I like the post fire checks but would rather just cycle my empty gun aa few times to know that it works fine. I worked in my armory for over 2 1/2 years on my ship in the navy and know that with our 45's, 9's, M-14's, and M-16's that I'd put thousands of rounds threw them a year and know that after every cleaning and posrt firing cycling test they worked like the well oiled machine I kept them to be. One thing is for certain though, you can use too much oil so if you're going out in the fields for hunting keep them mostly dry so you don't have to deal with them possibly failing on you when you need them.
Not to mention, bad things can happen in remote places, criminals know very well how long it takes for authorities to respond in remote areas and some choose these locations for that very reason.

Shoot on an outdoor range, have to clean at home, every time..
I shoot outdoors, so I always clean them when I get home, but I do carry it home dirty.

a lot of times I'll clean at my friends outdoor range when I'm done. it's nice not to need to worry about the smell and mess and dropping my trash in the burn barrel. I'll at least hit my Saiga with some CLP or a garden hose in case I shot some corrosive ammo.
I clean all of my guns once a month whether they need it or not. No, you are not out of line for cleaning at the range.
