Beretta Bobcat .22LR
 
So I am going tomorrow to shoot my dad's "Bobcat." I haven't shot this before and it being a .22 and dry firing being bad for .22's, I am worried about the inevitable dry fire shot that ensues after the last round. Is this going to ruin the gun?

well...I've had the empty magazine dry fire happen when I'm shooting my 10/22 pretty much every time I get carried away and dump the whole mag...or pretty much every time I shoot it and the firing pin hasn't broken or anything yet...It's not GOOD for the gun but I doubt it will destroy it unless you get carried away and dry fire a LOT

when you dryfire a rimfire the firing pin CAN hit the edge of the chamber and cause a small burr so that it needs to be removed so a round can chamber.

Don't do it all the time. Count your shots and know when to stop is the best thing to prevent any damage.

The dry fire after emptying the gun won't hurt it. There's not that many times it'll be dry fired that way unless you shoot a TON. It's when you intentionally dry fire for extended sessions is when you should use snap caps.

Well that gun was terrible FTF 7 times, and a casing got stuck in the barrel, I had the guy at the range look at it and he said the extractor was messed up.

In another gun related issue, I was with my friend and he brought his 40mm, I have found a new love, I am all about a 40mm now! :D

We used the 40mm M79 in Vietnam. I think you shot a .40 caliber.

There are times I wish I had a 40mm. :) Wait, shouldn't this be in the handgun forum?

ta1588 05-09-2010 08:10 PM

lol not the 40mm discussion that should be in the grenade launcher forum

LOL, 40mm is friggin massive. He did mean .40 S&W. I have a Glock 27. I love it. I have a .357 SIG barrel for it as well so i can carry either round.

Hearing and seeing 9mm and 7mm really kind of made me think every round was called that.
