    I don't think that would work for me. Why would I want to do maintenance on my lights and RDS on Christmas Eve? Seriously, picking a date like that is a good idea. I'll have to find another important date.

    I don’t disagree with the idea that modern firearms can tolerate being dirty, but just how dirty is highly variable from one person to the next. So, my poll isn’t really about how dirty, but when you choose to clean it.

    I’m switching to cleaning before I go to the range because I’d rather have a slightly dirty gun that I know functions, rather than a clean gun that might not if I broke a part or screwed up reassembly.

    As soon as I get home from the range,especially if I'm using corrosive Yugo ammo.

    All boating accident jokes aside. I usually clean them every shoot. Or at least every other.
