the revolvers, auto feeder pistols, auto fed rifles get cleaned thoroughly within a couple of days after shooting. IMO gunpowder and bullets leave crud, not a fan. Live in Houston area so they are stored in a humidity controlled gun safe.If I didn't at least clean the mags of my Browning Challenger I'd have jams.

I'm lucky in that out west the climate is dry. It is very easy to maintain the guns. Rust is very rare.

I clean my guns after every use with Balistol.

That is because you live on the dry side... I grew up in Omak...

I grew up in Florida but after graduating high school in 75 I went into the service and was stationed out west. That is when I said goodbye to the humidity and roaches for good.

light oil every 6 months whethere used or not. Plus good scrubbing with Hot soapy water followed by Hoppes #9 followed by light oil for 3 days in a row if I shoot black powder or corrosive primers.
