Is it really necessary to use the covers when storing Pmags loaded?

I really like the Pmags and after finding them very durable and reliable I have switched out to Pmags in all my go to gear. One in each rifle, three in my bail out bag, four in my chest rig and 12 in my PC.

Now I hear people saying that you have to keep the covers on them when storing to prevent feed lip problems. If this is true it pretty much negates using them as my primary mags.

You don't need to keep the covers on....

I would, though, since it keeps dust out, keeps your ammo shiny , and prevents damage to the feed lips if you drop the magazine.
I've dropped loaded PMags hard on the feed lips, though, with no damage.

Unless, it is in the rifle or something.... But a magazine in a rifle has the cartridge stack compressed by the BC, so you take the pressure off the feedlips anyway.

Absolutely not. I saw one of the guys from Magpul post that he throws the covers away on his mags. I toss mine in a drawer in my bench.
