    Sort of like rechargeable NiCad batteries? The first time they should be totally drained before re-charged? How much does metal "remember" actually? Does it remember yesterday? Does it recollect to the times of it's childhood? When it was first born from the fire and formed?

    I keep seven mod 22 mags fully loaded in my battle bag, in my squad trunk, year round. We shoot our duty ammo up once a year and get new rounds. NEVER had a single problem.

    Glock mags

    Never had an issue with my Glock mags. I've had three loaded up for a year in my kit bag and didn't notice any weakness in them and they functioned just fine. The only mags I did have problems with were the Government M-16 mags that are about 30 years old. Replaced the springs and checked the lips and some were fine the others were trashed for the P-Mags.

    have more time to post now......

    I have my G30 original 10 round mag loaded 24-7/365 except when shooting it at the range
    I shoot it at least once a month.....usually 300 rounds, I use the original 10 round mag as well as some other 13 round G21 mags as spares. So they get some loading/unloading and shooting.
    When I'm done shooting I clean 'em up and load the 200 gr Gold Dots back in them.
    I've had this G30 in 2005 and have no issues with the mags after using them as stated above.
