AND I have to call BS on a previously posted statement:

Taurus specifically recommends against dry firing their revolvers.

CAN I DRY FIRE MY TAURUS?

Yes, except for the .22 caliber pistols which includes models 94 and 941.

.22 caliber revolvers such as models 94 and 941 also should not be dry fired.

AFAIK no .22 revolver of any brand should be dry fired.
Taurus' revolver manual specifically recommends against it.

My experience was that dry firing my old (late 80s vintage) model 66 eventually mashed the firing pin spring into uselessness.
