Ditto. I don't understand why anyone wouldn't clean a firearm after using it.I usually clean the entire weapon after every time it's fired. Too many years in the military to let me feel comfortable with a dirty weapon. Does it need to be cleaned so often? Probably not but that's just me. It would take a lot of "Dirt" to really effect a Glock in any way. I guess that you could shoot a Glock for years without cleaning it and it will still function. Check out some of the Glock torture tests on You Tube.
This. I just use a toothbrush to get any residue out of there.I brush it out after every shooting but I do not remove the pins to take out the trigger every time if that's what you mean. It's not necessary and can eventually work them loose. I only remove them maybe twice a year on heavy use guns.
But then I don't shoot Russian ammo either. I had a case of .380 and gave most of it away after cleaning a Sig with about 100rds through it.
Not hard to believe. When I took my cross over for the SD, back in '87, there were a number of cops at the academy, requalifying. Guns were 4" Smith revolvers that would definitely hit what you wanted, except in the hands of some cops. Passing score was 230 out of 300 and you got 3 attempts, but each attempt had to be done on a different day, if you needed it. It was interesting the number of 227's and 228's that got 'grandfathered' through, after 3 failed attempts. You could shoot a 240 on that course, blindfolded, standing on your head, and shooting with your foot.I know it's hard to believe but some Cops are the worst shots at the range barely qualifying.
