How often do you clean your gun after you shoot it - range time...
I clean a gun after each session... No matter if I fired 1 round or 500.
Everytime I shoot I do a cleaning, maybe not an OCD clean but I clean it where its clean and ready to go in case I need it.
I clean mine way too much. They probably will wear out from cleaning long before they do from shooting. I enjoy handling them. It's a fetish that I don't even try to resist anymore.
I'm in the OCD club as well.
Call me silly, I enjoy cleaning weapons. Just part of the fun if you ask me. Mine is ALWAYS clean. I never "dirty" carry after a "range day" for a list of reasons.
In my opinion, the more you clean your carry weapon, the more you know about it and that is a GOOD thing.
Be careful everyone.
Every time I shoot.
Cleaning after every shooting session. Take them all out of the safe and wipe them down once a month.
I field strip, clean the barrel, and brush everything off with a dry toothbrush that I can get to, and lube the rails, connector, and maybe the top of the barrel (with slide locked back) just about every time I shoot it, and definetly every time I shoot it for my nightstand gun
+ 1 . Sj 40
My carry G23,when the dust bunnies get bad or it gets covered in mud.
Every time I shoot it no matter how many rounds I run threw it and every 3 months or so is a good practice.
Every time I shoot it and if it gets any lint, then again. I shoot my carry much more than the others.
Every 500 rounds or so.
For me it depends on the gun. My glock 27 is what I usually carry and I clean it about every time I shoot. My glock 34, 35 and 20 usually shoot paper and steel and prally get cleaned every 1000 rounds (also have never had a malfunction). My glock 22 open class gun and all my other guns get cleaned after every shooting session.
Before it is ever fired, after every range session, every 90 days any pistol that has not been fired gets a good wipe down and oiled, any time it gets really wet, dirty, or muddy such as when riding a 4 wheeler.
The guy who sol me my 19 said he has a gen 4 17 that has over 8k rounds through it and he has never cleaned it. My wife's coworker said we boyfriend cleans his guns at the range before he shoots a different one. 2 different ends of the spectrum. I usually clean it every trip to the range. I generally put 100 rounds through it per trip
Like others, I clean after every outing. Wipe down and clean barrel every time. A bit more thorough after a 100 rounds or more. Detailed strip every 8 months or so unless gun gets unusually dirty for whatever reason.
I DO check lube every so often because it does evaporate.
This. And I field strip almost daily because I like playing with my gun
