Don't forget to shine up the firing pin and casing extractor too. You wouldn't want them to leave those ugly scratches, grooves and marks an your brass either.

A single pass with a stainless cleaning brush will leave a bunch of fresh scratches.
(don't use stainless on a barrel you like...)

I would worry more about the "fingerprint" on the casing than on the bullet. If a BF database were a reality, then the criminal could just grab a handful of (your) fresh casings you left at the range and drop them at his crime scene. You're in big trouble until (if) they recover a bullet that is proved not to match your barrel by test-firing. However, the scenario where your gun is stolen and used in a crime, with recovered bullet markings matching the BF in the insidious database, is also a concern, but less likely.

so, liberally sprinkling LEO range casings about DC would be a good thing[TM]?

Good reason to stick to wheel guns. ;)

Toothpaste is way too abrasive to be using on a gun.
Use some jeweler's rouge and a Dremel polishing tip.

Soft Scrub & Liquid Comet would be good too...:D

Looks like we need an immediate Federal legislation to ban the manufacturing, importation, selling, transfer and possession of tooth paste.
The American Dental Association (formerly know as HCI = Huge Cavities Indeed) will love this.
But most likely it will not be popular with AGS (Americans for Gum Safety).
I will not oppose such legislation because I brush with baking soda.

just go out and shoot the darn thing like it is intended. You can run a couple hundred rounds thru it in 30 minutes and if you stay at the range like I do, 2 hours, your BF will change while you are having fun. OTOH, it sounds like you have something to hide......chris3
