I clean and lubricate my new pistols prior to shooting.
Glocks will run filthy if correctly lubed, and cleaned in the right places. I ran this G22 to over 15K before detail cleaning. Only the barrel and lubing. The crud just goes along for the ride.
That photo is confidence-inspiring and very impressive.
I clean all of my guns (even Glocks) every time I shoot them, but as far as the compound that lingers in the rails- just shoot it.
My home range is right out the service door on my garage and on average I shoot a magazine full every other day on my EDC just because. Once a month cleaning is enough for me.
My G17 that is on the nightstand has about 600 rounds through it and she fine. I just didn't have the time to clean it after I shot it last. The 1911 that was shot with the G17 the same day did get a cleaning.
I did wipe my Glock off with a Silicon cloth tho.
I will shoot the ole 17 in a day or so and then give her a scrubbing.
If you THINK gun cleaning is fun...you don't have a RUGER MK lll...
Ha-Ha. Little know fact that Bill Ruger used to make Chinese Puzzles before he decided to get into the gun business.
Some of his earlier pistol prototypes below...
RTFM: Glock says leave the copper lube in place. No need to remove it.

When I didn't know better , I cleaned the copper anti - seize out of my new Glock . However , I clean it every few hundred rounds after using for gun games . This way , I feel confident that my Glock is ready for the first stage of my next competition .
I would try to keep some oil on the barrel inside and outside and keep the slide slightly lubed.. glocks can function without a lot of oil.. but being cleaned and even a slight bit of oil on the barrel and the slide rails can keep the gun functioning under bad weather..
So if you have a brush for the bore and go thru 5 times and run a couple slightly oily patches that helps long term. The bringing a gun in from freezing temps makes all the metal parts get wet.
Spraying with a gun cleaner / lube is really simple and helps keep your gun in great condition. You dont need to clean crazy often.. even one every few months is fine.. takes only 5 or ten minutes to give a glock a quick wipedown. I like using blue scott shop towels with a very small spray of hornady oneshot... which is a reloading press cleaner / lube.. seems to keep all the lint and such under control.
If I get a new or used gun I usually clean it....
Then I shoot and shoot and shoot it... I do wipe off the outside. When I feel like fouling or crud is a problem I clean it.
I'm of the school of thought that if it won't run a little dirty I don't want it.
Its been working for me a really long time.... I love Glocks
Its not that hard to do a quick cleaning.. i dont understand the being happy i have 12 thousand rounds thru my gun and its filthy deal. We had an idiot at work that bought new cars and sold them at 5 years old... never changed oil even once.. why would you do that ??
I don't understand the people who care so deeply about how often I clean my guns.
*I have a Ruger MRKIII ... What a royal pain that thing is to take down - I dread it !!
