I like to keep my Springfield Trophy match loaded in my nightstand. But a "friend" of mine was arguing with me that I shouldn't keep it cocked and locked...something about wearing the springs out keeping it cocked. (Sounds like Bull**** to me) I have always kept it fully loaded with a Wilson 8 rounder, 1 in the pipe, hammer cocked, safety on.... What do you guys do? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
