With hicaps its not as much of an issue as real/lo/mid caps as theres no spring to compress unless wound up (as has been mentioned). But its still a good idea to keep the mag empty in case you or someone else loads the magazine into your AEG and goes to fire assuming its an empty mag and have to deal with an accidental discharge that could cause injury or property damage. Just a good habit to get into.
My trust is in whiskey, in weed and in Slayer, its GODDAMN ELECTRIC
