    Of course you would also have to have gun power residue on your clothing and hands to really feel guilty ;)

    I haven't clean my G27 in over a year. Probably feed 5-600 rounds through it over 3 range visits (including some particularly nasty Wolfe ammo). Hasn't hiccuped one bit. I don't carry (yet) so it's not to critical I guess. I've gone longer without cleaning over the years through various Glock's and haven't had one bit of problem.

    Actually, the only time I've ever had a problem with a Glock was the first time I took my G27 to the range. Going through my 3 magazine of Corbon the recoil rod broke. Didn't realize what had happened because it stove piped a shell. Went to clear it and the slide went all the way back and wouldn't go forward. I went out and bought a new one from Ajax and didn't bother contacting Glock since it was cheap enough. I wound up getting a new one in the mail a couple of weeks later. Must have been an issue, I don't know.

    I have made a habit of cleaning mine each morning. I remove the magazine, lock the slide back, and insert a plastic coated metal cable up through the grip and out the ejector port. I loop this around my neck, ala "Glock on a rope". Then I take a normal shower. I towel dry, remove the cable, replace the magazine and chamber a round. Volia! A squeaky clean Glock, ready to rock and roll!

    I hope you find this method useful. ;f

    I clean my Glock after every shooting session. I also clean it once a week whether it needs it or not. It is sort of a Zen-like thing to get into the habit of doing. Kinda like a modern Samurai preparing for life's little battles. Just because a weapon can take alot of abuse does not mean you shouldn't take pride in it's condition.

    I don't clean my 27 everytime I shoot it. I have no reason to think it needs it. Heck, that's why I got a Glock!

    "i personally think that anyone that does not clean
    their gun every time they fire it, shouldnt own a gun"


    I agree,,,,I just don't understand how someone can just toss a filthy weapon in a drawer and not feel guilty. Maybe it is my military background, but it's just not right. It will take you 7 minutes tops to clean a glock....no excuse no to.

    It's one of those things...a Glock is a combat weapon. It performs regardless. That's why I love it! :D

    Every time I come back from the range I field strip my 27 and clean all the main components. About once every 2 months I give it a MAJOR clean- every part that I can get my hands on gets a clean, magazine parts included

    I clean a gun every time I shoot it. Its a good habit to get into, I think. I also clean my concealed carry weapon, a 27, every week or so, whether I shoot it or not. I find that lint can collect inside the barrel and around the back slide cover plate, from shirts and my Smart Carry. Plus, its just plain fun to take it apart and clean it, so why not? :D But will it work without it? Of course it will.

    I clean and lube after every shooting session. The last thing I want is a dirty weapon on my person if I get searched for some reason...sort of like dirty underwear.;) I don;t want to be carrying the recently fired weapon at a shootout in the mall, unless i was involved of course.
