Pistol Care & Maintenance
Learn how to protect and care for your investment.
Bring your pistol (unloaded and in a locked case- NO live ammo), cleaning mat, and cleaning supplies. Don’t have cleaning supplies? You can purchase them at the store. We will walk you through the steps of how to properly clean and maintain your firearm and discuss tips and tricks for keeping your firearm in top condition.
Maintenance and care are necessary to keep a handgun in good reliable and safe working condition. Handguns need to be cleaned to ensure accuracy, function correctly and to maintain a long lasting finish that can span several lifetimes. Ideally, your handgun should be cleaned after every shooting session, however, that may not be feasible depending on how often you shoot and how many rounds you send down the barrel.
Most gun parts are made of steel and are blued, case hardened, nickel plated or stainless steel. All metal parts need a light protective coat of oil to prevent rust from atmospheric conditions and to eliminate oils from your hands coming in contact with the surfaces by frequent handling. It is also a good idea to have a silicon cloth or a lightly oiled rag so that finger marks can be wiped off after the gun is handled.
