Are there any issues with dry firing a beretta 92?

I use snap caps to be on the safe side.

Great way to improve your shooting skills, so that you can "perfect practice" with live ammo.

Beretta says use a snap cap on their site and in their manuals.

Ok thanks. Guess ill pick up a pack of snapcaps. I could always use them to train for failures to fire too.

The military snaps in with the M9 (and M16 for that matter) all the time, without snap caps with no ill effect.

I dry fire mine all the time, infact I dry fire it more than i shoot it with live rounds. I normaly just leave the safety on that way the hammer ain't hitting the FP anyway. Now that I think about it, is that a good thing to do? I can;t really see how it would be bad but ya never know.......

How do you fire it with the safety on? When my safety is on, the gun drops the hammer, and will not fire until safety is off.

Dry firing of a Beretta 9x will eventually cause damage to the firing pin. The shoulder of the pin within the slide is being battered due to the fact that the tip of the pin has nothing to transfer its energy into.
This will take many many thousands if not tens of thousands of dry fires to cause. Firing pins are cheap too, the only trouble is diassembling the slide to replace it. You can tell if it is broken usually by removing the extractor claw and witnessing the firing pin.
Get a snap cap, or throw an empty shell into the chamber at the very least.
