    For my G30, I loaded the mags full and left them that way for a couple fo days. Now I can fill them by hand, but the thumbs DO get sore after a few reloads. It's much easier using the loading tool.

    Leaving the mags full will NOT harm the springs.

    Never had a problem with the mags not dropping out. Sounds like somethings not right there; a full mag is pretty heavy and should fall right out.

    It's new huh? Get out and shoot it if you have not yet. Don't just sit it in the safe and think it will break itself in. 500-1000 rds and that thing will sing a very different tune.

    Just part of the design. Cramming the very last round they can into the design.
