There seem to be two opposing schools of though concerning dry fire practice.

When the striker is released on an empty breech, does it suffer any more physical distress than it normally would when making contact with a brass rim?

Week-end Glockers with inquiring minds would like to know.

Your Glock was made to dry fire. You can not field strip the gun without doing so.

Dry fire your Glock as much as you can. You will develop a better, smoother, faster trigger system. Pay attention to the front sight when you practice dry firing. If the sight moves when the striker clicks off you are jerking the trigger. Start all over again and keep doing so as often as possible. When you learn to drop the striker with zero front sight movement you will have develop an accurate first shot and your trigger will be as good as it gets!
