For Dry Firing, please use Snap Caps!

I have dry fired mine many times you will probably not have a problem. The firing pin should only get a light film of rem oil with teflon and let it dry. Then use a pencil with the eraser end first in the barrel to make sure it is not locked. I have not had any of these problems. You will be fine.

If you over oiled the firing pin just get a can of gun scubber and shoot it in the firing pin chamber do this with the slide removed from the gun, gun scubber is not good for polymer lighty oil the back side of the pin with like break free just a little and you should be good to go. :) I've dry fired guns many times and have had no problems just don't dry fire a rimfire as this will damage the pin and breach of the gun. then use snap caps to ease your mind. :)

I have dry-fired my 145 plenty of times, it still runs just fine! It won't hurt it, it's not a rimfire. If the firing pin breaks, taurus will send me a new one as far as I am concerned!
Don't stress :)

The debate seems to run about 50%/50% You could probaably find an equal number of "experts" to take a stand on dry fire vs snap caps... what ever floats your boat!
