Gun cleaning might not be on the top of the priority list for most people, but it’s very important and should never be ignored. Especially for a gun you rely upon to save lives.
As mentioned in class, gun cleaning can and will allow you to maintain the firearms reliability and most importantly, to check for problems. When it comes to defensive firearms, you cannot accept anything less than 100% reliability and assuring the gun will keep running’ is the first rule of saving your life or that of loved ones!
Everyone in class will receive a 90-minute DVD with yours truly showing everything and anything for gun cleaning.

Holster, magazine carriers, and other equipment
Maintaining your handgun and magazines doesn’t stop there. You must be sure, on a timely basis, to inspect, clean and maintain all of your everyday equipment. Every single day, dust builds up.
There are many products made to help folks clean their guns and many have their favorites. My favorite is CLP – Cleaner, Lubricant, & Preservative. It is an all-in-one solution for gun cleaning. Apply it, let it penetrate, then wipe it off. DONE! Military has been using it for years.
One of the most important tools in my gun cleaning kit is a magnifying glass. A magnifying glass allows you to inspect critical parts to make sure the gun will work when it needs to work. I’ll show you what to look for in class.
Hoppe’s No. 9 Powder Solvent
Most people who know of gun cleaning, know Hoppe’s No. 9 gun cleaning products. I myself grew up with it and most gun cleaning kits are focused around Hoppe’s. I still have it and I do use it for specific purposes.
