Chambered round leading to extractor spring wear?
I was curious if leaving a round chambered for an extended period of time would cause pre-mature wear on the extractor spring in a semi-auto pistol by staying in a compressed state for a long time without relief? I am asking because on my daily carry, I keep a round in the chamber and in between range trips, it can stay there for a several weeks/a month at a time. Thanks.
