Life is too short to rely on cheap mags.

I am amazed at how someone will spend over $1000 on a 1911 and then buy cheap mags for it.

Default Full mags or not

If I have several mags loaded in my range bag I take out 1 or 2 cartridges. If it is my back up mag for my current gun I keep it fully loaded.

No kidding, Rick.

The same ones who spend thousands on a high end tactical rifle with Eurpoean glass on it, and then shoot generic factory ammo.

Not sure how long they can be loaded. I used some loaded mags for my 1911 last Tuesday. They worked fine and I reloaded them three times on the range and they are loaded now. But these mags have been sitting on the shelf, fully loaded for over a year.

I have some Glock mags that have been loaded since 2003 when I moved into this house. Have shot some of them lately but got about 15 more still loaded. Might be a few years before I shoot them since I stopped shooting any of my Glocks months ago.
