    Spare Mag Negligence

    Just a friendly reminder. Hopefully you are already on top of it, but I regularly wipe down my EDC as anyone who carries knows just carrying gets all kinds of dust and whatever on the weapon. But I have NOT been doing the same with my spare mag. Just pulled it out and Whoa!!!! (see pic), would hate to insert that mag in a bad moment and it be the cause of some kind of failure. Anyways just putting it out there. Be safe.

    Some mags seem to naturally attract more crap than others. My Kahr and Kimber mags (and ammo) always looked like the lint trap, my Glocks, not so much.

    In my brommeland mag pouch. I always wear an undershirt as well so its never touching bare skin. None the less, it still got nasty. I was shocked. I will definitely pay more attention.

    Interesting you said that- the metal housing maybe attracts more? But your right and that is my Kahr mag

    Yup, fuzz off the undershirt and the cover garment conspire.

    You must learn not to store your spare mag in your belly button.

    Also, take the mags apart on a regular basis and check for rust on the spring. I had not done that after I had been in a real humid environment and so about 4 days later I went and checked and I had rust on all of my springs. It was a fun pain cleaning it off. I found that it worked best to soak them in Hoppes #9 and then take a steel brush to them. I don't want to have to go through that again, so I don't wait so long after being in a wet environment. I open them up and just lightly wipe with a little gun oil on a rag.

    If one can store it there, then I think lint in their mag is not the main problem they have.
