In my safe, there are a half dozen SKS tapco mags, about a dozen cz75b mags, and about ten XD45 mags; all mags are loaded one short to make me not worry about them. If the mag is in or with the pistol in the car (usually 1 + spare in holster's pocket), it is loaded to the top. The speedloaders for the GP100 are fully loaded and in a unsnapped & very handsome leather speedloader belt pouch/carrier thingy. I think i only have one mag loaded and in the cz52, but there isn't a chance of me shooting that thing inside unless i am trying to blind the room.

Not if it is Shihan's hand, not without a glove anyway.

None of my guitar cases have guitars in them, so someone else will have to provide the music.

I've read of mags being loaded anywhere from 30 to 60 years & still working fine. My wife has a Raven .25 that had been loaded for about 25 years & I decided to see how it would do. It'd been laying in a drawer, unprotected & hadn't been cleaned or lubed in that length of time. I dropped the mag & ejected the loaded round, then blew the lint & dust balls out of it & reloaded it. Shot two mag loads fine.
