Just wanted to see how many leave their mags loaded all the time. I've read both sides to the argument and to me....leaving them in there seems to be just fine. Loading and unloading sounds like it'd be more wear on the springs over time.

I have a habit of leaving mine loaded for looooong periods at a time.

Always keep them 1/2 full for storage. Less pressure on the spring , ready if you need them quickly and easy to fill when you want them for the range or whatever.

Depends on what it is. Here in the great state of CT you can no longer transport mags with more than 10 rounds in them, so I now make a habit of making sure everything is unloaded when I leave for the range and then load them there. I don't want to end up meeting bubba because I miscounted and put an 11th round in one of them.

I leave at least one mag for each of my guns loaded all the time. I rotate the mags the first of every month. Since i carry daily I also rotate the chambered round every month and put the one I'm taking out of the chamber into a random spot in the mag.

x 2. I've used Glock and AR mags that were fully loaded for years and never had an issue.

I'm sure it's not the best thing for them but I have never had a problem or heard of it till now.
I do always try not to camber the same bullet twice.

Always keep them loaded. Only time I unload them is when I hit the range.
