    After shooting I will do a field strip and clean. In between shooting I will clean every month or so and clear any dust bunnies. If the firearm gets wet I will clean the firearm. After handling any of the firearms in the gun safe I will wipe them down prior to placing them back in the safe.

    I shoot them every week, and clean them afterwards.

    After every trip to the range, which is once a week.

    Clean gun, clean mind, clean soul.

    I shoot my carry gun weekly. I’m ashamed to say I clean it about every three weeks.

    After I shoot it. I let the lint build up between shooting.

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    I do to! Not only do I like to clean my pieces after every range visit but I also count them in the safe everytime prior to locking it up when I'm leaving my house.

    X2 here on my .380, that I fire around 40-50 times each range trip (I go about every week/week and a half). My 9's usually get more than 100 at the range, so each time I get home for them.
