Call me crazy, but one of my favorite parts of a range trip that lets so many firearms see action, is the hours at the cleaning table getting to know my guns a little better!

I love the satisfaction of having a clean, well-oiled set of guns on the safe.

WoC, have you have a chance to take down your Ruger? A semi-auto is a much richer experience than a simple revolver. In fact, you probably don't even have to bother cleaning the GP100 yet.

It's sounds like it was a productive and fun day making smoke and noise.

I have never taken apart the GP100 but I have cleaned it after every shoot. I was told to never take apart a revolver......unless absolutely necessary. I've been told you could ruin the timing on the cylinder by taking it apart.

Jon and I took the Mark II apart twice in the club house at the range and I am confident I will be able to do it on my own. Just not very quickly at first. I'll be cleaning it tomorrow.

Oh, yeah. Jon also gave me a chamber flag and showed me how to use it on each of my guns for when there are cease fires on the range.

Another thing I learned is that if I want to shoot my revolver single action, I should be cocking the hammer with my left thumb, not my right. My left wrist and thumb is a little weak from moderate arthritis and it just seemed more comfortable for me to cock the hammer with my left thumb. Jon told me I should always be cocking the hammer with my right thumb. I'm going to have to practice that. It's not so smooth an action using my right thumb as it is with my left thumb.

I just remembered I had these two videos of Jon shooting a couple guns.

The first video is of Jon shooting my GP100, Maggie.





This one is of Jon shooting his Mark III with a suppressor. In between all the other gun shots you can hear how quiet that thing is.
