With the cost of ammo, there is a lot of talk about dry fire, some say it’s ok, some not, which one is it for a 2011 Staccato
1911s (at least quality ones) can be dry fired a lot. Mike Harries started me dry firing in the 70s for IPSC, and I still do. Worst case, you peen the area where the hammer hits, it did happen after a lot of dry firing on my series 70s. You can fix that easily or just get a new and better firing pin.On many pistols, you can insert an appropriately sized rubber O ring (as shown below on a CZ-75) so the hammer hits that instead of the firing pin, which makes the firing pin last a lot longer. (Just remember to remove the O ring before using the pistol for real).
