Just purchased a Kimber Pro Carry 1911 style .45 (very nice shooting gun by-the-way). Does anybody know if dry firing is will damage this gun?

I have the Kimber Custom 2 1911, the owners manual states not to ride the hammer down to just snap it. They state that thumbing it down will cause excessive wear between the hammer and trigger. I would look threw your Operational Manual and I bet it might say.

(page 20 para 5 under heading Unloading) "Pull the trigger allowing the hammer to free fall forward on the empty chamber. Do Not "ease" the hammer down by holding or blocking it. Doing so can mar the sear tip which will result in a substandard trigger pull."

Most modern pistols and rifles can be safely dry-fired.
