    I used 4 different rifles for my hunting this year,, Lots of work to clean them up....

    Was wondering,, do any of you have any techniques for getting other people to clean them for you??:big_smile:

    My Grandpa use to take me hunting when I was a kid and he always "let" me clean the gun when we got in for the day. I looked forward to it then and I still do now. I inherited his guns when he passed away and they still look great. Catfishjon

    i agree with Richard no one but me cleans my firearms. cleaning my guns is like geting to know that firearm. i know every inch of every gun i own, if something fails its no ones fault but mine

    Old habits are hard to break. If weather is bed,wet,snowy or such I wipe my down the evening of the hunt. Once hunting season comes to an end they all get striped down cleaned and lubed. Guns are tools and if cared for properly they will last a life time.
