    ...how to take apart some of there guns. I have a bunch of diffrent guns and I shot some that I haven't taken out inawile. So I went to clean them and couldn't remender how to take them down ( acoulpe of old pistols from the 1910's and the 1940's) I had to go on the web and find sites to remember how to take them down. Just wondering if this has happen to anyone else. I guess memorys do fade over time.

    It happens more often when you have a lot of different guns and some don't get used very often. I decided to buy a couple of disassembly books so that it doesn't happen again.

    With me it's the mini 14, and the bolt out of my Ithaca 37. They say the first thing to go is your memory :eek:

    This is why al-Gore invented the internet, to help us clean our guns.

    I have a Ruger .22/45 that I had to actually open the instruction manual (GASP!) the first time I tried to take it apart.

    The instruction manual is for after you have the parts all spread out and have tried for an hour to put things back in place, it's not the first thing you do!:banghead:

    For pistols, get yourself a machine parts washer...lots on eBay; an air compressor from Sears; and you now have an "easy" gun cleaning station!

    Mineral sprits, Hoppes #9, or whatever...ideally you field strip after removing the grips; toss everything into the strainer, turn the washer on, watch the little bubbles! When done and drained, blow-dry! Occassionally, I'll be too lazy to even field strip, just toss it in (NO REASSEMBLY NEEDED)...when I' don't get to clean my pistol...I just OIL it up more!!! (don't tell my gunsmith)...:D
