I have to say, one night I "unloaded " one to clean it, and actually thought about dry firing it, and told myself NO >>> EVEN IF I KNEW it was UNLOADED, don't do it. Then I cycled the slide to open it .... out came a bullet. Duh, I hadn't cleared the chamber .... just as he said.
Since then, I have never ever ever thought about dry firing anything unless I purposely put in a RED snap cap and check it 5 times first, and even then it's pointed at something that will stop a bullet if it were there, and not my body or anything else it could do harm.
Finger "OFF" the trigger, pointed a safe direction. Right guys .
