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
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.
