    The dry fire issue came about because some guns either stick the firing pin ,or break it. AMT had this problem in some of their guns(breaking firing pin ) it is more often poor quality steal or fit and finish. Some have been known to stick forward so when the slide closes there is a AD. This is where snap caps come in.

    This sounds familiar. This is the only time I will let the slide drop on an empty chamber with force. One time I left the take down lever down and the slide nearly fell off the front. :)

    I wouldn't worry about it with your own gun. However, -following proper ettiquette- you probably should be more careful with a gun you don't own (especially a brand new floor model that you haven't paid for yet).
