CLEANING

Regular cleaning is important in order for your gun to operate correctly and safely. Taking proper care of it will also maintain its value and extend its life. Your gun should be cleaned every time that it is used. A gun brought out of prolonged storage should also be cleaned before shooting. Accumulated moisture and dirt, or solidified grease and oil, can prevent the gun from operating properly.

Before cleaning your gun, make absolutely sure that it is unloaded. The gun's action should be open during the cleaning process. Also, be sure that no ammunition is present in the cleaning area.


INSTRUCTION

During the Tuesday public shooting sessions, there are many knowledgeable members and range safety officers available for additional instruction, to offer tips, and help solve trouble shots. There is no fee for this help. We encourage you to ask questions! We think you’ll find the folks at Pahquioque Rod and Gun Club to be friendly, welcoming, and helpful. It’s a terrific place to shoot!
