..if I didn't own firearms..
« on: May 12, 2019, 11:27:11 AM »
.
if I didn't own any firearms.....I wouldn't have to clean the sons-of-Bs !

I hate cleaning guns and I've got 7 pistols laid out to be cleaned - I'd "almost" rather go out and do some weedeating - almost

but I'm just gonna let the "not-so-magnificent 7" just lay there, on the cleaning table and wish for better days.....

If I didn't own firearms........I could probably afford to buy that Ferrari I want....Maybe!  :wave1:

Seriously, I'd rather own the guns than a Ferrari. I couldn't use the Ferrari to it's true potential, but I can with my guns. So I'm content, and life is pretty good. :th_thicon_idea:

“If I didn’t own firearms...” WTF question is that? Haha, it’s like “If I didn’t have children...” both would end with something like “my life would be very boring”

To me cleaning them is relaxing and I enjoy it.
Sit down and get to know them a little better.

Unlike alot of folks however I am not one of the ones who is afraid of a dirty gun.

Ill usually run um at the range 2-3 times before I really worry about cleaning um.

If it wont function dirtied up a bit what good is it. May come a time when you wont be able to clean um after every use. Nice to know they can and do work dirty.

Seriously, I'm sort of indifferent about it. Don't hate it, but not something I love to do either. It's just something that is part of owning and caring for something I have money invested in. Like cleaning up tools and the mess I made during a project or repair. Just part of the procedures of getting the job done. Gun get dirty from shooting, and part of proper care and maintenance is cleaning them afterwards.

If I hadn’t gotten into guns then my old car would have been running years ago. But that car probably would have gotten me into trouble...

Well if I shoot them then they come home to be cleaned.  Always.

Same however I will admit I do sometime wait a day or two before doing so.
And of I know Ill be back on the land the next weekwnd and plan to shoot same gun(s) (which is often the case with the 22s) I will got two or three weekends before Ill clean um.
As Ive said before I am a firm believer in knowing my weapon will reliably function all yukked up. You never know when you may need it to do just that.

I would have rather cleaned guns than wash my truck!  :wave1:

Much prefer to wash the mustang over the F150 4dr for sure.

And I tend to treat the truck as well a truck aka utility vehicle it tends to have some dirt on the outside. I do however keep the interior clean. Hate trash in a vehicle.

I heard if you shoot them enough and frequently you never have to clean them because the dirt doesn't have time to stick.....



(Well it sounds good when you first hear it, for about 1/2 second)

I dunk all my ammo in Dawn dishwashing soap. That way they get cleaned while being shot! :wave1:

Well, it sounded as good as your theory!  :rocknroll2:

1 cleaned, 6 to go

cleaned my Wife's LCR .357mag and loaded it with .38spec - it's her truck's center console weapon so thought I'd best get'r'done and put back (in case she should need it, sometime)

(the other 6 are just sittin' there - lookin' at me   :help:)

Well I haven't shot any of mine in so long that I now have to clean the dust off of them. :th_thicon_lol:
