What do you think about when you're cleaning your handgun?

Besides when to slip a clean patch on the loop or jag?
Clean enough guns and the physical part becomes automatic, freeing the mind to roam.
Where do your thoughts roam whilst under the influence of Hoppe’s or similar?

I’m dreaming about tighter gun control laws, so I don’t need to clean them anymore…
:no_mouth: :face_with_raised_eyebrow: :zipper_mouth_face: :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :crazy_face: :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: :joy: :rofl:

But seriously… I usually watch movies during cleaning process, so I don’t have any particular thoughts.

This has potential of becoming an epic topic/string.

  • Good thing I’m wearing a mask
  • Glad I found this unscented cleaner and oil
  • Is this stuff as good as the product I used before?
  • I like this song
  • Let me point it in that direction
  • Let me check again to ensure it ain’t got a round in the chamber
  • If only I can clean my home just as good
  • Ahhhh, this non-alcoholic iced cold beverage is so refreshing

I’m, honestly, pretty checked out. Mostly listening to music and fending off various pets who want to donate their hair to whatever project I am working

Blatant rip off.

How much I love Birchwood Casey Gun Scrubber. How I love that it’s nice enough to be outdoors if I’m using said scrubber…
How I’m disturbing the birds at the feeders if it’s cold out and I’m just stepping out to blast an action with said scrubber.

ACK OMG @Jerzy is a gun controller, quick hide all of our brilliant pro 2A posts.

Oh some of those pro 2A posts are his.

Well I’m freaking out he said he was a gun controller, if you will look at my quote.

Oh, it’s out of context you say

But my feels are hurt

Oh I told people’s eff your feels, so I’m being a hypocrite

But I am a special unique snowflake.:snowflake: :revolving_hearts:

Now that looks like a fun gun to be in control of @Jerzy . Though I’d settle for an m240:)

I usually listen to podcasts or occasionally watch a movie or tv show while cleaning so no deep thoughts going on here unless the topic of what I am watching or listening to sparks one.

Interesting question, but simple to answer. What I’m thinking about when cleaning my handgun is, “cleaning my handgun.”
