    One of my Glock 19 stays chambered,ready but untouched. How long is it ok to just sit there in the ready condition. Any concern about springs?

    Your Glock pistol will set on the table fully loaded & chambered for an eternity. The cartridge will rot and turn to dust before any other part in the pistol wears out. There is absolutely no tension on any spring until you pull the trigger.
