Dry shooting is basically shooting your gun without ammunition in it. Its bad, yes. But i'm not sure how really. Thats all I can say.

it's bad on some real pistols because that can break the firing pin.
On AEGs it's bad also because there's no resistance to the piston since there's no BB to push - therefore the shock is bigger in the mechbox frame.

It would still take a monstrous amount of dry firing to break it. Just don't intentionally do it all the time.

Pop cans. CD's. Or even just cut a large square whole in a box and put a blanket in the back.

Take a big-ish cardboard box. Stuff it with crumpled up bags, newspaper, rags, etc... Loose stuff, nothing hard that the BBs will bounce off of.

Put the whole thing in a big garbage bag (this helps trap stuff as the box/stuffing gets blasted).

Tape a regular sheet of standard letter paper onto it. Use marker/etc...to put dots/circles/etc... on it.

(hold an old CD on the paper and either fill the center hole with marker or a light shot of spray paint....makes perfect basement sized dots real quick)

If you think they might have spray paint they probably do.

dry shooting..... what you're doing after your vasectomy. Or firing your gun without any ammo. Either way, not a good thing.

That all depends how protected your target is doesn't it? You wouldn't want to shoot off all over an unprotected target.
