I have 1911 mags that stayed fully loaded for over 15 YEARS without issue. And they work fine. They are quality mags, Wilson or McCormack.

Busted myth.

I leave mine loaded. These are in safes ready for quick access. I do not want to have to load the mags if I need them quickly. No issues in 15 years.

Just did my yearly LEOSA qual today and someone brought this up. Typical of most people who think they know, but they didn't want to hear that cycling the mags weaken springs, not leaving them loaded.
