    dry firing Ruger SR9 without magazine

    I dry fired the gun without the magazine probably 5 times before I realized you are not supposed to do this as you may damage the magazine disconnect or striker (stupid, didn't read the manual fully). Have not been to the range since, did I damage anything? How many times can you dry fire it without the magazine without causing damage? 5 times, 50 times? The manual does not say. Probably should get back out and put some rounds through it before I trust it fully to see if there is damage. Thanks for the help.

    I doubt 5 dry fire strikes will damage anything, but 5000 probably will.

    Your SR9 should be fine. Just don't make a habit of it, unless you like replacing strikers. I have a couple of Ruger striker pistols (SR9c and SR40), and I have occasionally dry-fired without the magazine installed.
