Sig Sauer doesn't recommend it. I've done it with mine only a few times.

Yep, use a snap cap. Clips stay tight for some time. If you are having feed problems use 11 for a while.

I dry fire mine all the time (1000's of times) Only Rimfires can be damaged in dry firing. If a center fire gun can be damaged when dry firing, then there is something wrong with it. We did dryfire drills at Gunsite all the time.

Most of the time it does no real harm. Just in case a snap cap is easy to use so why not.
For hammer guns like my 229 and 1911s I learned from a smith to put a rubber earplug in the channel protecting the plunger. I tried a pencil test and became convinced it works, and is easy.

Most all guns a full mag takes more force to push home. If yours are real new just leave em full awhile. Either way they will work in some with time.

Thanks for the info i wanna dry fire it to lose the twitch at the break of the trigger i at first from reading everyone saying the p250 shoots low i was convinced it was the gun but if i bench rest the gun and fire it, the low and to the right goes away.

Go to
Am I Anticipating Recoil and/or 'Squeezing' The Trigger?
Good charts and comments on trigger problems.
Most guns shoot dead center. It's us who don't.
The smaller the gun, the less forgiving they are to bad habits.
Sub guns are best at teaching disipline.

I took my P250 apart when I bought it to check it out. Was holding the trigger assembly and dry fired to see how it worked and the damn thing fell apart on me! There's a little spring that was a bugger to find as it flew across the room. Lesson here is dont dry fire P250 when taken apart LOL!
