Do you keep an empty mag in your rifles when stored in a safe, or not?  What's the point of keeping a mag in?  Keep out dust, etc?

I usually store them without a mag inserted.  I keep ammo separate from the rifle.

I don't have any empty mags--they're stored full.  Never had a magazine spring "go bad" from storage.

If you get enough dust in the action to cause problems when storing the rifle in a safe, my friend, I suggest you shoot more or get a better safe! [:)]

Thanx for the replies- I have a storage problem and just wanted to make room.  I always just kept a mag in each rifle, no reason in particular.  Anyway, I'll take 'em out and, Fatman, I'll try to get to the range more often. [:D]
