I don't see how my cleaning schedule qualifies as abuse. It's just a gun, dude. The Glocks work with total reliability, even after 3000 rounds. I could probably clean once a year and they'd still be fine.
As I posted earlier, I think some people put more wear on their guns cleaning them rather than shooting them. I understand the guy/gadget attachment to guns, but I just don't share it, and don't need to have sparkling guns to defend myself. I just need guns that work, and my Glocks work with complete reliability on the six-month cleaning schedule I use.
