Having said that, I put about 500 rounds through my Glock 21 at a match in September and still haven't cleaned it. Rest assured I will before I use it to put one more round down range. Some people figure a lack of cleaning is the equivalent of there own torture test. OK for them but not with my EDC. Call me paranoid, but I go bang once with my EDC and it's getting cleaned. Do I trust my EDC if it's dirty? Yes. Do I trust it more if I know it's clean? Absolutely!
