Dry firing?

This is a discussion on Dry firing? within the SIG Sauer Pistols forums, part of the SIG Sauer Forum category; I don't worry about dry firing but do consider what Sig mentions when asked about dry firing--to include dry fire numbers with total rounds fired....

If your gun breaks during dry firing, I laugh at you, you have a bad gun.

After re-reading through this thread, I find myself disturbed on one point being made. It had been stated that;
"All centerfire guns can be dry fired as much as you want without any damage"

I would like to suggest that this is too broad a statement and is not undebatable. If you dry fire a Walther PP, PPK, PPK/S for an extended period of time, you WILL fracture the Safety/Decocking Lever at the firing pin bridge area.
I had purchased a light to moderately used Walther PP (police turn in) that had a crack in one of the two sections of steel that connect the two cylindrical bearing areas and hold / protect the firing pin strike surface. Out of curiosity, I set up the gun in a vise with guarding and fired 17 rounds before the second bridge section broke, disabling the firearm, until I replaced the Safety Lever.
I have to assume that this would also apply to other manufacture's models of this or simiar design, But without specific knowledge on them I cannot say for certain.

My Beretta 92A1 (and I assume same for other 92 or 96 pistols) states that user should NOT dry fire without a snap cap.

Ever since I started in the shooting sport and carrying, in more than 20 years, I have yet to experience a dry fire related firing pin breakage. I do dry fire and don't use snap caps..

I always use snap caps. I dry fire every day. I prefer A-zoom snap caps. On my previous gun I was told it wasn't necessary but the firing pin broke at around 10,000 rounds (and who knows how many trigger pulls with dry firing). I then started to use snap caps and never had a problem even up to 50,000 rds.
