Default Learned a lesson

My mini is all tricked out w/a tactical package. So that means there is a bit more disassembly required before getting down to field strip. Now I clean after every firing. The lesson, when you take your mini to the range, shoot a boatload of ammo making the cleaning session worthwhile.

I'm with you Hoss, I'll take my Ranch Rifle just the way it is. Nice to shoot, and quick to break down and clean.

Quick to break down is relative.

Not really. It all depends on the gun. Some just end up taking longer.
