Why Clean A Gun?

Cleaning a gun is important for several reasons. First of all, it is a way to insure that your investment lasts for a long time. Regular cleanings can help preserve the materials that a gun is made of as well as keep things functioning the way they are supposed to. Guns can rust or break down due to a variety of different factors. They are also more likely to have issues if regular maintenance is not performed.

Safety is another key reason to clean a gun. In order for everything to work properly, the parts must be taken care of. This means removing any obstructions, cleaning the interior of the gun and, in many cases, lubricating and polishing the gun. Regular use and exposure to the elements, dirt and other debris--or even transportation can cause some wear and tear on your gun. Cleaning your firearm is something you can do to protect your investment, as well as keep it looking its best for many years to come.
