    Is harmful to dry fire a S&W J frame revolver without dummy rounds?

    I've dry fired all of my handguns (including my J-frames), except for the rimfires, like it's my full time job. In 20+ years I've never had a problem because of it. But if it'll make you feel better, call S&W tomorrow morning, and they can tell you themselves.

    I'm told either way is fine. I smoothed out the trigger on my S&W 642 by dryfiring w/o snap caps.

    Snap caps in a modern centerfire S&W are as helpful and necessary as a flotation device on a trapeze artist.
