Understanding Firearm Cleaning and Preservation.
When to Clean a Firearm
9. Preservation of firearms depends upon proper attention at the right time, more than frequency of attention. Well stored firearms, even in tropical conditions can survive for more than ten years without damage as long as that initial cleaning and preparation has been carried out with knowledge and attention.
10.If humanly possible, always clean a firearm, especially the barrel, before the evening of the day on which it was fired, because as the temperature cools humidity condenses into a fine layer of moisture which will remain on the dry surfaces inside and outside your barrel.
Cleaning involves a certain amount of time and energy. Mostly at the end of an exhausting days hunting or competition when everyone is tired. Take a little time to plan your preserving operation as it is important that it should be reduced to the easiest, quickest, and cheapest method which ensures the best results are obtained.
