Do you really need to clean your shotgun?
You’d be surprised that the answer is: “It depends.”
One 50-year veteran shooter will hardly ever clean his over/under. He’ll go shoot birds in Argentina with a dirty shotgun, spend a few days shooting 4,000 rounds or so — and just keep on shooting without a drop of Hoppe’s ever touching it.
Then there are shotgun owners with semi-automatics that need to give it a good cleaning every 300 rounds or so.
And then of course there are shooters who clean their shotguns after a few rounds of skeet.
What’s right? What’s wrong? Well, it depends.
