That is not exactly true. It has been discussed over and over and proven it is the compression/decompression of the springs that weaken them. We have seen examples of magazines that have been loaded 50+ years that still work just fine.
OP, Lugers are fairly resilient. Go shoot it and at least be able to say you did. Who knows what will happen to it after you're gone?
