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.
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.
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.
