I LOVE to shoot. I HATE cleaning my gun. I try to clean it after every trip to the range. If I shoot 10 rounds or 100 rounds. Auto or revolver. Weve all seen the videos of the Glock being buried in sand at the bottom of the ocean and run over by a truck then immediatly cycle through two mags. Hell, maybe Ill never clean my G23 again.

How often do yall clean your weapon? I was wondering how often LEOs and military are required to clean their weapons.
Happy cleaning!!!

I make sure the one that might save my life is cleaned after each use.I also check it before I take it out and put it on.You're talking about my life and it can't be replaced!

I clean my gun each time it is fired. Like any machine it is imperative that one cleans their gun to preserve and maintain operational integrity. This translates into enhanced safety.

I dont mind cleaning my guns. Its all part of the shooting experience. While I am cleaning I usually put on some good music. By far wheel guns are much easier to clean. After a good and meticulous cleaning, my guns are once again ready to go.

I love cleaning my Glocks! Take 'em out, run 'em through the mill......the drill. Through the sweat and heat, I don't believe they can be beat. Like a good woman who will stand beside you to the very end and you know it. Take her home and make love to her the way she deserves it.
On the other hand.........just go ahead and see how many rounds you can put through her before she gives up on you. Love it like it takes care of you unless you're heartless. Listen to her, never see her beg, don't dare hold her against her will.

My EDC's get cleaned every time they are fired, the rest depend on a few things. If I have only put a few rounds through them and know I will be firing them soon I will take them for a second session before cleaning them.

If you hate cleaning them I will suggest using Gunzilla on them as a cleaner and lube, it makes the task much easier.

Back to the EDC's, not only do I want my EDC to be running smoothly as possible, I do not want to handle or put a dirty gun in a good leather holster.

Handguns are easy and don't take long to clean at all. My AR is a bit more work. Both are still easy and I actually like to do it.

I clean my EDC everytime I go shooting. I rarely shoot less than 150 rds. though. Try Blue Wonder, it cleans while you rest.

I clean them every time I take them out shooting. If one has been sitting in the safe unfired for four or five months, I'll take it out and give it a good wiping down. Same goes for my EDC, I wipe it down once a week or so.

I use a little bit of gun oil on a cloth, then wipe that off with another clean cloth.

I believe he is addicted. I copied this section out of Wikipedia. Note the reference to Glock addiction near the end.

This article is about the concept of addiction. For other uses, see Addiction (disambiguation).
"-holic" and "-holism" redirect here: for them see wikt:holic and wikt:holism; distinguish them from the complete word "holism".
"Addictive" redirects here. For other uses, see Addictive (disambiguation).

The term "addiction" is used in many contexts to describe an obsession, compulsion, or excessive psychological dependence, such as: drug addiction (e.g. alcoholism), video game addiction, crime, money, work addiction, compulsive overeating, problem gambling, computer addiction, nicotine addiction, Glock addiction, etc.

Don't do the GA meetings. Don't have to since I'm not in despair. I keep 'em all satisfied. Addiction is an influence on life. Glock is my life, so there is no influence, and hence no addiction. If any of them let me down, I know it's because I have let them down in one way or another. I cherish them all, and still one at a time. No jealousy, they've all slept with me, and there's no waiting in line. I'm feeling up my G23 right now. She looks good, she feels good, she's clean, and I'm game. We go skin on skin frequently. When I'm hot, she's hot. How could I not want? Mmmm.

Okay then. Obsession and compulsion I can deal with. I aint none of the rest of 'em. Addiction is out for sure okay? So long as we have an understanding.

How about a quick cleaning after each range trip and a more thorough cleaning every 3 or 4 trips. Something like that would require less time and should be adequate. Some people rarely clean their guns. I think I'm pretty good about it but I'll sometimes skip cleaning for an outing or 2.

The only Pistol I have ever cleaned is my Taurus PT145 and it is so easy to clean, I usually take it apart and inspect it/dust it off just for something to do. It is also my EDC so I keep it as immaculate as possible. I second Gunzilla. I have not found anything easier or more effective!

If you're lazy, spray the hell out of it with CLP and pull a bore snake through the barrel. Let it drip dry and you'll be fine. Should take all of 90 seconds.

Wouldn't maintain a high end 1911 like that but for a glock you'll do fine.

I clean them each time they're fired. I enjoy cleaning them and making mental notes on the wear and tear.

I clean my guns after every round of shooting. Well except for the cheapo Heritage Arms .22 plinker. I may shoot a couple of rounds with it before a good cleaning. Both of my Glocks are so easy to clean there is no reason not to. They can easily be cleaned in just a few minutes. Might take a little longer when disassembling the slide, but that doesn't have to be done all that often. The ease of cleaning and maintaining is one of my favorite things about Glocks. The LCP isn't too bad either. Mostly it gets the pocket lint cleaned out more than having to clean after shooting.
