Opinions large and small, worth everything you pay for them.
I heat with wood so I tend to clean a lot of guns every week . Anyone that has heated with wood and understands the abrasive nature of wood ash knows that you either clean weekly or store them in a plastic bag tightly which I do for the seldom used guns . Am I paranoid you ask ? Nope ! I got big ole boom sticks laying all around me , heh .
I admit that when I started shooting handguns, my first instinct was to clean each time I fired them. But I remembered that with long guns, we seldom cleaned them, after small game hunting, etc.I still cleaned them, until I read a guy who said that every time he drove his car, he didn't change his oil. It made sense, at least to me, and so my practice is now, I don't count rounds, I don't clean my guns each time I shoot them. What I do is to do a visual inspection of my guns when I finish shooting them, and judge whether or not they need cleaning by how they look as far as the amount of gunk deposited inside the workings.That is all gone by the wayside when it comes to any gun that I carry for a CCW defensive pistol. I try and keep them in a pretty clean state, just because. I don't want a striker fired gun to have a bunch of crap in the firing pin slot that could drag or even stop the thing. I do try and keep my carry gun lubed the way that it likes, but I also will re lube it, if I have not done so in a few months. I know, not a good idea, but sometimes I don't get to shoot my carry gun as often as one would like.
