he Gunners Mates always said that keeping rounds in the clip weakens the spring

That advice above is false. They have found 1911 mags loaded since WW2 and they functioned fine even after being compressed for 40 years.

Now as long as the 1911 has a 5 or 6 lb trigger you simply keep it at home chamber empty (one of the few times I feel that is a good way to keep it as if you have time to run to your gun in the house you have time to rack the slide.)
