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

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.
