Is is alright to clean it after every 500 rounds or so?;4
Hello. I clean mine anytime that I shoot it. Since I carry it 7 days a week in a pocket holster, it does gather lint. I clean this out once-per-week even if I don't shoot it.
clean it after every visit to the range, or if it sits in pocket or drawer, once a month.
Its easier that way for me. I use Breakfree and it comes off real easy.
I clean mine every week, usually the evening after I shoot. Glocks are so easy to clean, I can't see any reason to leave them dirty. It's probably my imagination but mine seems to shoot better when it's nice and clean. I think it's happier!
I clean immediately after returning from the range, if possible. I don't like having dirty guns around, and my G27 is my primary carry weapon. Don't want to take any chances with it.
I clean my G26 about every 500 rounds or so, typically every few range sessions. Even at 500 rounds, there's not much "dirt" to remove.
At the other extreme for me, is my Ruger Mark II .22LR target pistol. I clean it every time I shoot it, even though it's much harder to clean. It just looks filthy after a shoot and is twitchier than a Glock.
I usually clean it after I get done shooting it. You could probably never clean it and it would still shoot fine, although I don't reccomend doing that.
Clean it after every trip to the range, clean the mags once a month.
As my old DI at Ft, Polk told us,
"Never let the sun set on a dirty weapon".
I live by that to this day.
i personally think that anyone that does not clean their gun every time they fire it, shouldnt own a gun
I would not carry a dirty gun. Say you are in a mall and there is a shooting, you are carrying, but do not shoot. In this situation it is nice to have a clean gun to immediately establish you did not fire.
Stephen Camp... what kind of pocket holster do you use?
Hello, Strange. It is a Galco PH286 and is made of horsehide.
Thanks. Does it do a good job of breaking up the outline to avoid "printing" when wearing snug fitting jeans for example?
Hello. No! This will not work in tight pockets. They must be loose, "Docker" type pants/pockets. There is a bulge, but in a year no one's noticed.
No discernable gun outline's visible, but I believe the package would just be too bulky for jeans.
Have you heard of anyone using or liking the leather kramer pocket hoster with the flat kydex panel attached?
Hello. No, sir. I have not.
I clean mine after each shooting session, no matter how many rounds I put through it. I know that Glocks will take a lot of abuse, but why risk having your gun fail in an emergency, becuse it was dirty. Remember, Father Murphy and his law rules the universe!!!
After each time I shoot...I bring it home, break it down and clean it up...
Having said that...another guy I know cleans his once a month 'whether it needs it or not'.
