Default Rainy day gun cleaning.

Gonna rain all day so might as well clean a few guns. I'll start with these. Check for rust, wear, and re-lube all. All have been shot this year and none cleaned thoroughly, just a good wipe down.

That should take about 15 minutes.
Then what do you plan to do?

WOW! Can you say Rampant Colt? What a collection!

Being someone who has to scrape for every gun, I can't imagine I'll ever have such a pile.

Bully for you, though!
