Around 250 Rounds
Around 500 Rounds
Around 750 Rounds
Around 1000 Rounds
I clean my guns every time I shoot, unless I know im going to shoot the same gun the next day, but if I shoot a lot the first day I will still clean it before I go shooting again on the second day.
I'll bet he cleaned that AR or M16 before it went 1000 rounds. He might get away with it if it uses a gas piston rod but no way in heck would a gas impingment action work for that long.
If he did'nt and his life depended on it, then I sincerely hope it dosent catch up with him.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

I clean every time I shoot, with a weekly wipedown reoiling fieldstrip to get the lint and dust from carry out.
I know not what this "overkill" means.
Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.
I clean my guns every time I shoot. I enjoy it, and it is good to visually inspect them to make sure nothing is wrong with them.
I voted "every time I Shoot".... but in reality, its more of a "It depends".
If I put 300-400 rds through anything on Sat, and *know* I'm gonna have time to do the same on Sun, I'll wait till Sun night to clean up. If I know I won't shoot for another week or so, I'll clean them that evening.
I guess my philosophy is...
I hate a filthy gun... but If I know I'm gonna dirty it up in the next day or two... why bother cleaning it tonight.
If it ain't cocked and locked, you may as well throw it at them.
