models of guns.

My impression has always been that dry firing with modern centerfire weapons is okay, but I am kinda hesitant with this one. Of course I could get some snap caps for it, but I was wondering if you guys thought it would be neccesary to do so.

Get a snap cap for it and you should be fine. With the resetting trigger of the DAO, you don't have to rack the slide either.

Silhanek has the right idea. Snap caps will allow you not to worry about damaging the gun. I never dry fire without a cap in the chamber. Some pistols can be dry fired but why take the chance? One would have to remember each one and whether or not it can be fired that way. No worth the trouble. Paying a gunsmith for doing something foolish and having my defense pistol away for a long time just doesn't cut it.
