Many of you guys know how new at this whole thing I am. I grew up around guns but didn't shoot at all as an adult until I bought my GP100 pretty recently. Of course I'm hooked and have bought a few others since then.
And I really have, I think, made great progress with my shooting. Each time I go I learn something new. I practice about once a week shooting something, and I think I get better each time even if it's just by a little bit.
But for the life of me, I can not get better at CLEANING MY STUPID GUNS!
Don't make fun of me. Everyone has a way to do it, people use different materials, products and techniques. I get what the gun shop guys say to get because they can tell me how to use the products. But I get home and I just SUCK at it. Takes me forever and I just don't feel like the guns are clean. I want them CLEAN, and I want to be able to do it methodically, knowing I'm getting the gun clean.
Not to mention the fact that I am nowhere near the comfort level of being able to break a gun down into smaller pieces to more easily clean it. Took the Remington 870 apart to clean the receiver and THAT took me a half hour to get back together. How many of you have 13 year old sons who can break down, clean and reassemble an 870 while they're playing a video game and talking on the phone with their girlfriend?
The GP, my single six, my Model 94, I'm terrified to take those apart because I don't want to be the tool who brings a gun to the shop in a shoebox because I can't put it back together.
I am offering a steak dinner and a case of beer to someone who can show me, on my guns, how to do this right.
