Would you please post a (definitive) Praxis report on how to clean a weapon? I can field strip and run patches, but am I using the right cleaners? Patch size? Dry lube? Finishing lube? Wood care? The Forums of Babel are uselessly over-opinionated, so I appeal to you sir.
There are many ways to make love to a woman. The same goes with firearms. The only good thing is that most firearms are not as fickle.
As with women, much depends upon the type of firearm. Each has its particular needs. If you have an AK, for example, and use corrosive ammunition, you're going to need to use soap and water (a little ammonia never hurts and urine is a good field substitute) and pay particular attention to scrubbing the head of the gas piston (and don't forget the handguard tube). Pipe cleaners are required for the gas port.
On an AR system, you would never stoop to such crudities.
For my M14S clone China Doll, she seems to prefer Sweet's to kill the copper fouling. Others think this is an awful waste of money. To each his own. So I would say, if you would let us know what weapons you will be cleaning, we can perhaps come up with a praxis to suit you. Mindful, as I said, that each weapon is like a woman with her own particular needs.
