Gas spring as bow shooting practice tool

I keep my bow in our living room all the time. So I like to pick it up a lot and just draw it without arrow in it. I know. I must be stupid to do it but this is how I train my grip. Probably I will keep doing it till I dry fire one day. But anyway I was thinking if it's possible to take the gas spring and screw it in place of an arrow rest so I can draw the bow back with gas spring rod hooked to the string and then just shoot? I will adjust the gas spring so it will put enough pressure on the string as arrow will. Do you guys think this will be safe?

Just put a target in the corner and put an arrow in the bow. Then shoot it...drawing the bow isn't practice. Without feedback, you may be training bad habits into your draw and grip anyway thus making your 'practice' the exact opposite of helpful.
