I'll be experimenting on my next range trip with a 1911 mag that's been loaded for 11 years.

I loaded it as a back up and placed it in moms nightstand drawer at that time. We moved her for Spokane to Vancouver WA last month and guess what. Same mag still loaded, right where I left it.

Should be interesting.

I've gotta say this has been one of the most personally gratifying and informative threads I've read here yet....

I used to have this debate with my brother all the time about spring compression, him saying not to leave them loaded too long, and it not quite making sense to me. So, him being the older brother, and knowing vastly more knowledgy things than me, I have bought multiple magazines for each of my weapons and rotate the loaded magazine out about once a month in each pistol wherever I have it stashed around the house.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that up until now, all my firearm knowledge and skills have come from family (big family of shooters) as well as personal experience (and mistakes). I would never have imagined how nice it would be to have a resource of like minded enthusiasts to pool info with.

Alright, that's my sappy post for the month, let's hug it out and get back to shootin' stuff...

I have a novak 8- round blued steel mag with plastic base plate for my 1911, it has been loaded with 8-rounds since i bought the pistol. I bought it in 04'. It feeds rounds and functions perfectly, the spring feels brand new
