I used to dry fire quite a bit, and never ran into a problem of bad habit development. I have never tried to rack the slide during a string of fire.

As Frank has noted, your range time should easily "overwrite" most dry-fire errors, largely because your errors should manifest themselves on target.

The one danger I have heard about dry-firing that I believe has merit is that it can erode the habit of always believing one's firearm is loaded and treating it that way. That isn't the sort of error you want to discover at the range.
