    What?? You're supposed to clean them....???



    Seriously though, I field strip and clean after every range session. 100 more rounds to my first 1000, at which point I'll detail strip and clean.

    After each range session (usually between 100-150 rounds).

    After every shooting session. I am excessive compulsive and a clean freak. I actually bothers me to know that my guns are sitting in the safe dirty. I guess I'm weird but that's how it is. I'm the same way with my house and cars.

    After every outing. If I don't use them, every couple months just to make sure they're clean.

    Rainy Days work good for me.....you won't hurt them......just triple check they are unloaded........the need to handle can be ugly if not 100% safety used.
    Good Luck and welcome:highfive:

    I haven't cleaned my 3rd gen G21 in over a year. I put a bit of lube down the rails every-once-in-awhile but that's about it. It's a housegun so I don't shoot it all that often. Maybe once a week or so behind the shed.

    I clean after I shoot or once every six months or so if they haven't been shot.

    I drop mine in a puddle and kick it around about once a year.









    but really about once a week after I shoot :supergrin:

    I don't usually do a thorough cleaning on my Glocks after every range outing. Sometimes I just run the bore snake through the barrel a few times and call it good.

    Everytime after I shoot it.
    Complete disassembly after every 250 rounds.

    I have trouble sleeping if I have a dirty gun.
