Just wondering if people on here keep all their extra magazines loaded? If so Max? Half? I only currently own 8 good magazines and was just wondering if I leave them loaded if it would weaken the string or something over time... What do you with your magazines????

The only time your magazines should be unloaded is just after you emptied them through your shooter.

It is a good idea to only load up 28 rounds in a 30 round mag, if....uh....you only have 28 rounds handy.

I hear ya, but I've never really had a problem with full mags. They just require a very firm smack to lock 'em in.

Huh, all I do it slide the mag in, and then give it a push with my thumb to lock it in.
