    i try to at least give them a good wipe and oil after every range visit but i usually only detail clean them once or twice a month if its been a busy month.. i know some glock guys who dont really clean their guns often at all, if any. lol.

    After I shoot them they go home and get a complete clean. Safe guns that don't get shot get wiped down and checked about every six months.

    Duty weapon, every month cleaning and check. No matter what.

    not near as often as I should. I wipe down the guns that have not left the safe in a while every 6 months or so. but the ones I shoot often get neglected and only cleaned about every third time to the range or field. Carry gun gets it once a month (for lent and other pocket bugs).

    I usually clean mine once every other time I go shooting, unless I shoot alot of rounds then I'll clean it. My 1911 I cleaned every time, with the exception of once to check how it fed dirty.

    I do a complete cleaning every time when I am done shooting. I try to wipe down the stored ones every few months.

    My Mosins get cleaned whenever, as long as I don't fire corrosive ammo through them. I do clean them before and after any time I go hunting. My accurate rifles (K-31, .308 Tikka, AR-15) get cleaned after a range session/hunting always. I use a plastic brush if I have shot many rounds through them, but use only patches if I have only shot a few rounds. My 1911 gets cleaned every 100 rounds or so, and my M&P 9 gets cleaned every 500 rounds, I do put a little oil in it between cleanings. My .22s get cleaned throughly about every brick through them.

    Every time I shoot, it gets a thorough cleaning. and then about every 2 weeks for lint as it's my carry gun.

    man I love to clean my guns it is part of how I relax. I may not have shot a gun in years, but i will take it down and clean it when I clean the ones I have shot.
    I may spend three hours cleaning guns every other week. if I shoot some of them I will clean all of them. Just something I like to do. :p
