any reason to unload a pistol before locking it up?
just looking for opinions. the reason i ask is i'm kinda leery of leaving a loaded gun not in my direct control. yes it is in a combination safe (touch pad type) but i just don't like to do it. on the other hand loading it takes time, granted not much (it's a semi auto) but if i'm gonna need it i'd like to have it ready quick like. also i've read that repeted cycling of ammo can be damaging to the round. like i said, just looking for opinions.
