Well due to the fact our Dad was a stickler for clean firearms, they are cleaned as follows:
Prior to going hunting, after hunting, and at least once every month thereafter unless they are fired. Any firearm that I shoot
will be cleaned immediately. First learned at home, then honed in the military, continued after I ETSd, and now in my present job I
continue this. We qualify every quarter and I return to clean my duty weapon immediately - field stripping it, running a cloth down
the barrel, then a patch with hoppes solvent and finally putting a couple drops of Hoppes gun oil on a patch and rubbing a light coat
all over. Keeping them cleaned and oiled ensures that they will work when I need them. I now own my grandfathers Winchester
.30WCF and his LC Smith shotgun and those are kept the same as our Dad did - cleaned and in good working order. They have been
in excellent working order since I was old enough to recall my Dad using them.
Thanks for the invite to let me share.
