I have a PT145 Pro, 3rd Gen that I have dry fired on several occasions without the benefit of snap caps. I recently found out that Taurus says dry firing is bad for the weapon. I think this should have stood out more in the manual as it is common for people to dry fire. Being an owner of GLOCKS and SIGs, I ass-u-med that the Taurus would be on the same quality level. Even after all the dry firing, it has performed flawlessly. I have since ordered some snap caps, however. Is this a real issue of potential harm to the weapn or just a general statement Taurus puts in the manual? It would seem to me that the PT145 Pro is durable enough to dry fire.
