Can a SAA clone be damaged from spinning?

...aside from dropping it on the floor. I recently purchased a Beretta Stampede (4-3/4") and am practicing my gun spinning technique. I've become pretty good at it. I know enough not to fan it. But it occurred to me that the trigger mechanism obviously takes some torque during spinning. Am I screwing up my gun?

No but I would make sure the hammer was all the way down and not in the safety notch. That would put a lot of unnecessary strain on the trigger nose (sear engagement).
