Hello! I’m a proud owner of a 9mm Ruger American Pistol compact that I use as my daily carry. I often ask this question to see what others think. Ruger says that we must alternate ammunition between magazines to give springs a rest. However, there are many that say springs wear out due to constant use through continuous compression and de-compression. What are your thoughts? Should we alternate magazines periodically or is it ok to keep our magazines loaded?
