I believe the manuals for most Ruger rimfires (rifle or pistol) claim that they CAN be dryfired because of the use of some sort of blocking mechanism. I don't make a special point to dryfire them much, but I do it occasionally without worrying about it. If I ever damage one on a 10/22, replacements are less than $5.

Also, some rifles and pistols have external hammers and a safety that stops the hammer from engaging the firing pin.
