According to some people posting here, we shouldn't do dry fire practice in our homes because it required us to pull the trigger. Yet every expert shooter out there says that dry fire is needed to build up and work on skills.
Agreed. I dryfire for hours each night. A lot of it is for muscle memory but some of it is to build strength in my fingers for DA/SA pistols.

There are almost zero cases of a true accidental discharge. Nearly every single one can be boiled down to gross negligence of the operator, regardless of gun design.
I 100% agree (I have a mancrush on you right now ). To me the only "accidental" discharge is a result of a mechanical failure of the firearm itself, which in most cases is a result of a poorly maintained firearm and again a fault of the owner. Any time a human is involved it's negligence, pure and simple. I've had a ND. It was a result of stupidity on my part. But because I still obeyed Rules 2 and 4 no one was hurt.

There are hammer-fired pistols that require a trigger pull to disassemble.
Though that's much more rare.
Know the status of your weapon
Keep your muzzle oriented so that no one will be hurt if the firearm discharges
Keep your finger off the trigger until you have an adequate sight picture
Maintain situational awareness
