I had a little extra time on my hands today & started cleaning some dirty handguns that were in my safe. I really don't want to expound on how long some of them had been neglected but they are all clean & lubed now. (.22 10 shot revolvers are a pia to clean!) I cleaned several revolvers & two auto's. Granted, I live in desert country & my guns are stored in a safe but i was amazed at how there was no noticable corrosion or rust & the guns cleaned right up & look like new. When in law enforcement, I shot & cleaned my Sig P226 on a regular basis. Not only because of a possible firearm inspection from my sergeant but also because I wanted a dependable weapon. My question is; with todays modern non-corrosive ammo just how important is regular cleaning? Ironically, this is my first ever post.
