    Daily wipe-down...

    I like to take my CCW handgun out every day (or two) and wipe it down. I use an old bed sheet. Does anyone think there's something better I could use?

    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    That should work. I save my worn out socks. Slightly dampen one with Rem-Oil for a quick daily wipe down.

    Check out Rusty's Rags. Really good stuff.

    Cool

    I have been doing the same routine living in Florida for over thirty years and I still use a silicone gun and reel cloth.

    Hm. Quite a few are using silicone rags. Interesting.

    I wipe the firearm with a damp rag that has been dipped in Eezox.

    Same here, when I wipe it down that is. I don't do it as regularly as I used to.

    I've been using a Rig Rag with silicone for about ten years. The big gun store in town swears by them. I can attest it has worked great for me. I also ensure my safe has a active dehumidification and all guns are stored in Gun Socks which also have silicone. Seems anal but as everyone here knows our guns are a significant investment.
    A little TLC early and often can lead to a whole lot of problems well avoided!
    It's not a problem til they make it one!
