A guy I know is a big time Glock fan and we were chewing fat(talking aimlessly) and we got onto how often we clean our guns. I admitted I clean my guns after every trip to the range on my pool deck using gun scrubber aerosol and scrubbing out the innards and barrel with a brush that is caliber appropriate, then using a lube and preservative which gets applied to in the innards and barrel cleaner and preservative which gets applied to barrel. He says, "With my Glocks I just keep a tub of Diesel, some dishwashing gloves, and dunk that sucker, work the slide and drop the mag and the gunk comes running out, then I just put it through the dishwasher with a dirty load of dishes" or to some such extent. I know Glocks are sturdy guns, but I'd be afraid of not properly cleaning out the gun and the deposits in the gun that may occur because of the dishwashing detergent. I've also heard of folks using gasoline, Kerosene, Diesel, to clean out Cosmoline on surplus guns but to clean out regular guns, polymer guns no less(risk of dissolbing the polymer) for fouling and unburnt gun powder, is that right, wouldn't there be some long term worries about damage to the steel, finish, or blueing. Does anyone have any experience with using Kerosene, Gasoline, or Diesel to clean guns on a regular basis, wouldn't this not be dangerous because of fumes exposure but also wouldn't it damage the guns. I'm not up to trying it, even the Ruger P90 I've had for three years that gets fifty rounds through it a month still looks like the day my Uncle gave it to me because of my anal retentive cleaning habits.
