    This is pretty much my cleaning routine...

    Let's see. I shoot a match once a month, or the square range. I shoot Handguns only; Glocks and a Ruger LCR as a BUG. Generally clean after each session, unless it's less than a hundred rounds. For a long class with 600-700 rounds a day, that night, no matter how tired I am. I'm pretty fastidious about my carry gun.

    CLP is a mix of Hoppe's or whatever free sample I picked up lately. Lube is Slip 2000 EWL. Sometimes Mobil 1 in a pinch lol. Maybe a teeny bit of grease on the connector to trigger bar. I do have a couple small 2oz needle oiler bottles I ordered that are pretty handy. Procedure is per manual.

    I have a motley collection of old towels cast off from SWMBO, a cleaning rod, a brass jag, a patch holder, set of Tipton brushes and picks, and a buncha 2x2 cotton squares I buy by the bag at Amazon. I like the picks with a cotton square wrapped around, to pick out the rails and ejector. (I don't have much BTF on my Glocks but prefer it clean.)

    Every once in a while I will take the Glocks completely apart, blow the frame out with non-chlorinated brake cleaner over a 5 gal bucket, clean the innards, then put it all back together, lube and assemble. But usually just a basic field strip and clean, normally, which takes five minutes at the most.

    I like

    It cleans, lubricates, and protects.
    Smell good too - like citrus.

    Breakfree CLP, Liberty Gun Lube, or Weaponshield. I also have some white lithium grease, but I rarely use it.

    Sonic Cleaner with Ballistol Milk

    I use a sonic cleaner with Ballistol 10% and water 90%. Some times use Honady One Shot. But will take a bottle of the Balistol Milk and dip the gun in a tub with it or use a spay bottle.

    Leaves a very fine Super Slick coating that does not harden. Also leaves magazines very slick. Some say too slick or slippery. Another reason I like modular guns. So easy to clean trigger parts etc.

    Oh yeah, range guns don't get cleaned any sooner than 1K rounds since last cleaning. If I cleaned every 100 - 200 rounds, I'd be cleaning every single day almost.

    CCW guns get cleaned a lot more often but not after every use.
