I have a Sig P238. I called Sig Sauer and asked about dry firing this pistol. They said it was okay to do. I didn't see anything in the manual. Also, when I was looking at the gun at the guns shop, I asked if I could dry fire it and they said it was okay to do.

Shotguns & Kel Tec's are the only modern firearms I know of that can be damaged by dry firing. I have no idea why a Kel Tec can't be dry fired. The shoulder of the firing pin in a shotgun slams against the block/receiver when you dry fire a shotgun. It won't hurt to dry fire a shotgun in function tests. You just don't want to dry fire a shotgun a lot.
I was told to never dry fire a .22. Has that changed?
I have also heard that no rimfire should be dry fired

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington
