Keep your work area clean. Be diligent in separating your brushes and rods. The first time that you jam a 9mm rod into your .22LR barrel and it gets stuck there will be the last time that it happens (if you learn )..

Read up on your supplies. Some cleaners don't work well with certain finishes. Using the proper cleaner can also minimize wear as you will need less force to get parts clean. Using the wrong cleaner can damage some parts.

Above all, be safe. In your home it's easy to sit in front of the television and disassemble and clean your firearm. The danger is that you can get so comfortable that you become careless. I'm very strict with myself and others about the maintenance portion of shooting, possibly even stricter than when I'm on the range.

Heh... I went to the range yesterday with some old friends. We took a few of my guns and spent almost two hours there. My ammo bag was a lot lighter when we left (my maybe thirty pounds)... Needless to say I have a whole lot of cleaning ahead of me.
