You mean if I take them out to fondle them, then put them away? Then I’ll have to say no.

I lube it as I would to shoot it. I do not lube the surface of the weapon.

I clean all of my firearms,lube and put them in the safe.Not long term storage, just until I get them out to shoot again.tom.

I coat mine with RIG every once and a while. They usually aren't in the safe for more than a week at a time though.

I leave mine dry. AL doesn't rust.

EVERY firearm I have shot gets cleaned and Lubed before extended lockdown.

If i have several dirty , it might be a couple days before I get to them all tho.

(My "house" pistol always goes first )

Right now I shoot at least once a week. I still lube all my weapons for long storage in case I get too busy to shoot. hug.gif

Breakfree all the way....

All of my weapons are stored ready for use, which means clean and lubed.

Those in long term storage (years) get lots of CLP on the inside, Sheath on the outside and are in sealed airtight cases with desiccant.

My range guns are usually dirty and my working/defense guns are cleaned and lubed.

I breakfree CLP (w/ toothbrush) the bbl., FH, sights, pins, anything that is steel.

I keep all mine clean, lubed, at the ready.

For surface parts, I use the Break-Free "baby-wipes" It doesn't leave them wet, but provides some protection.

General practice for those near salt water environment - even if its a mile or more from the coast.

I don't use "CLP". I use oil. Any product that claims to do three things at once winds up doing none of them well. Bill T.

CLP.

Aluminium does rust. It doesn't create iron oxide; but it will oxidize and corrode. Oxidized aluminium looks like a white chalkly salt on the exterior of the aluminium.

Having said that, anodized aluminium is extremely corrosion resistant. You don't need to lube the receivers of your weapon. A light coat (not visible to the naked eye) of CLP maybe once a year is way overkill for just about anyone who isn't immersing the thing in salt water.

For comparison, I took a bare aluminium panel (cheap non-aircraft grade), sanded all the protective corrosion coating off of it, sprayed it in a 20% salt water solution twice a day for two weeks and at the end of that period you could have removed all of the corrosion in about a minute with some fine steel wool.

thats how I do it
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 7:42:21 AM EDT

I generally use RemOil. SPray a little and wipe it around...inside and out.
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 7:53:48 AM EDT
I clean all of mine after use, lightly RemOil them, and that's it. None of them are dripping anything when I put them away, nor do I tend to oil the exterior unless I've really dried the gun out with gunscrubber.

I clean them and wipe them down with CLP before putting them in the safe

I usually clean the same or next day for everything.

but when I'm doing 3gun I may clean after every other shoot.
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 8:14:58 AM EDT
About every 10 trips to the range, I'll give a gun a full bath, and oil the outside. But my guns are always put away with a light coat of clp. (and always whiped down with a rag after I take them out to fondle them)
