Does it damage my Ultra Crimson Carry II to dry fire it a lot?
But when money may be tight...I don't know why but every time I price something now I look at it in rounds of ammo. one of these targets and laser cartridges is about a thousand rounds of 9mm.

How has your target and laser cartridge held up for you? Read some rough reviews on it?
That's true but what do you have after you shoot those 1000 rounds of 9mm?
I recently added a .380 training cartridge to my setup and would guess I have about 8000 shots fired between the .45 and .380 without having to pay range fees, driving to the range or cleaning my guns.
I never dry fire at the range. I never think about it. Great idea! I saw this drill tonight right before IDry firing is not bad for modern center fire guns but it is great for improving your accuracy. My last range trip, I started doing about 5 or 6 dry fires before inserting each magazine and I believe it helps steady me up and helps me get into that groove where it feels good. It also promotes a focus on mechanics since you aren't focused on whether your last shot was a good one or a bad one, etc. You also break the muscle memory cycle of expecting and anticipating the bang every time.

Most people do not. I do quite a bit. Not allowed to holster draw at my most frequented range but I like practicing drawing straight out from my chest and get on target as fast as I can.
