Ok so I accidentally dry fired my Barnett quad400
String or cables didn't break.. Can't find any damage to the limbs
But I scared of it now.. Should I have a pro shop look at it.. And replace the cables just to be safe
Help

Take a cotton ball and slide it gently over all of the limbs (inside and out) starting at the tips and working towards the riser. If there is microscopic damage the cotton should snag and leave little bits behind.

As for the cable and cams I think I would have them looked at by a pro shop.

I would also email the company and get their advice.

I accidentally dry fired mine once, also.
Like you, I was apprehensive to shoot it afterwards.
I took it to Bass Pro in Garland and they checked it out for me for free. I felt much better after I saw him pull the limbs back on it a few times.
