    Gun Cleaning

    I went to the range and put about a box of 50 bullets down the range with my Sig p250. I took it home and took it apart and cleaned the gun. Since then I haven't shot it but I took it apart a couple days later and my gun looked dirty again including the barrel, it's like I never cleaned it. Is this normal? I carry it a lot and don't know if it'7s from me moving the slide on the gun is causing it. Any info will be appreciated.

    if you want your pistol to keep that glossy , fresh cleaned look, put it in the safe and leave it there..... your carry weapon is going to be exposed to dirt and dust and grime and sweat and body oils..... its totally normal..... i carry my p6 every day, i wipe it down with a dry cloth when i put it to bed each night, i field strip and wipe it down every few weeks and lube it..... thorough cleaning when i shoot it.... stop worrying about your new gun unless you take a mudbath with it strapped to your hip

    I am aware that a gun is going to get dirty let me clarify what I'm trying to ask because you seemed to misunderstood my question or i wasn't detailed enough. I came from the range cleaned my gun it appeared to be clean, a couple of days later I took it apart and the barrel and the inside of the gun looked as if I took it to the range because there was what seemed to be a little bit of gun powder in the barrel and frame. so I'm just trying to find out if this is normal or do I need to do a
    better cleaning.

    If it looked dirty after a couple days one of two things may have happened. The first cleaning you did wasn't thorough enough and the solvent/oil (Break Free, FP-10, Kroil etc.) you used eventually lifted the caked on fouling which is okay, just clean it properly and keep checking it. The other thing that can happen is that if you live in a very humid environment the humidity will be absorbed by the fouling and start corrossion. It was only a few days so I would doubt any damage occurrred if this is the case.

    Get a bore snake, I use them in between cleanings to keep the barrel free from obstructions.
