    I recently bought my first Sig. I was struck by how simple the manual is compared to other handgun manuals (USA) I've seen. It must be that there are fewer lawyers per capita in Germany than there are in the USA.

    There is no reference in the manual to dry firing. Any harm in dry firing a Sig P232?

    Should be no problem.

    To make you feel better about it, go get some snap caps.

    Then there is no chance of harming the firing pin.

    Dryfire away. I think dryfiring is great training that can be done daily. And, dryfiring will over time smooth the trigger pull.

    To your heart's content. I do believe in snapcaps (cheap insurance), but that's just me. Enjoy

    Although all modern firearms can be dry fired, I go th cheap insurance route and use an A-Zoom snap cap. $4 and no worries ;)

    SIG says it's okay:

    QUOTE:
    Can I dry fire a gun?
    All SIGARMS pistols can be dry fired as is, with the exception of the Hammerli Trailside, which requires the provided dry fire plug (needed to prevent damage to the firing pin).

    Should I use a snap cap to dry fire my pistol?
    You can dry fire any SIGARMS weapon (except the Trailside). It's OK to use a snap cap if you're going to do extended dry firing.

    I have been dryfiring mine for three years and it still works just fine.
    As a note, avoid Olympic ammo with the SIG. Mine misfires about half of the time with that ammo. It works superbly with everything else, so I got no complaints.
