The worst thing you can do is let the slide slam forward without a loaded mag in the gun to act as a shock buffer. Slamming it home completely empty will beat up your sear.

I have 1911 and 2011 with probably 1000 dry fires or more.

can't hurt and it might help ... everyone says "Oh, you can't hurt a (pick one) by snapping it." and we always figured if it was a floating firing pin that it was OK ... then I was lying on my back snapping my Python, just breaking in the action, and heard something tap the ceiling, then felt it land on my chest ... guess ... the tip off my firing pin ... glad it was just a target pistol and not one I was depending on for carry
