    p-239/40
    carried for 6+ years.
    typical range session is 200 std rounds and 50 SD (i re-load)
    twice a month and after i shoot it i spray the bore snake with rem oil on the tip; pass it up the mag well and out the bbl 3 times.
    wipe the gun down, load back up and head about my business.

    clean slide off when the action slows down or the gun just plain gets too dirty to handle---4 time a year anyways.
    i got over the clean like new obsession 20 odd years ago.

    with todays cleaner burning powders, hard lead and almost smokeless lube...that it functions is tops tied with accuracy.
    that said; when i do detail a gun, it looks good as new ( most are stainless). some older guns---1914 Mauser, 1903 colt and early 32-20's do get cleaned
    close to the days they are shot.

    but if you have a bad vibe----live with it. act on it or outgrow it.
    but do not doubt yourself. bad road to start down.

    as for handling marks, light scratches, holster marks--thems beauty marks.
    when you go to trade/sell a gun, under 98.5% to 90% price don't change worth getting worked up over.

    eg: use it and enjoy it or find another that will give you the satisfaction.

    --> someday i'll advertise a gun for sale and wanna bet how many will remember i said i keep em clean??
    for me there is a big difference between a working gun and one for play; the less often i shoot it, the cleaner it stays.

    Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
    to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them

    I'd replace it with a Hi-Point, They go "BANG" every time! Sorry, couldn't resist the temptation.

    I'm sure your gun is fine and will work for you for many years to come, BUT if you don't have any confidence in it, sell it and buy something you trust.

    Or you could buy a second and carry it as a BUG.

    1. Navy SEALS trust their behinds with a SIG P226. Unless you are involved in some kind of Black Ops wetwork, you will more than likely never push the gun as hard as they do, daily. (That was meant to be sarcastic )

    2. Not knowing your level of training/skill, learn malfunction drills until they are second nature. Any gun you carry could malfunction at some point. Your proficiency level will give you the confidence in your weapons system.
