I clean my weapons EVERY time I shoot them. To me its just taking care of my guns. When do you usually clean your guns?

it reallly depends on how much i use the weapon. my ar i clean about every 1000 rounds just cause. and my competition guns i clean just before every comp so i know there clean and the tirggers are good and smooth. as far as my carry gun goes i generaly clean it about every month when i swap out my carry ammo. i like to clean it and then run the old ammo threw it just to make sure it functions and i get to shoot full power ammo once in awhile. sometimes i clean it if ive gotten it dirty with out a live fire function check but i use it a the range just to keep my finger in practice.

I shoot it, I clean it. Got two of them to clean tonight after I relax a bit. :D

I clean my Glocks every six months whether they need it or not. I clean my KelTecs slightly more often. I clean my 870 maybe once a year, my M4gery and Scout about quarterly. I don't remember the last time I cleaned my .22 rifle.

My Buckmark .22 pistol just sits in the safe; it's clean but I never shoot it. It'll be for sale in October. My Commander never gets shot either, but it's not for sale.

I wipe 'em all down to keep them from rusting, though that's not much of a problem in dry Arizona.

I clean my guns after each shooting session and when I'm bored. Yesterday was probably the sickest I ever felt in my life and in a funny way, the smell of gun oil actually made me feel a little better. I think it's fun to clean my guns. However, when I used to have my cap and ball revolver, I hated cleaning that thing. It was so dirty all the time.

I will clean my handgun after every trip to the range which is only once or twice a month. My shotgun which gets more use in the fall/winter seasons is cleaned after every use. Usually, every four to six weeks in the off season I will pull it out to inspect and operate the action.
