Does keeping the magazine for a semi-auto pistol loaded harm it? I`ve read so many opinions,both pro and con, that my head hurts. It`s like listening to a Ford versus Chevy argument. Do any of you have the definitive answer ? Currently,I keep my mags empty unless I`m carrying one of my semis and I keep a revolver or two loaded around the house along with the odd scattergun. I would really like an answer that comes from someone with expertise in this area. I have several mags for each handgun and I rotate them every couple of months.Your input will be greatly appreciated. Hubadub.
