I'm not a big range shooter so actually, I'd say after a box of fifty or so with a handgun. I take these manic spells where I go on a gun cleaning binge from time to time. I do the same with knife sharpening.

There's no comparison between black powder and smokeless guns. BP needs cleaning every time they're fired, but that's centuries old tech. S/F....Ken M

If I have been on the range, firing, prior to leaving I will swab the barrel with oil an lube everything else. As I might get to it when I get home.

I took one of my manic spells yesterday and tore down 4 shotguns and cleaned them. Also, I hit up a couple Glocks.

My buddies 12 y/o is currently tearing down my Glock 10mm and hooking it up for me as Im watching some NASCAR action.

He put 20 rds through it today. Boy is in a single parent household. Cool kid. He was nailing some targets with the 45/70 yesterday. Kid aint afraid of shit. Not even a flinch.

That is quite a bullet for the 12 year old young man. Very nice.

I clean my G17 about twice a year whether it needs it or not. When I used to teach shooting a lot sometimes I'd put several hundred rounds a week thru it and not touch it for weeks. Glocks aren't pretty or sexy, but they're fucking tough.

I typically clean them after each range session. Sometimes a quick wipe and lubrication, if needed, a more thorough cleaning. What I don't get is these guys that think they are gunfighters because they never clean their weapons. Like its a some badge of courage. I know some guns need to be a bit gummed up, but going years without cleaning a weapon and then bragging abut it is irresponsible.

Field strip, bore snake & field cleaning after any range session.

I do have a couple I need to go thru that I haven't shot for more than a year.

Sure wish I could get my bride to clean my/her guns like she cleans up the rest of my shit.

I'd think that your location and how you store, would have something to do with the frequency of cleaning. A friend had a old glass front gun cabinet that he kept a couple of shotguns and an old .22. South Florida has high humidity and he apparently didn't leave enough oil on them as rust was all over. The rust didn't ruin the function, just the finish.

In this brief thread I've learned that there are those that clean only for function (which can be like a religious obsession), those who clean obsessively (which may seem like a manic episode), and those who clean for pleasure (which seems likely to become an obsession)....

Obsessions have a bad rap.

Actually, while in the military, at least for me, there was two types of cleaning:

1. To have it "inspection" ready, and
2. To have it serviceable.

Now, I clean it for serviceability and not Q-Tip clean for the clown shows.

Same here. Clean after range, lube lightly, and reload.

I had a O2 tell me my 79 smelled like carbon at one inspection... Every time after that for inspection, I rubbed some old spice on my stocks, just to be a dick. I also remember the tanks full of gas in basic with cordless drills and cleaning rods... Man, those barrels went to shit fast... I'm surprised they could still throw lead in the general direction they were pointed in.

SOTB used to say "Cleaning weapons is for boots." Miss his wisdom and wit.

pistola cleaning

Will clean the pistol I'm training on: usually, once a week (ie between 400-1,000rds). Will clean & re-silicone the mags weekly also.

Will clean it before and after a match. May actually clean the mags @ the match. Dependent on, what I drop them in/on.

Good shooting
