I was reading a manual on a Ruger. They said to store it with the firing pin released. How do ya'll release it without hitting the chamber face? Thought of a few ideas but wanted to hear from some of ya'll.

My manual says the rugers (or at least my mk3) has a firing pin stop to prevent damage to the chamber when you dry fire it. To break them down you have to dry fire the gun.

On a semi-auto, pull the bolt back slightly, hold it, and squeeze the trigger. On a bolt action, raise the bolt about half way, hold it, and squeeze the trigger. You want the bolt just clear of the mouth of the chamber when the firing pin drops.
