I've got two mags for my Taurus, both of which are fully loaded at the moment (12 rounds).. they've been that way for a little over a month. Is it better to load/unload them on a certain cycle, keep them loaded, keep them unloaded, what? I've heard 11ty billion different tales. EDIT: It's worth noting that I bought this a month ago, hence the mags staying loaded.. I played with them a ton when I first got them to make it easier to load (12 rounds on a stiff spring is a pain in the fingers and ass).. now both mags sit, full, ready to go.
