1) No stupid questions, if you don't know!yoshi said:Ok, heres another for the "Stupid questions" topic.
when, where, and how often do you unload your carry piece? How often do you unload the magazine, and or swap.
Doesn't leaving bullets in the mag wear out the spring? what is the useful life of a magazine. Thanks
2) I unload my weapon once a week for cleaning off what has built up from lint from clothes, etc with a cue tip. If I didn't shoot it that week I simply do this and lube if necessary by putting a dab on each rail and letting it run down and also lube the bbl. If I did shoot it I will clean it with a simple field strip with a normal cleaning process.
3) I do not carry ammo longer than 6 months to rotate it (preference really) and leaving bullets in a mag does not wear it out, reloading and use does. The useful life of a mag varies as to the use and quality of the mag in question so that's hard to answer and I don't know what or if there is an actual answer for this. I can tell when my mag spring is not to my liking and a little to easy to load and this is when I change them. Right or wrong? I don't know this is just my way of doing it for my liking.
