I also use a Bore Snake but probably differently than you..I dip it in Hopes 9 where the string and tube start..I pull it through til I feel the brass part coming out..then pull it back and forth about 5 times..Really does the job..Hope this helps some..

I am not a stickler to cleaning as I use to be. I would before clean my firearms after every use. I have gotten lazy so I only clean them once a year.

One advantage of living out west is the climate is extremely dry. I have never had a gun rust. For this reason I wipe them down and clean them everyother time I go shooting. They have always remained in top shape and accurate.

What is your criteria for cleaning your guns?

When I shot frequently, I'd let .22s go for a few weeks between cleanings. But, due to the economy and tight fundage, I don't shoot as often as I once did and I don't want the guns to go several months or a year between cleanings. Now I always clean my guns within a day or two of going to the range.

How do you clean your guns?

With my rifles and revolvers. if I've shot a lot, I'll use a wire brush and hoppe's number 9 followed by patches until they come out clean. Otherwise, I'll just use gun oil and then patches.


What products do you use and what methods to thorough cleaning.

I'll use Hoppes #9 to do a thorough cleaning. I also use Rem-Oil wipes on the exterior metal parts of my firearms and sometimes on the wooden parts of my rifles (not sure if that's a good idea though). I follow the manual on where to lubricate my semi-auto pistol.

I've pretty much got a random assortment of cleaning supplies from the kits you can buy at Walmart. Where possible, I do everything from the breech instead of the muzzle because I don't want to damage the crown of the barrel.

Gator Dude, all I want to know about "zombies" is : If I shoot 'um, will the food shelf take 'um?

it is best to keep it as clean as if your life depended on it.
I clean them every time I shoot..one shot or 100

I guess it depends on what type of firearm you're talking about. My handguns get wiped down regularly my ARs and AKs only if I feel like it. I just went into the thousands before giving them a wipe down. It's been proven to not be necessary.

SLiP2000™ - Articles It's now just under 50k and there are others being used in the same class at the 20k round mark.
