    I just did a search on "dry-fire" which yielded a whole page of stuff you might read.

    I believe the manual says its OK (If I'm wrong this thread wil lbe quickly followed up with a correction)

    But, whether it's OK or not, I always use snap caps anyway. You can learn a lot of trigger control cheaply this way.

    Are .380 snap caps as hard to find as .380 ammo? I have 9 mm snap caps but no .380's.

    This has got to be the most ubiquitous question on this forum.

    I reviewed a letter directly from Ruger: dry-firing the LCP is fine. Using snap caps is a pain in the arse with having to manually eject/recock the pistol each time.

    The FAQ page on the Ruger website answers this. "All Ruger pistols can be dry fired without damage." in answer to "Can I dry fire my Ruger P-Series and .22 pistols?"
