Dry Firing Best Approach

Dry firing safely as discussed above. Perhaps more threads out there.
Thanks for all your input.

¿¿¿What's best, in terms of not damaging any gun components?
1. O ring alone
2. O ring plus snap caps.
3. Snap caps alone.
4.  Laser training cartridge alone.
5. O ring plus laser training  cartridge.

¿¿¿Is it the same #83 O-ring for the Rami, p01 and sp01?

Thank for sharing the links CZs_V8Volvos  :)

My vote:
1 then 3 or 4.

However I've done thousand dry fire 'bum" without o-rings nor snap-caps and no wear on any parts. [P-01 with CGW roll pin]

Cut a quarter inch thick piece of rubber eraser the width of the hammer, and put it in front of the firing pin.
Did you go into the forum search and look for dry firing of dry fire ?

Blaze orange foam earplug cut so it fits in the hammer channel but doesn't impede sights.

Or get a shadow/TS variant that doesn't have a firing pin block and dry fire away.  I actually use a set of dummy cartridges I built with no powder/primer that I filled the primer pocket with goop.  This let's me simulate the weight of a full magazine during dry fire.  I have them marked with red sharpie inside the case head groove for proper identification.

Cheers,
Toby

Yes I know... I was surprised not seeing any damages...
Anyway, once I've read other threads about it I've started using O-ring.

Thanks jurek.

My family enjoys using the Laser light cartridge together with the LaserLyte Trainer Target Steel Tyme with Plinking Steel Sound on our Glock 17 and 19. Reracking after each shot makes the rather enjoyable family activity tedious especially for my wife.  I'm thinking that a DA/SA pistol like the hammer striked CZ's (or the Taurus G2C/G2S/TH9 with double strike capability) will be perfect but I don't want to "hurt" my CZ's (and prefer not to buy another gun like those Tauruses)

CZs_V8Volvos,
Do not even think you hurt your CZ...
DA handgun is a perfect tool to be used with laser cartridge. I dropped SIRT pistol in favor of DA pistol. You can use it thousands times without hurting your pistol. Keep in mind, after 2 months the laser will end up with a hole in the back and you will need new one  :D (I'm already with my 3rd one).
After reading few threads about using o-ring, I've decided to start practicing with it. I'm using Danco #83, which perfectly sits on the back of slide. You can rack the slide and use the laser cartridge the same time (o-ring doesn't obstruct laser impact).
You won't find better tool for dry firing than your pistol with laser cardridge.

O-ring and oil applied to trs before each session. DA dryfire puts a lot of heat into the trs and can cause early failure.

I use o-ring and snap caps.  Just don't forget to remove the o-ring the next time you head to the range, click instead of bang is always disconcerting  ::).  Later.

The two loudest sounds are a "click" when you expect a "bang" and a "bang" when you expect a "click"

red silicone rubber o-rings are easier to spot than black o-rings

However you do it, be sure to check it occasionally.  Here's one of mine after 1000 or so rounds with a laser trainer
