Hi Folks! New to Conceal Carry...
Well, I've completed the process here in Durham, NC for obtaining my Conceal Carry Permit.
Day 93 and still waiting. Don't understand why. Called multiple times and receive a recorded voice to leave a message to which I have left multiple messages.
For CC, I have purchased a S&W Shield 9MM and a Raven Concealment Holster. Bought some Gold Dot ammo yesterday.
I do have a question though. I'm trying to understand the reliability of magazines. More specifically, how long can ammo stay in the magazine before one has to begin worrying about spring malfunction? At times, I may not get to the range as often as I'd like so I'm curious.
Thanks for your thoughts.
My apologies if this has been answered elsewhere.

Welcome from South Carolina...
Don't worry about how long the ammo is in the magazine...Unless you go into hibernation for years at a time, believe me, it will go bang when needed!
BUT, in my opinion, if and when you purchase additional magazines, always get mags from your gun manufacturer...i.e. Glock mags not aftermarket mags, etc..
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

I am not sure how long it will be before a magazine has a spring malfunction due to non use, but if you practice once or twice a month ( like I do ) I don't believe you will have a problem. Of cause after a couple of years you may wear the magazine out.

Hi from central FL!
The delay in getting your license is probably due to the increased number of applicants, at least here in my state it's been climbing for awhile. More people applying slows down the process.
I'd read somewhere that putting one round less than your mag holds is better for the spring, but I think that's outdated and I don't follow it. I agree with firstsgt, I wouldn't worry about it, especially with brand mags

Welcome from Arkansas! I had a good local policeman friend that went through the Glock tech classes tell me that it is good to unload every few months and let them alone for a few hours and then reload. He said that was a recommendation from the Glock techs themselves. But I agree everyone else. We are on day 25 on our wait. The office said that they had been flooded since after the election...and that we need not call until after 120 days in Arkansas...:-(
