I came across this on a blog the other day:

OK.  Glock alert.  Here’s yet another reason why I love my Glocks.  I believe that if you give a lazy man an easy job, they will always find an easier way to do it.  And that is indeed the case when it comes to cleaning my Glocks.  Are you ready for my dirty little secret of cleaning guns?  I put them in the dishwasher!

Yup, you read that right.  I put them in, all by themselves, with no soap or detergent of any kind.  I let them run through a complete cycle and then oil them up afterwards while I’m watching Desperate Housewives or The Closer.  Now you know my “dirty little secret” when it comes to cleaning guns.

If she is serious, I’d be willing to bet she doesn’t use WOLF ammo.  If she does, she would likely have to pour a quart of CLP in the detergent reservoir to see any results. :P

m4 carbine Afghanistan

If you have been watching the news or reading any of the online forums lately, it would have been hard to miss all the talk about the M4 carbine and its “failure” in Afghanistan.

I had a number of thoughts on this topic and had a draft written up for an article I was going to post, then I saw a new post on the topic at Vuurwapen Blog which I will quote a few lines from ( because I agree 100% with them ):

I’m always a little suspicious when I see claims of M4s going down in combat.

One of the biggest problems is when Soldiers and Marines try to use their rifle in a manner other than that which was originally intended.

Unfortunately, an incorrect thought process persists among many officers and senior enlisted – that the rifles should be scrubbed clean as often as possible, and that oil should not be added to the weapon, for it will “attract dust and dirt”. Soldiers and Marines have been dying because of this absolute garbage since the introduction of the Garand in combat operations in the Pacific during WWII. Proper lubrication is vital for any semiautomatic or automatic weapon.
