Default Bodyguard 380 -- Dry firing??

Just purchased a new BG 380. Wanted to practice get use to the long trigger pull and was wondering if it safe to dry fire..or do you need snap caps?

Thanks for the input!

Everything that I have read states that dry firing without snap caps is perfectly fine.

Most state a thousand dry fires or more are required to help with the factory trigger pull.

Might be OK without one, but I would use a snap cap.

I picked up some A-zoom snap caps for mine, just in case. Snap caps are cheap insurance.
