    Bad advice Jim!

    Poor gun cleaning habits are natures way of dusting off the gene pool.

    "A gun is neither safe or unsafe by itself. It's a person and their actions that make a gun safe or unsafe," he said.

    Elmer's or Grade School Paste don't count. They should be listed as a food group.

    You look a little different from when I took your course 2 1/2 years ago. Must be the makeup (heh, heh).

    Seriously, I have always maintained that is is a physical impossibility to clean a loaded firearm. I'll leave the naysayers to their own devices, but what I mean by this is the fact that you cannot swab and brush the barrel or clean the internal parts when the gun is loaded.

    In June 2010, I received news that a man I had worked with was killed while cleaning his handgun. There is some sketchy info with this whole incident and the fact that he was former military make it even more sketchy. But he's dead and that was the supposed cause of death... from what I understand.

    Bottom line, clean your guns in some private and secluded location in your home and have nothing around to disturb you while you go about the steps in this process. Once a round is fired it can never be recalled, regardless of how it was fired.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Si vis pacem, para bellum.

    Why you need safety glasses? Check the gun is MT & off you go.
