Should I dry-fire before storing?
I'm still in my 10 day waiting period before I can take my new Smith M&P 9 home.
Question: Since this is a "hammerless" striker fired pistol and has no way to decock, is it a good idea to dry fire after cleaning and reassembly before I store it? I'm just wondering how much I should worry if the gun sits for a week in the cocked position. Can that weaken the firing spring?
I've only had one shooting session with my new baby and it's driving me crazy because a guy at the store/range showed me how to clean it and I'm pretty sure we put it back in it's case cocked.
Thanks for any help!
