34 Law Enforcement Technology January 2016 FIREARMS TACTICS • Magazines should never be oiled. Magazine springs are generally formed using wire that doesn't really lose it's spring, even after years of being under tension. However, some users believe that the magazine springs should either "rest" or be "exercised". This entails removing all of the cartridges from the magazine periodically. There's no reason to be superstitious about it. Every officer should release the spring tension from their magazines periodically by shooting their duty rounds on a regular basis. In the wake of ambushes of law enforcement officers nationwide, not just by the media, rotating duty rounds for training is a good idea. Final note: Keep your maga- zines healthy and they will take care of you. ■ The D&H followers are top quality and run smoothly, even when dirty.
