I spent about 3 hours cleaning guns last night. I did not know that they could get so nasty. I thought that my husband had it easy all he had to do after a shoot was to clean a few guns. But I now know different.

No not really, Up to this point Don has been a good husband and cleand them. I just think that he needed a little help doing it. But I don't think you wife would agree with you.

I hire my cleaning out to a little old lady that lives down the way. I give her a fifth and let her go to town.

O.K. I'll admit it. I only clean mine every couple of weeks of shooting, or if they start to cycle weird, whichever comes first. I don't know if it's really necessary. I know accuracy freaks that never clean and I know people that clean every couple of shots. Seems wierd to me. I've never let them get as nasty as some I've seen at fun shows though...... Yuck.

Thank you, I have not been referred to as a hottie in a very long time.

I always help my husband clean rifles or pistols after shooting. Our motto is if you shoot it clean it. I also think that a weapon that has been properly maintained will last longer, is safer and will be more dependable. We have spent too much money on our hobby of collecting and shooting to not take care of them. [thinking]
