What I want to do is keep a clip loaded for home protection. Has anyone had any problems with keeping a clip loaded for extended periods of time??

For example; spring weakening, rounds sticking etc.....??

Thanks

Magazines were out w/ use. Leaving them loaded will NOT damage the magazine, or weaken the internal parts.

Did you mean magazine?



A clip feeds a magazine.


Springs wear out with usage. After you've reloaded your mags thousands of times, then you can start to worry about it.

Blah blah blah freaking blah.

I keep my "clip" loaded for my .45 all the time. I shoot USPSA once a month and then unload the hollow points and shoot WWB. None of my "clips" have ever failed me.

I get so pissed at all the guys who LOVE to correct people. You obviously know what the guy meant because you responded, and then took the time to post a picture explaining the difference between the two.

Dude don't take it personally here. XDTalk is great and so are all the guys on here. But they love to nitpick on the clip/mag issue.

Welcome to XDTalk and sorry that you had to be hit with the anal-retentive "clip" issue before you were even welcomed to the site.

Just because I am feeling a little ornery ... just make sure that "clip" is filled with 45 ACP ... anything less is .... more fodder for an argument! :twisted:

should I put these round things in this long thing that has numbers on the back? It is a chrome color with a little black thing that seems to push down like a spring, I think you call it a bullet holder?

Give it a rest people, We need to be banding together right now.

I don't think anyone is being "picky" about the clip mag subject. Why is education and communication a bad thing? If a noob is shopping online and buys a bunch of "clips" he's going to learn an expensive lesson when they won't fit in his weapon.

Relax all you internet "policemen" of the internet "policemen" eh?
