While pondering RF’s question of the day yesterday it suddenly struck me: I had no earthly idea how long it had been since I’d last cleaned my carry gun. Not the smartest thing, since I basically rely on it to save my life if and when (God forbid) I ever need it. So out came the cleaning stuff in its dedicated toolbox. BTW, to answer his question, my preferred summer system is my trusty CW9 in an oh-so-comfy N8² Tactical Professional model IWB with a pair of cargo shorts (or ‘sharts’ as we pronounce it in here the STL), a sturdy belt and an un-tucked polo shirt…toter’s bliss. Anyway . . .
the kitchen’s now perfumed with a heady blend of Hoppe’s and Rem Oil and my heater’s as clean and smooth as Abbey Clancy’s inner thigh. While I only field stripped it (the gun, not the thigh), I was amazed by all the fuzz, lint and schmutz that had managed to accumulate from almost daily carry in just a few, er, months. As a result, I’ve resolved to be a better gun owner and cleanse my go-to gun once a month going forward. So ‘fess up – when did you last give yours a bath?
