No, there is nothing wrong with dry firing your Spyder. There is really no difference between there being a paintball in the chamber and there being no paintball in the chamber.

Nope its perfectly fine, wont screw up your gun, jsut remember to oil it and not to leave it out in the sun. to oil it just put 3-4 drops of paintball oil into the asa, screw the tank on and dry fire 20 times.

paintball markers arent like real guns where firing them with out bullets will damage them. if there is a paintball or isnt it wont make any differance because the bolt still does the exact same thing as it would if there was a paintball in it. it will just be louder than usual when u dry fire it

ya dry firing without a tank doesn't do anything bad to your gun. Paintballs work different then real guns.

My friends tippman bolt broke, it cracked right in half. I do know that he likes to cock it back and fire it without air. Not sure why he does this .
