Now I don't know about you, but I don't really like cleaning my house. Scrubbing toilets, washing dishes, mopping the floors. It's just not for me.
Unless of course it's my car. Or my guns.
When it comes to my guns, I'm almost fanatical about keeping them clean.
It relaxes me.
Plus, as each pistol and handgun is restored to near pristine-condition, it's just a satisfying feeling.
You know your gun is in prime, working order, and should you ever need to rely on it you know you will be able to. Today, I'm going to cover what I believe is one of the most important, yet overlooked, topics when it comes to firearm use.
Actually, keeping them clean.
Because every, single time you fire your gun, contaminants start to build up.
In the barrel, in the chamber.
In almost every part of your gun fouling agents accumulate.
Burnt carbon, copper casings, even the lead of the bullet all leave tiny traces of residue inside your gun. Let it build up enough, and your gun is going to foul, misfire or simply not function.
And that's a scary thought if you're relying on your gun to protect yourself.
But it's not even the most surprising part. For many of the gun owners I speak to, it's amazing at just how infrequently they clean their guns. Some people have never cleaned their firearm.
That's crazy. Then they start telling me about how unreliable a certain pistol is, or that their gun isn't good because it no longer functions correctly and all I can do is laugh. If you're not cleaning your gun on a regular basis, of course it's not going to work properly. That's a simple fact.
So, do me a favor.
Take a look at your gun. Get it out of the gun safe you're keeping it in and have a good look.
If on the outside you can see grime and other build-up, it's safe to say it's well overdue for a good clean. In the military, I probably spent almost the same amount of time cleaning my guns as I did shooting them, and I believe every gun owner in America needs to learn this art.
And that's what I'm going to teach you in this guide. Read on to discover how to keep your guns in pristine working order, so you can always rely on them.
