I've heard it said that the magazine spring will weaken from continuous loading and unloading, and also if you keep the magazine fully loaded for months at a time. I used to keep a spare magazine loaded in the drawer for a year or more before deciding to shoot them and reload again. I've never had the problem and just curious if anyone has?

Sgb has it right, it's the process of up & down that wears a spring. Being compressed, even for long periods, doesn't do anything to it, it's designed for that.

Spring fatigue has been covered here many times.

Do a search and you should find more definitive answers?
