    I spent to many years teaching young soldiers the importance of keeping their weapon cleaned not to do so myself. Besides, field stripping and cleaning is almost as much fun as shooting.

    I love cleaning my guns, they all get a weekly cleaning even it they haven't been fired. If they have been they get cleaned right after I get home from the range, but they still get there weekly cleaning too lol

    What type of cleaners, lube, or solvents do you use and do you use the same on shotguns and rifles? I also noticed some cleaning kits have what looks like very hard bristle attachments. Are these really used for cleaning the inside of barrels because it looks as if these would scratch instead of clean.

    I always clean a new one before I fire it. That way I know it's been done.

    So long as the bristles are softer than the steel they're cleaning (ie, brass bristles), then they shouldn't damage a thing.

    What cleaners/solvents? There are plenty on the market, and many swear by certain ones. Hoppe's #9 seems popular. As does Break Free. I've used both, and both seem to work fine. YouTube has a few decent videos on cleaning technique and products.
