Shotgun & Rifle Cleaning Tips

For many gun owners, a shotgun or rifle is a seasonal firearm. When the hunting season ends, the shotgun or rifle goes into storage, often for several months, until the next season starts and it then becomes time to remove the firearm from storage.

But your firearm requires protection even when it in storage as a case or cabinet is not sufficient protection for your shotgun or rifle. Corrosion can destroy your firearm if it's not properly stored.

It is critical to always clean your firearm's bore prior to long-term storage. Next up, be sure to scrub the action with a good lubricant-cleaner using a soft bristled brush like an old toothbrush.

Once the action is thoroughly cleaned, it is wise to degreasing it with a high-quality degreaser.  Follow that up with a light coating of high quality gun grease in all wear areas.

Your nest step is to spray the action with a dust coating of a quality water displacement product. 

When remove your firearm from storage, simply run a wet patch down the bore. Follow that up with a dry patch. Lastly, wipe it off.
