Whether this is your first time at the shooting range, or you’re a seasoned gun range visitor, there is a certain etiquette that comes with the territory. No matter what kind of gun you carry, you need to follow the rules. This list of gun range do’s and don’ts will be something you want to keep handy every time you find yourself at the shooting range.
Here at Big Woods Goods, we take pride in being both an expert in firearms and an expert in firearm safety, especially in a contained environment such as a shooting range. Do you have any questions about gun range etiquette that haven’t been answered here? Contact us!
If you own a gun, you must understand that it needs to be maintained on a regular basis just like any other mechanical device. Every type of firearm should be thoroughly cleaned and lubricated after each use in order to remain fully operational. You won’t have to totally disassemble your gun to clean it. Just follow these steps:
Make sure that the gun is unloaded before you clean it. Remove the bolt/lock and brush with a solvent. Proceed to clean, dry, and lube the bolt. Don’t forget to brush the extractor and ejector too.
Put the bolt to the side and move a cleaning rod with a bronze brush that has been soaked in gun solvent along the barrel to the muzzle. Only work from the breech/chamber end. Then repeat the cleaning if the barrel is extraordinarily dirty. It should now sit for 10 minutes so that the solvent can dissolve. It will also serve to soften up the bullet jacket, power fowling, and lead.
Move the solvent-laden bronze brush through the barrel a couple of times to loosen up the gunk. Run it through 10 times and proceed to run the cloth patch into the bore to press out carbon that lingers within the muzzle. Instead of pulling the patch right back out, remove it from the rod, insert a clean one, and pull the rod out of the chamber end. Repeat the process with the brush scrubbing. Generally, it takes 25 runs of the brush to properly clean a hunting gun.
Run a couple solvent-laden patches into the barrel and out of the muzzle. Be sure to replace with a clean patch each time; pull it back up and replace the patch again. Repeat until you are content with the patch’s cleanliness. While they might not ever be fully white, if they emerge black with some green/blue, continue to clean. You might have to soak the barrel, let it sit, and brush it once again.
While guns need oil, they won’t perform as designed if too much is applied. Once you’ve swabbed and scrubbed, the barrel and bolt will require a single coating of rust prevention oil. Take a clean cotton cloth with some oil and wipe down the gun metal as well as the wood stock. Take care to not place the gun in a sealed case for an extended period of time. Place it in a secure space away from the ammo.
Once you’ve cleaned your gun, head on over to Big Woods Goods. We have a gun shop as well as a state-of-the-art shooting range in the Holly Springs/Canton area. If archery is your thing, be sure to check out our archery range. We also have a gunsmith and a firearms academy. If it is related to shooting or guns, Big Woods Guns has it.
