ok this question might be totally crazy but here:
i am overly anal and cautious about spring wearing out from anything to buffer springs, shotgun shell tube springs, mag springs, etc. normally when my SR9 is at rest, the firing pin is cocked even though it's unchambered because it cocks the last time I fire it or pulling the slide back after cleaning it will put the pin back in the cocked position.
if I dry fire it (which i do after cleaning to make sure all parts are properly together), it drops the pin and stays dropped. which position is most relaxing for the springs inside? when the pin is dropped, does that mean the firing pin spring is relaxed? does this cause more pressure on the trigger springs because the trigger is then locked back?
i know, i'm crazy
