I have a Ruger P345 and is my first automatic. I bought it in December and love it! Since I am a newbie with autos, I have a question.
It came with 2 magazines and, since then, I've purchased 3 more. Before I go to the range, I will take it the night before and load all of them with rounds so I don't use too much time when I get to the range (he gives you an hour for $10). I had someone at the range see that my mags were all loaded and he asked me when I had loaded them and when I had done it. I told him the night before, that would place it about 12 hours before, and he told me that I should never leave a magazine fully loaded up for more than a day because that would wear the spring out very quickly and would lead to a jam. He advised to put no more than a couple of rounds in a mag to leave in each one for readiness.
Okay, what do you guys suggest and have you ever had a problem with jamups or misload because of premature wear and fatigue due to the compression of the spring?
