    Part of owning a gun is gun cleaning and lubrication, as guns are machines and therefore need a bit of maintenance to function correctly.

    I clean all my guns every month. My wife's and my carry guns get cleaned every Sunday afternoon.

    I enjoy the cleaning and mostly it's not a deep clean. Just a thorough check, a quick boresnake through the barrel, light oil and checking function and fit it only takes me 5-10 minutes per gun. I have a specially accessible bag and kit just for the quick cleans.

    After shooting each gun gets a thorough cleaning.

    I don't buy the crap that you don't need to clean you gun.

    I clean my gun every time I shoot it. If its been more than a couple of weeks it gets a light going over.

    I clean range guns after every use, I clean my carry weapon once a week weather I use it or not. My BUG, which is pocket carry, gets checked for fuzzballs daily...

    I only clean my CC handguns after firing them. There's no reason to clean them if they are not fired, but, after a few weeks, I will re-oil them if it is needed.
