Hey Pastor P,

It took me all of about 3 minutes to decide to retire! No agonizing there. :-)

Don't like my posts asking about shotguns? Don't read em! (Unless, of course, you feel "compelled".)

All kidding aside, thanks as always for your advice.

There could be another explanation:

Is it possible that you like to "fondle" your guns but feel guilty about it so justify the fondling as cleaning?

I for one like to fondle my guns almost as much as I enjoy shooting them. It's common behavior, I'm sure everyone would agree. Right guys? .....HEY GUYS?

Where did everyone go?

The song this was in (Beatles) had a different context but I like the line:
Happiness is a warm gun (so keep it close, keep it warm )

Hey Manny, were you in the military? That's the only place I know of where they expect you to run a patch down the barrel and have it come out clean, before the weapon is accepted back in the armory....

No, but I grew up in the 1960s as a kid watching every conceivable WWII movie and television show, so that is probably where I got it from. :-)

Remember one scene where a marine boot had a patch come out with a little black on it during an inspection, and the DI made his sleep with his Garand rifle in his bunk.

You might try shooting powder coated or hi tek coated bullets. I don’t have any leading problems with them.

Wipe and bore snake thru the chambers after shooting, rod and brushes after a brick of .22 should do it.
