When you dry fire a semi-automatic handgun, the slide locks back. And this is a problem because? Because it’s not what happens when you’re really using your gun. Unless you’re out of ammo, obvs. Is it a PITA? Maybe. Is it worth running the risk of a negligent discharge to insert a magazine that lets you dry-fire without having to rack the slide.
I would’ve thought the manslaughter created by cops shooting shotguns who thought the guns were loaded with less lethal ammo would have put paid to that idea. But I guess not.
