Use common sense. Of course you'll have to dry fire it when you break it down. What this is all about is a continual dry firing for practice.

Have dry fired my Glocks thousands of times. Have heard of but never seen
in person the breech face break out problem. Did snap the tip off of a
aftermarket lightened steel striker once. The company promptly replaced
it, and no problems since.

I was told I should NOT dry fire my Ruger GP100. I bought snap caps and fire it with the snap caps in when practicing at home with my gun.

Modern, centerfire handguns can be dry fired without problem.

Ask any competition shooter if they dry fire their handguns and they will tell you "thousands and thousands of times".

There's got to be more to this story. What model? How old? What kind of rounds fired through it? And last but not least, better close-up please.

This might Glock belong to a friend of my shooting partner. He had a 34 that this happened to at a local match. Upon inspection there was some concern that the breech face was too thin on this particular pistol, and it was being sent back to Glock for evaluation.

Still waiting for results to come back.

it is okay and will not harm the striker (Glockese for firing pin). The flinching is normal. MOST if not everybody who shoots a Glock for the first time will pull down and to the left (for right handed shooters). learn the trigger sitting in the recliner with an empty gun. Once you learn the stage of the trigger where it is cocked and will fire without full travel forward you will get better target results.
