    Cleaned 25 guns today....

    Well, sort of. I took four of my j-frames and a Ruger Mk III to the range.

    The only problem with revolvers is that you're cleaning the "barrels" in your cylinder and then the main business barrel.

    So that's (5+1)x4 + 1 barrels I cleaned when I got home.

    Maybe I'll just switch to Glocks and forget about cleaning for a while. Not that you need to clean revolvers after every shoot, they just don't look nice dirty. Glocks, on the other hand, don't look nice clean.

    Any of you wheelie fans ever get that feeling of dread when you're driving home from the range after taking a stash of your favorite wheels out for a shoot?

    It's tough being an old fogey at times.

    Doesn't take much longer for me. Maybe an extra 5 minutes tops.

    I don't like cleaning one gun, much less 25.

    I don't love cleaning my revolvers but It's the price I pay for loving to shoot them.

    Are you supposed to clean them? I just take them in the shower with me and shampoo them.

    I'm a new guy here.

    Maybe I just haven't been doing it long enough, but i still enjoy cleaning the S&W 640 that I bought in February. I've put about 400 rounds through it since then. Cleaning it lets me focus on a detailed task while letting the stress of the day go away for a short time.

    And the winner is...The best shampoo for man or implement is Original Irish Spring Body Wash. It's all I use.
