why would you NOT clean and lube per the instructions in the box?

It does not say to remove the copper.

I always patch the bore to make sure it is clear and then shoot them.

For the new guy, go through the interactive video link and learn the Glock system, read the Glock manual on maintenance . This will prepare you for a fun day at the range and proper cleaning/handling.

I put 1 drop on each side of the frame rail and around the barrel out of the box, run it hard and clean it really good afterwards including the copper lube. I relube the same and put it in the holster. JMO though.

Lube? what's that?

Actually, few drops of oil on the recommended points, shoot then don't clean it for a year, or 1000 rounds, whichever comes first.

I'm a maverick, and I hate to clean guns.
