This is what my wife's uncle did, not me. When it became mine I unloaded the (corroded) ammo from the mags, cleaned and oiled them. He didn't know any better. He also has a German 7.65 (possibly an Ortgies 7.65) that his dad brought back from WWII and it had a loaded mag and stored in holster. I told him that neither was wise.
