How Often Should I Clean My Handguns?

How Often Should I Clean My Handgun?

This is a great article by Bob Campbell on the Shooter's Log at Cheaper than Dirt.

The more I test and use handguns, the more respect I have for the operating reliability of these machines. Tolerances held by Kimber, Colt, Glock, Ruger, Smith and Wesson, SIG, and CZ are excellent.

 I DARE you to read this. I BEG you to read this! But, be forewarned, there is something here to offend everyone. Heck, I am offended. Please don’t hate me when you are done.
