desertbikes: lurker, My thoughts on DJT never mattered & certainly don't now. He doesn't lead or represent my Party. Never did nor will. And since AZ changed the primary election laws, I'm re-registering as an independent. Republicans are as lost as the NRA & Moses O_o Dec 2, 2020 17:45:55 GMT -7

lurker: browning and garand spent a lot of time with uncle sam to make sure they weren't delicate, overly sensitive or picky eaters. Nov 29, 2020 11:31:45 GMT -7
desertbikes: Mil grade guns can go a long time between cleanings. I have a ex-marine bud that refuses to clean his guns. At least until they quit working properly ::) It's the "modern" designs that are most effected from lack of cleaning. Nov 29, 2020 7:22:45 GMT -7
lurker: at any rate, it's been so long since i've cleaned any of them that taking them down was tricky and back together was worse. but it's done now, i'm good for another year or so. ;) Nov 28, 2020 18:42:11 GMT -7 *
lurker: today... drumroll... i cleaned my 1911 and poly. poly cleans just like her older brother the garand. it's been literally years since i've cleaned 1911, and i've never cleaned poly, and they're just beginning to have ftf/fte issues. Nov 28, 2020 18:40:10 GMT -7
