Unhappy Currently Freaking Out

So, I finally was able to take my new Pro Carry II Two-Tone to the range today. I shot a box of ammo through it, and was going to clean it when I got home. Well, when I brought it out to clean it, my roommate wanted to hold it, so I let him and supervised. Afterwards, I sat down and stripped the gun. I left the room for a second to get my cleaning kit when I hear a pretty loud "click." I ran back in the room, and found my roommate holding the frame with the hammer forward. He had picked it up and accidentally dry fired it without the slide on. I finished cleaning the gun and reassembled it. I knew that dry firing without the slide is detrimental, especially on a 1911 with an aluminum slide, so I cycled and dry fired it a couple times to make sure everything was in working order, which it seemed to be. But I'm still freaking out scared that there may be some damage as a result. Any help? Thank y'all.

These Kimbers are rugged and top quality, I wouldn't worry at all. Like all warnings, it's a don't do that but they must figure in mistakes. I would seriously worry about the roommate messing with a firearm. Expensive and very dangerous. What else would they get into.

There did not seem to be any cracks on the hammer or frame. However, the frame did have a very tiny dent where the hammer fell. But, I don't know if this was here before it happened.

I wouldn't have a second thought about it. And now you've gotten past that first little ding that we all worry about but it's bound to happen. Again these guns are tough and well made, shoot the snot out of it and just enjoy it. Good luck from Ohio John

PS: Use it to pistol whip your roommate for touching it unsupervised.
Make sure he understands that's a big no no!

That's a good idea, unless it's a day dreaming girl.
Time to kept it under the owners pillow.

I wouldn't worry about it your gun should be fine. I'd worry more about your roommate playing with it. If you don't have a safe to keep the gun in use the cable/lock that came with the gun.

I was given this safe 2 years ago for Christmas, I keep it under the seat of my truck for those times when I have to enter a building where guns aren't allowed. Something like this should work perfect for you.

I know this will be redundant with the other advice here, but your biggest problem isn't your Kimber's condition....it's the fact you have a room mate that has no regard for handling guns without permission/supervision. I can see the possibility of a terrible accident in the future if you don't secure that weapon when it is out of your sight/control. I have to go along with Chuck and his suggestion to acquire a pistol safe and USE IT. Lastly....have you thought about a new roommate?

One of my many pet peeves in this world is somebody else touching my gun without asking me first. That's a big No-No and I am anal about it.
