    First Time Cleaning my XD... HELP!!!

    Ok, so I am an ultimate newbie.... Well, not that new, but, I've never cleaned a handgun before... actually, I've never cleaned a gun. My dad is a gun owner, but I seriously doubt that he ever cleaned one of his rifles...

    So, I've looked over the owners manual, and the instructions that I received in the kit, but I'd like more instruction... If anybody is willing...

    Does anybody know a good sight which may give detailed step by step instructions on how to clean my .45?

    Thanks...

    What problem are you having exactly?

    The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about keeping the government in check. This requires that the citizenry is well armed and at all times has immediate access to arms.

    This site has field stripping as well as detail stripping tutorials. I used it to help me install my trigger kit:
