I am very erratic. I am anal about cleaning and once I clean a weapon, unless I shoot it, may not clean it again for 6 months. I do use very high quality cleaners and lube (mill Spec synthetic oil and grease). I also am weird about the ammo I carry. I rotate perhaps every year, use the old ammo for final practice/sighting after training with cheaper ammo.
Just an aside, probably weird to many… after I clean my weapon to perfection (in my mind) I will blow the whole thing out with an air compressor to “smooth out” any oils/grease, put in a magazine, rack and fire one round before putting it back inthe holster (I do replace that fired round). I figure it is the ultimate functional test, and seems sometimes the first round fired is a bit off base. So this “blasts” out any extra oils etc the compressor didnt get. Never had an issue.
Do you have any special cleaning habits? Suggestions?
