Never could understand why one would not clean and lube their firearms. See so much “influencers” post I pulled it straight out of the box and proceeded to fire X amount of rounds…..
Would you buy a tens of thousands of dollar car then proceed to run 100 1/4 mile drag runs without changing the oil or doing any maintenance? Then when the engine is shot, declare “this vehicle is no good, not reliable, the engine blew”
If a clean, lubed, and maintained weapon can’t finish a mag of hollow points, I think, would be a more valid and useful data point for the reliability and durability of a weapon.
I was always taught to keep my stuff as clean as possible.
