    Got Questions about the proposed NFA Rule Changes? We'll have answers. The show can be streamed live from KSEVRadio.com or catch us locally, 5pm-7pm on am 700, KSEV.

    Among other things, we'll also be talking about the latest controversy on the arrests of Open Carry Texas members by DPS.

    I appreciate the way y'all backed off the Vietnam Vet and let him call them clips (even though that drives me crazy too).


    Good show, thanks guys.

    Thanks! I could see the guys grinding their teeth in studio but, having put his ass on the line in the name of his country, the man can call them whatever the hell he wants! Didn't mean to step on him about the stretching of the magazine springs but, I started college as a mechanical engineering major and know more than a few engineers working in aerospace, oil&gas, as well as the automotive industry. The fact is, what wears out springs is the number of cycles they go through, not the act of being compressed and left at a given load for any specific amount of time. Springs do take a "set" as a result but, being worn out is a result of the work-hardening that happens as the spring cycles.

    Yes sir, sometimes you can be right but it's not worth winning the argument.

    So, you have no problem keeping your clips ;) fully loaded?

    Nope, keeping them loaded/charged shouldn't be a problem. I've seen 1911s, Tommy Guns, and even an old M1918 BAR that came out of estate sales that were stored for years with fully charged magazines and they fired every round. Having said this, I do swap out the springs in my carry magazines every quarter, when I cycle out my carry ammo. Some people do six months or a year. I use the interval I use because I carry every day, exposing springs and ammo to humidity and corrosion.
