I clean any firearm I shot, the same day, after returning from the range. To me cleaning is almost as much a part of the whole process and I get a great deal of relaxation out of it. There is a big chill factor.
As far as how I go about it.........well, before I get started I usually set up all my cleaning kits, make sure I have enough patches and stuff, spread an old towel on my work table and turn on some music I like.
Then I make sure
(again) that all my guns are not loaded.
I take my guns down as far as they go without resorting to any sort of radical disassembly. However,once in a while I will try access the lockwork of my wheel guns, or remove the grips to be able to lube things more efficiently.
I like Break Free, Hoppe's #9 solvent and kits are either Hoppe's, Kleen Bore or Outers. I also have several small wire hand brushes...a brass wire brush and a stiff bristle nylon brush...both with wood or nylon handles....for cleaning any muck from around the face of the cylinder and the muzzle etc. Standard stuff.
