    Two different lines of thinking on this. Perhaps it has been discussed but I didnt see a thread.

    So....

    Leave your mags loaded for long term storage or unloaded? Explain your opinion.

    In our current political climate, I'm not leaving any unloaded.

    Loaded/unloaded doesn't matter from the magazine's perspective. As far as wear goes, it's using them that wears them out, not sitting on a shelf. I prefer loaded myself. An empty magazine does no good when it is needed.

    I have an opinion on this, but wanted others input before I posted my own.

    I have a good number loaded, however I also have a larger number brand new in the wrappers. I will keep it that way for the foreseeable future. Most every gun I own that takes a one has a ample supply of new, unused magazines saved for a rainy day.
