    Why?
    Sig 226, 228. Glock 19, 23. Smith Model 60,and 1911. XD45 Tactical. Mossberg 930 SPX.

    How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.

    i missread, i thought the doc was giving the advice, didnt see a glock armoror was giving it.

    I was thinking the doc was poking fun at glocks being "machine washable" b/c they were "tupperware"

    oops

    I used to clean my stainless handguns in the dishwasher. Remove the grips before cleaning. Take them out at the end, spray them down with CLP, wipe down and good to go. Never had a problem - except my exwife would complain.

    Don't have that problem now.

    Anyone who thinks this is a good idea should read the MSDS sheets on all the chemicals involved in shooting, lubricating, and cleaning your gun.

    Then tell me you want that stuff on the dishes you eat with.

    You wash your hands immediately after shooting...yet putting your firearm in the dishwasher is a good idea?!

    Quite possibly this one wins the "Darwin award" for the stupidest thing I have read in a long, long, loooooong time...

    I wouldn't think a dishwasher would gun a weapon very clean.

    I've heard about the Glock in the dishwasher before myself. Not me, but I guess it would be okay. I don't think it would do very well on the barrel though, and the barrel is the main part that needs to be cleaned on a Glock anyway.

    Actually the dishwasher that I have would probably be put to better use as a gun safe then for "washing the dishes". I always wind up pre-washing. We just call it the Sanitizer. I think I'd soak every metal part in the old varsol sink before I did anything like that.

    tell me this thread is a joke.... Is this how you get it clean after you bury it and dunk it in mud? I'm starting to grow tired of hearing the whole

    Hey I can run over my gun with my truck and its fine!
    Hey I can throw my gun in a lake for a month and its fine!
    Hey I can submerge my gun in water then fire it without dumping the water out of the barrel!
    Hey I can bury my gun in dirt and sand then fire it without any worry!
    Hey I can cook my loaded gun in an oven to fit it to the holster!
    now you have Hey I can wash my glock in a dishwasher... no more cleaning patches for me!

    A firearm is a tool. It should be treated as such. Unfortunatly when the owner is a tool you get the above statements.

    Sure I'm all for reliable weapons but there is a difference between a firearm that was made reliable for the battlefield and one that is made reliable for consumer target practice/CC. Battle weapons arn't ment to last many years and be handed down to your kid, his kid, etc. They are made to get you out of an encounter alive. Not many ccl holders are going to infiltrate an enemy camp and take out the target then retreat while laying cover fire down with a baby glock

    I don't know about you but I'm not going to drop 6 bills on a glock and not spend 30 bucks and 30 minutes to clean it right!..... actually I wouldn't drop 6 bills on a glock.... so carry on
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Anyone else ever hear anything like this?
    This is a common point of discussion on another Glock forum but there's the deal. It takes no time to break it down and clean it right. It's really foolish to do this anyway because the lead that washes off the gun is coating everything in the dishwasher and the next time you use it, the trace lead gets on the dishes. Just not smart at all.

    Do it right.

    I do to except for that couple of times a years that I pull all of um out of the safes and clean um. First 3 or 4 no big deal, but after that it gets kinda boring. I mainly just oil and wipe down the safe regulars and save the real cleaning for the CC rotation weapons.

    I have never heard of putting it in the dishwasher. I would say though, if there was a pistol that could handle it and function properly, it'd be a Glock.

    +1 on keeping lead and shooting chemicals away from eating utensils.

    If you really want to clean your guns, get an ultrasonic cleaner and the appropriate firearm-specific cleaning solutions. (they are water-based and have rust inhibitors)

    I like cleaning my pistols!

    I think it's relaxing and therapeutic to sit at the table and clean my gun!
