Whether a dry fire is damaging to a gun all depends on how that gun is designed. Glocks seem to tolerate dry firing pretty well compared to some others, which makes sense since the design of a Glock requires that you have to dry fire it to remove the slide. There are some guns that I wouldn't dry fire even once, but I couldn't count all the times I've dry fired my Glock, and after detail stripping the slide many times I see no evidence of any damage at all.
