Why is it bad to dry fire a .22 rifle??
Yes, most modern center fire weapons can be dry fired. Yet, if I have a question about my guns, I go straight to the source. I hate to null and void my warranty. Yes, never dry fire a rim fire weapon.We've had this thread more than once. The consensus is: rim fire no, center fire ok.
World Champion Doug Koenig says he dry fires 20,000 (thousand ) times a year with his competition guns w/o snap caps. If it's ok for him , it's ok for me.
