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?

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.
