    just recently got an LCP for cc. is it okay to dry fire this gun or will it cause some issues down the road?

    Best that I can remember, in the manual, Ruger doesn't discourage it. In fact, I think it's suggested to dry fire after cleaning to assure functionality is ok! Of course excessiveness in most anything can be a bad thing. Snap Caps are widely used for those apposed to dry firing. Regardless, it's a good idea to practice "draw and fire" frequently either with or without Snap Caps which ever way you think is best!! Like many Firearm topics this will be split and debated forever! Personally, I don't see a problem with occasionally practicing "draw and fire" with an empty gun!!

    You mentioned that this is going to be a carry firearm. If this is something you may end up betting your life on, I wouldn't risk it. Snap caps aren't that expensive.

    Don't worry about it. If you're concerned, just get a snap cap.

    +1 on snap caps.


    Although I don't see harm in occasionally doing it sans snap caps. Just don't do it with a .22.

    +2 on the snap caps. My "Idiot" friend (Sadly, one of many who have passed through my life not being worthy of my friendship) "Fritz" decided he was going to play cowboy with his brother's 22 and did internal damage.

    Though rimfire firearms are different that center fire and there is a serious risk of damage with a rimfire. Some center fire firearms recommend a snap cap in their manuals many don't mention it. But then again they aren't that expensive so get a pack of snap caps.
