    Let me ask you folks this question, if you go to a gun show, a gun store, a range, or someone lets you hold a gun, do you wipe it down before giving it back? Think about it.

    That's why I always carry a handkerchief, wipe it down then give it back. I don't leave my prints on anybody else's metal if I can help it. A little trick I learned from a Vietnam Vet.
    Wow...good point...never really thought of that, but will make it a part of my shopping experience from this day forward....;)

    Keep in mind that if you are just changing out mags with the same round still left in the chamber you should be fine. HOWEVER, if your are constantly recycling/chambering/cycling that first round into the chamber, the energy from the slide will change the bullet depth/seating with possible EXPLOSIVE results.

    I guess if someone were to steal my gun and commit a crime, then at least my finger print won't be on the casing left behind.

    Well said. So I guess the answer is prudent! ;)

    Doesn't sound paranoid...if you're "handling" the rounds every 2 weeks then it certainly isn't going to hurt to wipe them down. How often do you shoot?...practice? I'd use those rounds for that if you're worried about it.
    I'll wash my hands well before loading my .223 AR Pmags for long term storage, that's about the only precaution I use.

    started a topic Paranoid or Prudent

    Paranoid or Prudent

    I have a 9 mil that I carry in my truck and transfer to the boat when we go to the lake. Since I also carry concealed I only have 1 mag in the 9.

    Every 2 weeks I change out the mag. I unload and reload the empty one. When I do this I am careful to wipe the rounds and not leave any finger prints on them.

    Does this make me paronoid or prudent? ;)
Working...
