The 1911 thread sparked this because my Springfield 1911 hasn’t passed my test that I do before I carry a firearm for CCW. So what do you do? Straight out of the box, put some HP’s in it and strap it on GTG? I bring it home, take it apart, and clean everything up and oil. 500 rounds total without cleaning in 3 sessions generally with the last 100 being the carry ammo. I’ll allow 1 failure in the first 50 rounds but none of my carry guns have had a hiccup. As said above my Springfield generally hits the 250-300 mark and the slide starts to slow cause a FTF. I know that may be a bit much but it’s what I started doing when I started carrying. Honesty 500 rounds isn’t a lot. That included lots of draws and reloads also. After the test my CCW is cleaned after every range session. Range guns I generally don’t clean every time. Quick wipe down and back in the safe.
