How often and what do you use to clean your concealed carry weapon?

I clean mine after every session at the range and wipe it down at least once a weak with a little lite gun oil.

Definitely after every range session.

Usually a little gun oil and a cursory inspection if no range time has occurred recently.

A thorough cleaning after the range and a wipe down every week or two.

Breakfree CLP to clean and lube and with certain weapons, TW-25B grease.

Using non-ammonia Carb Cleaner and Mobil One synthetic on the bolt carrier group on my AR, but that is another subject for another thread. -lol

LOL, so instead of having it secured in a holster, you just tie a long rope to the trigger guard and drag it behind your bike. :D
:funny :rolf :rolf

I do take good care of it. Even bought it a nice leather holster. Must admit that I don't always clean it religiously.

Clean it...when it needs it. Oil it...when it needs it.

That may be after a day at the range...or just from carrying it for awhile. I guess...basically...when I look into the chamber an it makes ME groan with disgust...it's time to clean it... ;)

I should clean it more frequently...but it has NEVER let me down...clean or dirty...

Cleaned after every shooting session.

Since I also carry it every day, if I think it's got too much lint or dust on it, I'll clean it again.

Any of you use a bore snake for non-routine cleaning?

I typically do that on my long guns and then when I do some range time, I clean with jags, brushes, and either blue wonder gel or breakfree.

I clean it once quick after the range, then a Good clean when i have more time if im bussy after the range. typically same or next day sometime. Sometimes just because im bored ill take it apart and get in all the cracks with my Q-tips lol. For some reason i actually enjoy it. Well, since its a glock it stays pretty clean looking, but im really weird about finger print's for some reason i whipe down all my bullet's and no interal part of my gun ever has a print on it, (use laytex gloves while cleaning).

Also never take it fully appart, just feild strip, use Q-tip's and Rem oil from wallmart. Oh and the cleaning rod that comes with the gun.

Its kind of gross but since i carry at 3 o clock, I also find that i clean it sometimes because some of the crusted deoterant falls into the magazine well and all over the grip lol. :eek:

Clean my G27?

Every three months or so, I'll empty the mag into a target, then refill the mag with clean ammo, and rack one into the chamber.

All done.

Hmmm.
I have not been to the range in 6 weeks. I always clean after my range time... I should be cleaning my SR9C every few weeks?

Holy grave diggers CW.
Six year old thread. Out back in the FCC cemetary?

I always make sure my guns are spotless. I do not want to shoot someone with a dirty gun and possibly have the wound get infected. I mean after all I do have a heart...

LOL. I recently moved and I just haven't been able to break loose and go to the range which is now about 40 miles away.
I dry fire a lot and I always look at my gun when I empty magazines. Work through my snap caps in it and so far everything is looked ok.
But I still feel guilty that I haven't cleaned it in six weeks

We run glocks,ar's,ak's, bolt rifles and 870's HARD every week. Lube is more important than cleaning. Too little is usually better than too much. But that varies with platforms. Run it till it feels sluggish... Get to know your gear. When it feels right, lube it, per specs with whatever you have. It's not real importantt what lube,although If you put some effort into it you'll figure out grease here, and oil there is better based on material similarities, etc.. do a righteous cleaning on the gun when lube no longer makes things better re: operations. ALWAYS FIRE THE GUN AFTER MAINTENANCE IF IT'S DAY TO DAY CARRY. This means maintenance at the range.

Has worked for me for a long time.
