RussT, I'm surprised you had that problem with the 539 magazines, I have a 39-2 that I really like shooting, and I've never had any problems loading the mags by hand, I have 5 or 6 mags for it. I expect they are the same magazine. That's why the Shield surprised me, it's the first time I came across any that were that hard to load.

These were not original S&W mags, but three I got from Midway as extras to aid in the range time for my CCW quals.  They now reside in my desk drawer (unloaded) as backup for the two originals,

Only for my carry guns-2 spares for the Shield, and one for the LCP. The Smith 39, and the .45 aren't carry guns for me, they don't stay loaded.

I have loaded magazines for my Colt 1911 G'ovt, My Browning HiPower, my Kahr K-9 and Ruger SR9c, The Ruger is my EDC, but in the colder months I might strap on the 1911 or HiPower. The Kahr is going to be my Son once he gets his pistol permit.

Evening all.

Eventful day in Billings today. Not really. Went to breakfast with my girlfriend and then to work. Had to call the police on a guy stalking a 13 year old girl. Hopefully that comes to an end.  I had my 32, but it was one time I wish I had a 9mm.

On the matter of guns and magazines, I keep one spare magazine for my Beretta loaded. I only have 1 for the 32, and that lives in the gun.

Thanks for participating in the un official poll... I keep loaded magazines available for the ones I am not carrying also. Even a few AR mags. I Don?t loaded the 60 round Pmag or the drum mag. Those were mis spent purchases between 2008 and 2016.



Coffee is up.

 We were blessed with some rain last evening and again this morning.

Well probably have to feed the goats some hay this morning. They don?t like getting wet.

Even a few AR mags. I Don?t loaded the 60 round Pmag or the drum mag.

I don't keep any loaded AR mags, since I've still only got half an AR, I'm in no hurry to load mags. Be plenty of time for that whenever I finally get an upper.

I received the Maglula UPLULA loader I ordered Sunday for Amazon?

The Maglula UPLULA loader is the BOMB !  works a champ ?.
solved the stiff Sig Mags- loading all 12 round in about 18 seconds.
and no issue inserting in the mag well either ( like I had with the MakerShot loader and could only load 11 rounds  )

I hope I never need mine but don?t want to get caught with my pants down.

Major that?s some fast service there - good to hear a good product.  I know Dillion sells them also

I never worried about leaving the magazines loaded, My uncle gave me a box of various ammo that was his father in laws and along with the ammo was a 1911 military magazine with the loop on the bottom fully loaded with military ammo dated 1918, I replaced it with some white box ball I had to test the magazine and it went through the 7 rounds with out so much as a hick up. Worked great.

That's cause the old story is a wives tale.  If springs set that easy you'd want to jack up your car and block it when not in use so the springs didn't set.

Sometimes logic solves the problem.😉

Yes Sir... and other considerations like FTF & stove piping etc. , these are why I chose my J Frame(s) for so long.
No BANG ? squeeze again !

 
BTW I'll add, I have a captured Beretta (with capture papers) , that had a spare Mag. loaded with 5 rounds  1 dared 1937 and 4 dated 6-42
Captured in 1945 the Mag was secured in the Holsters pouch since 1945 . It fed fine with new ammo, I have saved the WW2 vintage.

I tend to not have loose loaded mags ? comes from when having children around & a loaded gun locked in a safe.
Now as the young'n'  is off the range , only the carry is loaded

Glen i carry a SP 101 most of the time with a speed loader. I also leave a loaded revolver where Suzanne or I can get to if needed.
It was a a magazine question- mostly busting the spring issue that the Major2 spelled out.


Coffee is ready and water on the boil.


Nice soaking rains the last 36 hours or so. We needed it badly. It was very dry here. Having a good soaker right at this moment.

"SHE" has a loaded S&W J frame 3" in her night table ... I keep a Mod 36  2" J frame

I use the J frame on occasion as CCW but the Sig has similar weight,  outside dims with twice the capacity  it makes good argument to carry

PE at one time I thought i?d Like to do a build. Prices have dropped on many models now...saving a few bucks in one is not a issue. This is not to rule out a better weapon though.

Morning all.

I have my grandfather's M1carbine magazine that he brought home from Tokyo in 1947. The ammo inside i dated at 1945.

I like my self loaders for defense because I've trained with them, and 99% of the problems I can expect to run into are solveable by tap-rack-bang.  My girlfriend doesn't have the hand strength or training I do, so I want to get her a 22mag j frame for exactly the reason the Major brought up. It goes click when it's supposed to go bang, you just pull the trigger again.

Of course, there's the tactics argument and all that, but we're a cowboy shooting forum, not Quantico. ::)

Also, I have a dozen or so loaded AR mags in my truck, but no AR to use them in. That part of the equation is over in Butte right now.
