for those of you who are relegated to doing your gun cleaning etc., in one of the bathrooms, a word of caution: don't fumble around trying to reassemble your 12ga within several feet of the toilet. did a nice, thorough (time consuming) job of cleaning my 870 just now, and as i was reassembling the whole breech bolt/slide block/fore-end assembly the slide block slipped out of my hands and plunged straight into the toilet.

and here i was thinking i wouldn't have any potential rust issues in the desert...

Arrrgh! Next time close the lid before cleaning? I have to clean guns when the wife is not around as she claims the smell of Hoppe's #9 makes her "sick". But at least I don't have to do it in the bathroom! Lots of great places to clean guns - dining room table, kitchen counter, coffee table. Just not when you-know-who is in the house..... ("I'M THE MAN OF THIS HOUSE AND I'LL DO WHATEVER I WANT...if that's OK with you, dear?")

i hear 'dat. personally, i like the smell of hoppe's 9 up to a point. it can get pretty strong, but as long as you've got enough ventilation it's not an unpleasant smell. master bathroom is really mine anyway, as the guest bath is the one with the nice tub, so that's always been the one she preferred.

That was kind of my thinking as well.

again, no garage/work bench. master bathroom counter is the best space i've got. i could go out on the balcony, but that's awkward, as i don't have a solid work space out there, and i don't really want my neighbors knowing what i'm doing. dining room table, no. again, no garage = punt. punt = my fairly long bathroom counter.

Ok..at least put saran wrap over the can so nothing drops in there again! Just don't forget to take it off when you get done or you'll have a waterfall! LOL Or leave it on to prank her. :cool:

wait how did and why did handcuff fall in :confused:
I was working plain clothes and had my cuffs looped over my belt in the small of my back. Nature called and after I finished the paper work I stood up and heard "Klunk...Splash."
I will answer no further questions about this incident.
