Do You Ever Put Your Gun Away...DIRTY....
Anybody here put there guns away Dirty...I clean mine after every shooting...My Friend says you don't have to clean your gun every time you shoot-it...I'm still going to clean mine,but whats your take on leaving them Dirty for a couple of shooting before you clean them ???...:confused:......

I may leave them if I only shot them a couple of times. Any more than that and I break out the cleaning kit.

Don't that stuff-in the barrel of the gun build-up,and it's harder to clean next time???....

if i fired less than 50 rounds ill store em dirty. 22's i clean when they start getting too filthy to function or i feel like it.

my self defense guns get cleaned after shooting. i dont carry them if they are dirty from range time.

Walther PK380, S&W BodyGuard 380, Luger LCP: YES
Gen4 Glock 17 and 27 ... NO. Can easily shoot a few thousand rounds between cleaning. (This is why I wish Glock would make a pocket pistol ... Or at least a slim sub-compact)

I'm not sure. If I only shoot them a couple (1-10) of times, there is virtually no or very little powder residue in the barrel. (Depending on the type of gun)

i clean my .22s every 1k rounds or so,everything else gets cleaned right when i get home from the range.if i just fire a few rounds to check zero for another day i just wait.a lot of people i know have never cleaned there 10+ year old hunting bolt actions and .44 wheelguns.unless you are shooting corrosive ammo or it is so dirty it is affecting performance i don't think it will really hurt anything,but i just like keeping all of my stuff clean and in good condition anyway.

I clean my guns everytime after shooting. Hell, sometimes I clean them again just for the hell of it when I'm bored. I practice putting them back together and loading them as fast as I can.

I have, but I usually clean them the next day. And I do find it kind of relaxing cleaning my guns.

I clean my firearms after everytime I shoot them and wipe them down a tad after I handle them daily.
