I was hoping that those of you with a lot of experience with striker fired handguns can answer this. I have a Ruger SR9C, and carry with 1 in the chamber, as well as leaving it in this condition by my bedside in case the need should arise. Anyhow, this got me thinking that being kept locked and loaded all the time basically, can't be good long term for the springs. Is this something I should be concerned about? I haven't really had any time to go to the range lately, so it hasn't been fired, just stays locked and loaded as I mentioned.
