    Oh Hi Oh
    I got a used Para Carry (C6.45 LDA) and it has no user's manual. I have a replacement manual on the way but in the mean time, is there anyone out there with this gun who can tell me if the manual states whether or not it's OK to dry-fire the gun?

    Also, anyone experience frequent blows to the head with spent brass from the C6.45? The gun is dead-on accurate but, ouch, my forehead!

    Thanks,

    Funyet

    you can dry fire it...

    as for the brass in the head, i'd start by replacing the recoil spring...
    from there i'd look at the extractor...

    Check out www.gunsprings.com , I had the same problem with a compact .45, and a heavier spring made it go away....

    I don't remember the manual saying anything negative about dry firing, or I wouldn't do it with my C6.45

    It seems to start throwing brass at your head the more worn the main recoil spring gets. The manual suggests changing it very often, (I think it was like every 1000 rounds). I have a replacement spring from Brownells, but haven't gone back out with it.
