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.

Any time your "use" something it's bad for the gun. So for the sake of argument, just breathing is "bad" for your lungs. That being said, it's a $350 gun...does it really matter? You're not clicking away at your Ed Brown or anything.
I actually got a much better deal than $350. ;D As someone who depends on the reliability of a weapon everyday, it does matter. I don't think anyone would want to put more wear and tear on something that wasn't necessary, especially if it is a tool that may be called upon to save your life. There is a difference between breathing and smoking.
