Loaded magazine

I leave all my extra magazines fully loaded all the time. Should I be concerned that i'm promoting an FTF or other any other issues due to the springs being constanty compacted?

Thank you!


Ok so its a "magazine" and not a "CLIP"... LOL

Leaving your magazines loaded will not hurt them at all. It actually helps the springs a little, making it easier to load. :wink:
Should'nt hurt them any I have had my XD mags loaded since I got them in April 04. I had a S&W 59 for about 21 years and always kept the mags full. Never had a FTF with it.
Old wise tale to shift the blame of a non 100% functioning gun on the magazines.
