Sweat doesn't really effect my revolver, but pocket lint does.

It seems to be worse when I carry it in a tuckable more than pocket carry.

I give it a surface cleaning once a week

I clean all my handguns once a month (fired or not) and once a week if I carried it.. Probably overkill, but they are like my babies.

Surface cleaning every few days, more frequently if I see clear gunge on the outside. Weekly function/lube check for pocket-carried pistols; usually a bit longer than that for hip-carried pistols. All are well holstered, keeping much of the muck off the guns. When pocket carried, pocket lint can be a problem. But then, cleaning out the pockets daily helps cut lint to a minimum.

My carry method is a belt carry as well. I will, however, give my carry guns a quick wipe-down about once per week and do an inspection whilst doing it. It's an old habit from my cop days....

I'm not sure what kind of holster I would be using for sweat to be an issue :confused:

That's the great thing about carrying a Glock; I just wear it all the time and the shower cleans it off pretty well. Plus I don't think it actually sweats all that much. I'm carrying it, so it just rides along in leisure.

Depends on the gun. I could care less about my Glocks. But my Colts get a good oily wiped down every few days, and field stripped after every range out, a detail upper strip and clean about every 3 months.

Unless fired, an oil swab through the barrel and chambers once a month does it for me. Rarely see lint and pocket carry exclusively.

After 3 years in humid Florida, never. I always wear a wicking tee shirt and holsters with a sweat guard so my guns never get wet from m sweat. Plus as a senior citizen I no longer spend long periods of time outdoors so I am mostly in air conditioned places. :) The only time I had to dry a gun was when I got caught in a rain storm.

At least 2 times a month I give them a quick inside and out clean. My Glock 32 is compinsated so it gets lint in the barrel so ill run a patch through it once a week. I find it relaxing, besides I love the smell of a clean gun.

If not fired ill drop the slide wipe off the old lube and lightly relube about every week two at most just to keep it slick. If fired more than a couple of rounds Ill clean it.
