Used to do the white cloth inspection after a day at the range. Every weapon, pistol, rifle or launcher that went back into the arms room was checked for any debris. Didn't have any problems when we went to the range next time. Still believe in that after all these years.

As most expressed I clean and inspect my firearms after every use. Is it required? No. Is it a reasonable method to insure your firearm is in top working order? Yes. The chances of a fail to fire, fail to eject or a jam are higher on a dirty firearm, it might only increase to possibility by a small fraction but why risk it?

I tool well maintained will work as expected and last for a long time. I tool neglected has a chance of failure and will show the neglect over time.
