Yes, make it a habit to clean your weapon after every firing, and I clean mine monthly even if not fired

Absolutely! A clean firearm is a happy firearm. Follow the cleaning instructions that came with the weapon. You want it to work if you ever need it.

Old thread....You don't really have to anymore...ammo is no longer corrosive so it's not imparative it has to be done after every visit. With that being said...I clean every other visit or if it's going to sit for a while. I recommend Ballistol. Stuff is awesome and I use Wilson Combat lube for all my lubing

I know in my heart that my truck rides better after I wash it.

How frequently you clean depends really on what you are shooting. .22 rimfire- every few thousand rounds. A military rifle shooting corrosive primed milsurp ammo? Every time you shoot it.

Hoppe's has been the standard cleaning solvent for ages- note that it is NOT a lubricant or rust preventer. CLP is both.

Which product can quickly become a "less filling, tastes great" moment. Everyone has their favorite.

Frog lube, invented by Navy Seal for extremes. Clean your bore with any other product, then use Frog Lube and be amazed at how much dirt is left. It's good for everything it touches, and, it smells like mint.
