    I leave mine for months at a time.

    I go to the range just about every weekend, so mine get unloaded by default, but I would have no problem in keeping them loaded for extended periods of time.

    Same here, except I don't get to the range near that often. I have had some mags loaded 6-7 months, but that is an exception. Does not seem to affect them.

    Since I only have a couple of mags at the moment for my current edc, I unload them at least once or twice a month for when I practice with the edc. Good carry ammo is too expensive for that much practice. Even then, every six months or so I shoot off the SD rounds in my carry gun, so this isn't much of an issue.
     
  5. no one has needed shooting yet so they have not been unloaded.
