I need your guys opinions/past experience on this subject. I leave my gun loaded with one in the chamber in my car and my bedside at night. I just need to know if leavin the gun loaded with the striker cocked for extended periods can harm the gun in any way? i've heard of it weakening the striker, but not sure about the factuality of that statement. also does leaving the mags loaded for extended periods harm them? weakening the springs etc.? any help and advice will be greatly appreciated!
