I agree. After 300 plus rounds thru my gun this weekend, I brushed off the bolt face, snaked the bore twice, and sipped off the feed ramp, then straight to carry mode.I'll be a little contrary here.
I used to clean my firearms after every trip to the range. Now...not so much. If I'm going to carry a pistol, I make sure it works either by firing a few rounds or by performing a function check. If I don't get the chance to fire the pistol, I'll function check it, to include snapping the firing pin against a pencil eraser to make sure the pin will be hitting the primer with force.
If I've fired a few rounds as my function check, I'll run a bore snake through the barrel, wipe out the chamber, and wipe the pistol down. Make sure it's lubed appropriately.
I do like the smell of Hoppes #9 and a clean pistol, but I really like to know that the firearm is going to work if I need it. A little fouling won't hurt a good firearm.
If you need to field strip a gun after a little shooting to make sure it will operate properly, ya need a better gun.
