Brad, this is plain as day for this particular pistol, right in bold red letters where it says "caution" and the sentence before. Did you read this? This however is not an issue with the ppq. Dry firing a ruger sr without a magazine inserted can damage parts, unless of course you remove the magazine disconnect safety.


Never enough guns or ammo

Ok fair enough. I did miss that actually. But in order to dry fire that gun with a mag disconnect safety and no magazine, wouldn't you be required to break the safety?

Not exactly. In this particular series of firearms the magazine disconnect is nothing more than a spring activated U shaped piece of metal that rides above the striker assembly. The striker goes between the U shaped piece of metal and there is a small spring that's between that piece and the top of the inside of the slide. Once the magazine is inserted it makes contact with the U shaped piece of metal and presses it up, out of the way of the striker. This is the only gun I've had that has a magazine disconnect safety and I imagine this is probably one of the simplest. While I don't recommend taking things out of firearms that add to its safety, this has nothing to with the trigger and any other safety but the magazine. I have no need for it as no other gun I have even owned had one so it's gone. This disconnect safety is nothing more than an obstruction that gets moved out the way once a magazine is inserted. If you have a damaged magazine where it makes contact with the disconnect this can also cause a fail to disengage it.

Haha while we're at it, should we go ahead and also turn this into a caliber discussion?

No need. Everybody knows .40 is the best. Lol.

Besides this has been much more productive than a caliber discussion.

I love mine and have been carrying it pretty much ever since I got it in late December.
