    I have carry and range mags. I shoot my carry mags once in a while to refresh the ammo.

    I mentioned earlier re using my cheapie Eagle mags - well - they are kept for ''down and dirty'' - but sure enough, carry mags do indeed get range use - just not so likely to be dropped and stomped

    I have a couple of 10rd glock mags that I use only for range. They get dropped and generally abused. I use my carry mags at the range also, but try to be just a little more careful with them. Any that have a ftf get kicked to range only. So far, just the 2 tens and one 13 are marked range use.

    Personally...I don't separate mags for range and carry. I do maintain spare magazines that I don't use or keep loaded with ammo, and rotate those out with my carry mags every six months or so. If a mag has a problem, but works OK for range work, I'll mark the bottom of it, and that mag just stays in the range bag.
    Stay Safe...and always check your six!

    Hey, I use all of my mags for everything, and if they get dropped in the dirt I pop them apart during the cleaning session to make sure there is no sand or other debris inside. Occasionally I dry wipe them out and shoot a very small shot of that Remington Dri Lube aerosol stuff inside.

    Never had a problem with either Glock or Beretta mags following this regimen.

    For the past two weeks I've been carrying a revolver, so have none of those things to think about. I do, however, absolutely hate cleaning a revolver following a range outing....

    I have three mags designated for each carry gun I have. And I have the mags per gun for range time.

    For my 1911's carry mags I use Wilson Combat, and cheapies and factory mags.

    I only shoot out the carry mags when I change my carry ammo.

    I never use my carry mags for range use.
    Same for me.
