How well do the springs hold up in the Glock mags if they are loaded for extended periods of time? Im a believer that one should be prepared for anything and I like to leave my mags fully loaded in case I ever have to grab and go. My dad always told me when I was a kid to never leave mags loaded cause the springs would compress and cause ftf's. However that was a long time ago and I know that the metal used to make the springs has come a long way. There will probably be alot of different opinions on this so to each his own, but, What do "you" do? Loaded or unloaded?

modern magazine springs will experience no issues from staying loaded, they only 'wear out' from use, i.e. loading/unloading/repeat

loaded or unloaded they are not going to wear out any faster, so I keep 'em loaded.
