Maintenance and cleaning of one’s firearms are arguably some of the least talked about aspects of gun ownership. That said, they’re critically important, especially if you want your firearm to live a long and healthy life and to function when it’s needed most. Besides, a clean gun is a happy gun. A properly lubricated gun is a happy gun. A well-maintained gun is a happy gun.
