Periodic clean and inspection of them shows no fractures, "peening' or signs of hardening. Maybe I'm just lucky, but it's working for me.

Just don't accidentally insert a live round in the chamber.
I'll stick to my red snap caps.

Cz says have at it. I've got two 452s that get dry fired daily with empty chambers. The older of the two is probably getting close to 100,000 dry fire cycles and the firing pin looks great, as well as the breach face.

I just got a 455 tacticool a while back and am wondering if that's the case with a cz.
Dry firing ANY weapon can break the firing pin, and/or ding the chamber if you do not use snap caps, DESIGNED to dry fire that particular caliber.

Over the past 40+ years I have seen several rifles and handguns with broken firing pins that could not be explained any other way, and I have seen several, probably 6 or 7, rimfires with chambers dinged from the firing pin so badly that you could NOT chamber a round.

just do NOT do it!
