Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Thanks Cane for making me feel better.

I don't clean mine till I get misfires and jams. Until then I just keep banging away. They are guns made to be shot not primped like a women. I whore mine out a lot never had a single problem with them.

Same goes for rifles. I will clean my varmint rifle once maybe twice a year. Or if I have a good season 3 or 4 times. I will clean it at the beginning of the season in march april time then shoot it spring summer and fall then clean it again about november when I am done killin vermin with it.

These are all just opinions on how often each of us clean our guns, but I wouldn't wait until my carry gun has a misfire or jams before I clean it...I may not get another chance to clean it.
I'm just saying...

depends on the gun.

i clean after every range trip. but not after every time it is fired.

however with my "sentimental" guns. i clean them after every time they are fired, and oil them and tuck them back in the cabinet.

they do have to be passed down to my future son/grandson some day

After every shooting session... I would go insane not knowing if my barrel was rusting if I didn't.

Barrels don't rust from some powder fouling. Unless your shooing some corrosive ammo.

I'm picky about all my tools or machinery which includes my guns because I want them to last and to function properly. I clean my guns after every range outing. I just like knowing they are clean and well lubricated. My deer rifle gets cleaned before the season starts and then again when it's over.
I don't disagree with tango or cane at all, my cleaning is overkil but I like it. Guys, I was my lawn mower deck, my weed eater and my chainsaw.

I used to clean all the time then I get lazy and fed up with buying patches every time I turned around. I have seen ZERO decrease in life span or accuracy in any of my guns.
