Okay, you don't need to dry fire it, but it is good to take pressure off the firing pin and spring. To do this without dry firing, simply:
1) open the bot and verify it is unloaded
2) push the bolt so that is fully forward
3) finally, hold the trigger down as you push the bolt down into the locked position
