which gun to use?
 
So normal new years tradition is to blow up our gingerbread houses with firecrackers. This year we decided to shake it up and use a firearm to destroy them. I've narrowed it down to my Mosin, Winchester model 24 12 ga. Or my Remington r1

I'd do it with the Winchester but that may end the fun to fast, so maybe the Remington.

Mosin... Shoot the 5 rds. and bayonet anything that remains! :)

Great minds think alike! LOL, I was just going to post this exact idea.:D

Well mom killed the idea. One with the mosin (first time I've shot it btw) 2 in high miss. Then 2 12 ga. So fun ended quickly. With only one round thru the mosin how should I clean it?

Very well or else it'll lose value...

to clean the chamber and bore:

If the ammo was non-corrosive, clean normally.

If corrosive, run boiling hot soapy water through it, scrub it with a couple of patches or a bronze brush soaked in the hot soapy water, then rinse with copious amounts of clear boiling water. (I use at least a quart) Let it air dry, then run a patch soaked in alcohol though to get the last drops of water.

I'm very persnickety about cleaning after using corrosive ammo. OTOH, that may be why I've been able gto use literally tens of thousands of rounds of highly corrosive ammo over the years and never had a speck of rust!
