3 Essential Steps to Gun Cleaning & Storage

Unload the Gun

GunsBefore starting the cleaning process, it’s best to unload your firearm for safety reasons. You should point your weapon in a secure direction, remove the ammo, observe the chamber, verify the feeding path, and examine the bore. Experts also emphasize checking the barrel for bullets even after you take the magazine out.

Follow Proper Cleaning Instructions

Cleaning instructions can differ from one manufacturer to another, so it’s important to learn about the specific directions for your weapon’s make. In general, gun shops recommend starting the cleaning process from the bore and moving toward the muzzle. Using a special cleaning solvent ensures thorough removal of gunpowder and other debris from the barrel. Lightly lubricate the weapon and polish the handle once the inner components are completely cleaned out. 

Ensure Safe Storage

The detailed cleaning process won’t be effective without making proper storage arrangements for your prized firearms. Investing in a gun safe is the best way to keep them locked away and out of reach of children. These secure gun cases are designed with tamper-proof materials and offer a safe and secure storage option for your weapons.
