    Considering the steel cased stuff I put through it today I'm leaning towards cleaning it.

    I don't get the whole dick measuring "my gun hasn't been cleaned in X rounds".

    Fucking clean that shit, Nancy. Clean that shit every time you shoot it.

    i was like this for the first thousand rounds or so with my sig. after a while i came to understand that it doesnt have to be 100% clean to function 100% and now i just oil it + boresnake every so often and strip it when i get bored.

    See here Mary, it's not a contest to see how many rounds I can go without cleaning it. I clean my 1911 after every range trip. This pistol is not my pride and joy it's my beater.

    I've been that way for 12 years, I take pride in all of my guns being in top working order. All of my guns are potential life saving guns, and they're all my pride and joy :dunno:

    I see where you're coming from, but understand that my M&P is in perfect functioning order even when dirty as fuck. I'd not hesitate a moment to turn to it in a time of need.

    Fucking let that shit go. It's a gun, not a god damn piece of jewelry.

    No, they are not jewelry but they are tools. All of the tools in my tool-box get cleaned before they go back into the drawer. I like to keep my things nice so they stay nice for when I give them to my kids. Its like not changing the oil in your vehicle. It will work like that for a long ways past 3000 miles but when it locks up, you will prolly be 500 miles from home and NEED IT.

    I actually cleaned it right after I posted this. Took a little longer than it would have if I did it after every trip, but definitely not longer than total time of cleaning after every trip.
