    I like to keep a handgun in my truck. both of them, actually. Got plenty in the house, etc.

    My walther was in the center console of my truck, and my wife borrowed my truck for the day. Her and my son ran errands or something. Well, apparently they stopped at burger king to get Danny some breakfast, and he got the french toast sticks.

    I open my center console yesterday, to find something akin to a greek tragedy. Syrup everywhere. It looked like she tied a grenade to a maple tree, then stuffed it in my console. I pull my gun out, and it's covered in it. I had the magazine ejected, so if course there is syrup coating the inside of the grip, the firing chamber, trigger assembly, etc. It looks like my pistol fell into a stew pot full.

    I pull it out, grab everything else in the console, and go inside, ready to pistol whip someone. After a few minutes of going postal, I get this explanation.


    "Danny and I stopped to get him a snack, and I handed him the bag in the back seat. He opens both packets of syrup, starts eating the french toast sticks and hash browns, and then I notice he's getting it everywhere. I stop, he starts crying when I try to take it from him (kid's 2 1/2 btw), then we have to fight over the syrup, which is going everywhere on him. I put them in the center console so he'd knock it off, and I just forgot about them."


    She forgot about filling my truck with sugary dog puke, and leaving the open packets on top of my pistol.



    I'm still downstairs with a can of clp, about 50 patches, my cleaning kit, and 3 ruined rags so far. And I'm just done with the barrel and trigger assembly.

    well, question is why did you keep the handgun in your car while you were not in it?


    But that does still suck.

    Doesn't that defeat the purpose of having it? the P99 does not make a good hammer.....

    ANyway, for the syrup, you can alo try Dawn dishwashing detergent and warm water. As soon as you get the syrup off, rinse her good, and then coat it in your oil of choice.

    Dishwasher.

    I run all of my guns through it. Use the dishwasher, and then a can of Auto Carb Cleaner to dry it out.

    Just dissassemble it completely as you can, and put the small parts in the fork and spoon catch, and everything else on the top rack. Put in normal dishwashing fluid, and run the pots and pans cycle.

    Its also a great way to get Cosmoline out of Mosins and SKSs

    +1 for dawn and hot water. Works great. After that i use WD40 all over, let soak and then pat dry.

    I don't know why people are so afraid of water and guns together.

    Honestly if my guns can't make it through the dishwasher a few times a year to clean them out really well, then I don't want to trust my life to them.

    I've done the dishwasher before, I disasembled all of them at once last year and loaded up the dishwasher. They came out cleaner than when they left the factory.

    But with just one pistol, I needed something to do today anyway. So back to scrubbing I go.

    strip it, put all the pieces and frame in one of those cleaning machines that uses micro vibrations to agitate the solution that the parts are submersed in.
