I have a Ruger SRH that I have DF prob over 5,000 times and still feels the same to me...
Works everytime too...

I mostly avoid doing it at gun shows or gun shops, since the CLICK tends to make people's heads turn and I get glares, even when the gun was cleared and pointed in a safe direction.
I think Taurus has in their manual that they don't recommend dry-firing.

I called the folks at H&K about this several years ago. I was told that if the firing pin was going to break at, say, 10000 shots, it didn't matter whether it was 10000 live rounds or 10000 dry fires. The guy followed up with "I dry fire mine all the time." Of course, he probably gets cheap or free parts and service.
As far as dealers, I had one tell me that their insurance company prohibited dry firing - I don't know if that's BS or not. I can see that the dealer might not want everyone dry firing their inventory. As a customer, if I buy a new gun I want a new gun, not one that has been dry fired 10000 times.

I dry fire my centerfires all the time. Rimfires-nope. I have a P99 Walther that has the longest and weirdest single action pull I have ever felt. Dry fired it for a while before I was comfortable with it.
