I clean all my guns after each range trip.
Probably the most well thought out post Ive read on this subject!
Usually after every trip to the range. However I have sometimes skipped cleaning after 1 match and didn't bother to clean until after shooting a second match. But that's not the norm.
Every other month or 1k rounds. Whatever comes first.
Usually after each range trip.
I have never detail stripped the thing though.
When I go shooting I take my wife (also an armorer), she cleans them for me. Best of both worlds if you ask me, a pretty wife that loves to shoot and clean guns!
Guns are cleaned every time we come back from shooting.
Does she have a sister??
A couple of times a year - usually before a major match. I shoot around 5-6,000 rounds through 1 Glock in that time.
8 or 9 Glocks
many thousands of rounds
I clean it after I have gone shooting, however if I did not put many rounds through and will be back shooting again by the next weekend I will hold off until then.
My carry firearm is always clean, 1 round or 1000 rounds, cleaned and lightly oiled each time.
and which sock do you put on first? this is getting out of hand. i felt tortured as i read this thread......... close it already!
Even though it's not needed, I wipe the outside (slide) of my 27 and 23 with a touch of 3 and 1 oil every couple of weeks.
Not very often. I hate cleaning guns and thats one reason I have Glocks. I clean my Glocks about every 1000-1500 rounds..Never had a malfunction with any of them...
1992 was the last time I cleaned my G22 and I shoot jacketed and lead reloads in a complety stock pistol.
I've cleaned mine after every range session if I put down my than 200 rounds. If not, I'll field strip it, clean up the the frame, breechface, and slide channels real quick, oil and reassemble. If I do shoot a lot, I do a full barrel cleaning and scrubbing.
I know no paragraphs is annoying, but I am not long out of post grad work in university(~100 hours grad work) and writing all the papers was such a chore, grammar is not my strong point, and bout drove me nuts, but I will try.
Complete clean every time I shoot it. Complete clean once a month while it's being carried and not shot. Complete clean every 3 months if it's just stored away.
I hear you, I always enjoyed working on computers, but when I started a job as a remote support technician I got so burned out. It was to the point, that if I came home after work and something was wrong with my PC, I would just turn it off and say "screw it".
As of right now, I am probably going to be cleaning mine after every range session. Today was my first session and I put almost 200 rds through it. I expect after owning it for a few years... I will stop babying it and treat it like the tank it is.
after every time I shoot it
Yeah, isn't that the way of things in general?
It's one thing to enjoy something from the perspective of a hobbyist, collector or an enthusiast, but it can become another thing to look at something from the perspective of it being a tool or another piece of equipment in what may sometimes seem to be an endless line of them requiring your attention. "The thrill is gone", so to speak.
Personally, I make sure I take care of my personally owned firearms, and those of the folks for whom I provide armorer support, as if my life might hinge on the proper functioning of the guns when used as defensive weapons. Whenever I have to perform some repair or corrective action for someone's gun, I make sure it's in normal, intended functioning order to the point where I'd willingly carry it for my own personal usage. I don't look at them from the perspective of a hobbyist, collector or brand enthusiast/loyalist.
If I have a computer problem I call my son. That's his business.
+1 - I work in IT and the last thing I want to do when I get home is troubleshoot a PC.
