dry firing and mag changes

Hello gentlemen, hope everyone is having a good weekend. Couple of questions, does it hurt the Mini-14 to dry fire it? Also regarding mag changes, it seems to me that I need to hold the mag release down with one hand while I remove the mag with the other. I have tried to do both with one hand but the mag does not come free. In a tactical class this would be somewhat slow. Does anyone else have any recommendations? Maybe my catch is just too tight.

Thanks for the advice. I am using all ruger 20 and 30 rd mags. They all drop free if i just hold the the mag release down and let them fall. If I try to remove them by pressing the mag release while holding the mag with the same hand to facilitate removing the mag without letting it free fall to the ground, they will not remove. This is the strangest thing. I am sure I am doing something wrong but what. When I press the mag release with my thumb while holding the mag it will release and pivit forward but I cannot withdraw it. If I use both hands and hold the mag release down the entire time, the mag will pivit forward and then I can remove it. Is this normal?
does anyone else have any suggestions?
