So I'm starting to get the hang of cleaning but it seems like it's harder than what people have described to me. I've been in auto detailing for a couple years and I therefore was trained to have a detailer's eye. I was trained by some of the best in the industry and consequently, it's made me a perfectionist when it comes to cleaning. I've cleaned my new Sig Sauer P226 twice now and I'm starting to get the hang of it but it seems more time-consuming than what people say. I've heard guys talk about going to the range and then cleaning it real quick after. I just went to the range for the first time since I last cleaned it and it took me almost 2 hours to thoroughly clean it again. Granted, I definitely was not rushing as this is my day off and I was also text messaging a lot while cleaning. Nevertheless, I found a LOT of black buildup all throughout the slide and frame. The second I thought I was done, I kept finding more and more and it took quite a bit of rubbing with the cleaning patches to get the dirt out, mostly because of the nooks and crannies. This makes sense to me as explosions always create byproducts and send stuff flying everywhere, but why is it that so many people act like a quick clean after the range is no big deal? I've also been taught in detailing to always try to use the least aggressive method possible. So I'm used to trying to use more elbow grease instead of powerful cleaners. Does this apply at all to guns or should I just douse the thing in cleaning solvent to speed the job up and clean better?
