I like to put on some music, but not the radio. An adult beverage is always welcome too.

I clean in total silence. I don't like to be distracted by anything. I even shut off the ringer on the phone. Concentration is key to my way of thinking. If I'm distracted, I could screw up something. That could lead me down the road of disaster.

When I'm outdoors I prefer the (relative) silence. Indoors I usually have a ball game on (baseball or football, season depending). Either way I prefer not to have other folks present. The very ritual of breaking the guns down, cleaning & reassembling is my version of meditation.

I like to work in quiet - my mind keeps me company.

I got to have some sort of background noise. Depending on my mood, I may crank up some Judas Priest or Metallica, or maybe a bit of Pink Floyd. Just depends.

After all "the noise" at the range I prefer to clean in silence. I don't like to be distracted arounds my guns even if it's just to clean them.

I believe I read where another member mentioned it was good meditation, I echo that!

I leave the TV on while cleaning guns so I can listen to the news. I actually clean in a different room than the TV sits.
