I recently purchased my first gun (S&W Bodyguard 38) and I've heard dry firing it is good to smooth trigger action. Is this true? Does dry firing do any harm? Just want to take care of the gun that my family relies on for protection.

Thanks!

I have never heard anything bad about dry firing , except from the Ca Doj who says every time you pull a trigger a unicorn and an infant die .

could it possibly wear the firing pin spring down by the pin over extending after repeated dry firing?

Yes its fine. I've dry fired my Ruger GP100 at least 5,000-10,000 times.. no issues thus far.

It's a Smith!

The trigger on EVERY Smith revolver I have ever held/shot/dry-fired in either SA or DA have been smooth as butter!

If its an older one (arbitrary date pre-2000), the trigger should be even better.

Dry fire away to learn the balance and grip of the weapon.
