    Question about my defense ammo and clip.

    God this is going to sound stupid. Should I have any reason to not leave both my clips full of ammo? The spring in the clip will not go bad being pressed down for days and weeks on hand? Just curious thanks

    It will not. Read a bit of metallurgy - about springs.

    the spring can go bad but the time for this to happen is well beyond the useful life of the gun

    It's also a short piece of metal wire bent into a shape used to hold sheets of paper together!

    The left is a magazine. The right is a clip.

    Actually, the item on the RIGHT appears to be a "CHARGER". While they are sometimes referred to as "stripper clips", they are not "clips" in the "magazine versus clip" context.

    Chargers are used to hold rounds so that they can be "stripped" into the Magazine but they do not enter the weapon

    A "Clip" in the context of "Magazine versus Clip" is a piece which holds the ammunition and is inserted into the magazine or magazine well. The clip must be in the magazine or magazine well in order for the weapon to function and feed the ammunition.

    You have been schooled.

    CLIP
    A device for holding a group of cartridges. Semantic wars have been fought over the word, with some insisting it is not a synonym for "detachable magazine." For 80 years, however, it has been so used by manufacturers and the military. There is no argument that it can also mean a separate device for holding and transferring a group of cartridges to a fixed or detachable magazine or as a device inserted with cartridges into the mechanism of a firearm becoming, in effect, part of that mechanism.
