This is the first time I've heard about drying firing is a problem with the HP firearms...
Jungle George is right, The only safety consideration is a round going off, it will not damage the firearm. Dry firing is not recomended on any firearm especially with no weapons experience, and is usually stated in any manual at some point, There is no dry firing "problem" and it will not "dry fire" while cycling rounds. Also no one in their right minds would recomend random people to dry fire their weapons in the air, and it is not necessary unless you just completely broke down the firearm.
Both My hi-point handguns and carbines have last round holds on them, not shure if they made one without it, but if they did mn_doggie it wouldnt hurt the firearm
