This might seem ignorant but can a Hi Point be dry fired without damaging it.?! I know some guns are more capable than others on that subject.
Thanks

My personal preference is to NOT dry fire a weapon, even if mfg or experts say there is no harm.
In lieu of snap caps, you can just take a spent round with the primer case removed and jam a piece of pencil eraser in that void.

occasional dry firing of the weapon will not harm it in most cases... I would not sit around and watch tv and dry fire the weapon though.

First off, I would certainly rely on the experience and professional opinions of those who know more than I do, which pretty much means anyone other than me. But as far as dry firing a Hi Point, I've had several of them, and all of them got abused in front of the TV thousands of times. None ever suffered any damage that I could detect, but that doesn't mean it didn't stress something to the point of causing an early failure of a firing pin or something.

I've dry fired all my guns, with the exception being 22 RF's, I never dry fire a RF weapon of any sort.

Thanks. That was my feeling but some say to dry fire to check trigger control. Maybe the very occasional would be OK.
I appreciate the responses.
