Newer shooter here. To stage my home defense firearms, I typically have at least one or two magazines loaded. With ammo being very pricey, I have not been hitting the range as much and I am stingy with my defensive ammo, so sometimes the ammo stays in the magazine for a prolonged period of time (several weeks or more).
Any thoughts on whether or not I am wearing out the springs? I don’t have many magazines for my home defense pistol. Should I rotate what I use for staging?
Thanks in advance
