Wrong Bike???

Ok I just got a Giant NRS 3 about a month ago... anway I like doin small drops (4 feet at the MOST) and just all around trail riding, anyway my question is did I get the wrong type bike for that? I love the way it doesn't sag when I pump up hills and handles like a hardtail in the trails and Im very happy with the bikes performace so far... just curious will I hert the bike doing stuff like that???

Totally fine. If new it's going to all loosen up, but 4 footers are prob fine.
I really know nothing of the particular bike other than the pic\specs I just saw.
If it isn't..(sell it) 'cause I do 4's on a 13-year old hardtail with NO suspension.
So that thinger in front of your back wheels is for something. You may wear the factory shocks quick, but thats kinda par-course with jumps.
