When I was a kid, I'd dry-fire my old man's Mossberg 500 just to see how fast I could work the action. The gun is now tucked in the back of my safe, because it tends to fire when I don't expect it to, likely because of the dry-firing. I've also heard of firing pins being broken by dry-fires, mainly with O/U and SxS guns.
I tend to err on the side of caution, and have snap caps in almost all of my guns anymore. Seems a pretty cheap way to help protect my investment.
