Ok so Ive looked and searched, I even read the manual but theres little information. Ive never dry fired my 500s to relive the firing pin spring for storage. What is the proper way of storing these things or does it even matter? Im not trying to start a debate, this might be a non issue. The reason I ask is some shotguns in my safe will sit for years without being fired. One on my wall has been there at least 3 years and hasn't been fired, I know that there not drop safe so lately Ive stored my HD gun on an empty chamber in "cruiser ready". from the little information I collected reliving the firing pin for storage is a method taught in the good ol days (when I wasn't even born) and not taught now.
