I shoot my BH mostly & clean it about ever 500 rounds as the bullet lube tends to make removal of the base pin difficult after that.

Once there shot they get cleaned, every Christmas time they come out of the safe, wiped down, re-oiled and put back to sleep.

When in doubt shoot...then reload...

I only clean my guns after I shoot them; every time.

Many times when I can’t get out to shoot, I pull out a firearm I haven’t used in a while and go through the cleaning process on this already clean gun.
This usually reminds me why I bought it and stimulates me into using it again.

I usually fire black powder in my NV’s, BP cleans up so much easier and faster than nitro powder fouling.

Mine're all wiped down after each range session, 20 rounds or 120, makes no difference...and as my range here on the farm is just out the back door, that makes it easy...and I do brush/wipe out the bores as well, with the exception of my .22's. Those that are rifles get their bolt faces wiped down with a toothbrush, but I never brush nor wipe them out until accuracy tapers off. The pistols, however, need a brush out to keep the cylinder gunk under control, and I push a nylon brush through the bore as well.

Old habits for sure, but I've never had a gun malfunction due to crud build up either. Rod
