Any harm in dry firing an older (1992) Model 689?
I've got an older, 1992, Model 689.
My understanding is that when the trigger is pulled, the hammer falls, strikes a transfer bar which moves forward and hits the firing pin.
Is this correct?
If it is correct, can damage result from dry firing this kind of set-up on the Model 689?
In their manuals, Taurus advises against dry firing it's revolvers. Why?
Except for their rimfire revolvers, both Ruger and S&W say dry firing their revolvers is okay.
I wonder why dry firing is okay with the Ruger and S&W revolvers but not Taurus revolvers.
