    Is there anywhere at JAX to clean guns indoors, or would it have to be done at one of the outdoor safety pits (where its cold and windy)?

    Excuse me for asking, but why would you want to clean your guns at the match?

    Wife won't let me clean them in the house, and it's kind of cold to be sitting outside at night cleaning guns. I ended up doing a quick cleaning before the match in the garage last night, and will probably do the same tonight with the guns I shot today.

    If it helps MPro 7 is a water soluble gun cleaner that does a respectable job on powder fouling and the like. You can use it in the house without any smell at all (that is if your wife will let you).

    Hope this helps.

    If your wife will not let you clean the guns in the house because of the smell? Try MPro-7 does a great job of cleaning the gun, and MPro-7 does not smell.

    When you are finished shooting the match go by the armorer's table they will be more than glad to clean and inspect it.Ken

    I wouldn't want to waste the armorer's time on such a task.

    Besides, there was a line for the armorer when I got there. I actually did get one broken part replaced, and when they asked if I was having any other problems I joked about the slide ports on the 21c being hard to get clean but didn't guess they could fix that, and they insisted on cleaning the ports for me. I felt kind of bad about that.
