Default Like Cleaning or Shooting More?

Not sure if I like the experience of shooting 450 rounds between 3 gun or cleaning 3 guns more, which do you like more?

Its a toss up for me. I love shooting, but cleaning afterwards is so relaxing to me. This is going to sound corny as hell, but when I clean, I almost feel like a musician. When I shoot, it feels like I'm creating a work of art.

Personally reloading is my favorite part.....

In the Army, we had to scrub the blue off of the weapon - now, I hate to clean any type of weapon system.

A fellow member once said, "If it won't run dirty, I won't buy it." I couldn't agree more. I just run a snake through the barrel and lube when necessary.

Shooting is fun, cleaning is cheaper!

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!

I really don't like cleaning my guns.

Seems like a rhetorical question.

Shooting!

No for real, I really don't mind the cleaning part of the game, it's almost a right of passage. The cleaning is not the end to the experience but the beginning of the next. But I like shootin' em more! I think if I had the experience of being required to rub the blue off I would change my mind like our partner above!

Trip286 that's a truly poetic statement.
