    Rifle Storage

    OK, I admit I am a little, shall we say, obsessive. I have my AR in the safe and ever day or so I flip it over in so that the bolt does not "dry out" I run CLP and tend to run it wet. Anybody else do this or am I going overboard? Just curious.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Overboard. If you run your gun wet as I do, it's fine.
    But let's be honest....you just want to touch it!!!
    I love my AR 10 too!!!

    Any quality lube, like CLP, isn't going to run off to the extent that anything dries out. Once you give the area a good coat of lube, you are good to leave it alone until you shoot it and need to clean it up. I promise that you don't need to flip it over every couple of days! I like the enthusiasm for gun maintenance though!

    Keep it up and you'll make it dizzy and it won't shoot straight.

    Please explain what your talking about and where it came from.
    If you not using it coat it with CLP and forget it until you use it.
    If by some chance it sits there for 10 years it will fire just fine the second you grab it, and keep firing long enough for you to add some lube.
    CLP leaves a protective and lube coating on the parts .
