Usually I shoot guns right out of the box. The barrels should be clean enough. Moat of my guns just have excess oil on them which will burn off anyway. No biggy. It's really up to you.
Yeah.. Thats exacty what I told my buddy. I told him its up to him whether or not he wants to clean it before he takes it to the range. Although, I did tell him that if was going to put a few hundred rounds through it then he should clean it when he returns home.Usually I shoot guns right out of the box.

Exactly. I will always tear them down before I shoot them. After that, if I think I need to clean it I will. But I always inspect itJohn_Deer said:Some manufacturers don't put a heavy layer of grease on their products. If the gun is reasonably clean when you get it things will likely go well at the range. What motivates me to to tear down and clean a new gun is that is the best time to spot imperfections or improperly seated parts.
My Desert Eagle came from the factory is this thick sticky packing grease in and on it. It took some tine to get it all off.Guns are shipped in preservative oils/grease to ensure there is no rust, this stuff is not intended to act as lubricant for extended use. Ideally you should remove it and ensure the gun is lubed properly. If nothing else, your chance of problems be decreased. Some guns demand it. CZs or old Combloc Milsurp stuff can be quite gooey.
Like so many things in life, just because you can get away with it doesn't make it a good idea.
