Magazines

I have always said to myself that an empty magazine is just that Empty, but have been wondering if the spring could be comprimised if loaded for extended periods of time I, as well as probably every other person here have loaded ones that they may not use, but have for just in case situations. Should these stay loaded or empty while not in use???

Thanks,

I think keeping them loaded won out. Should be able to find it in the Gun Threads.
EDIT: Heres the Link, hope it answers your questions http://www.gunslot.com/forum/leaving-mags-loaded

loaded and a couple of spares to switch out with. Nice to see someone from pensacola on I take that you go to the Santa Rosa range.

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
