First post on The High Road.:)

My question:

I picked up a Heritage Rough Rider in .22 LR/.22 Mag, and would like to do a little dry fire practice with it. These guns have a hammer block safety. Which would be the best way to dry fire?

1. Remove the cylinder and dry fire without the safety engaged.

2. Leave the cylinder in, and dry fire with the safety engaged.

Either of these would avoid peening the cylinder, but which would be less stressful to the gun?

Cut a heavy piece of leather and place in the hammer groove. Hammer won't strike the firing pin if it's frame mounted and it it's hammer mounted, place the leather so the pin doesn't hit it. BTDT in my youth.
