magzines loaded or unloaded

I would like an opinion as to whether to leave the spare Glock magazines loaded when not in use.

If left loaded does it effect the life of the magazine?

I suggest you look at the description of this sub forum.
You will be getting a lot of comments from people who think they are funny.

I get Linux Journal and it comes loaded with blow in cards and it really annoys me so I would say unloaded would be best.
Guns and Ammo does that too now that I think of it and they do talk about Glocks so there you go.

Load them up. Unloaded they are useless. I have left magazines fully loaded for years at a time. Never a issue.

I have been told to keep the spare magazines loaded minus one round. I wonder what Gunwebsite would recommend?

1) I've just got to ask; how is it that people so frequently and consistently post totally off-topic threads here in Tech Talk?

2) Rifle mags I keep downloaded by 2, pistol mags fully loaded.
