Keep it cocked & locked as long as you want. All of my firearms that are SA stay C&L. It won't hurt the springs. Hammer and magazine springs are compression springs and are are designed to stay in that position. I only cycle my carry ammo every six to nine months. I fire them off then replace them with new ammo. I do this to make sure my ammo has not been contaminated not because of the springs.

To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them... -- Richard Henry Lee, 1787
