Default Loaded Magazine

Will it cause the spring in the magazine to wear and not function correctly after a while of leaving it loaded for a long period of time? In other words when you store your glocks do you leave the magazines loaded? Or do you load and unload every time you carry it?

Nope. You'll cause lots more wear on the springs by loading & unloading...
