Productive Day Playing In The Safe

We didn't feel like getting out for Tuesday movie day. So I thought today would be a good day to clean all the .22 rifles, well might as well clean the .35 Marlin and the little .223 Bushmaster, may as well clean the 3 shotguns since I had to move them to get the others out. Most of them had not even been out of the safe much less fired in a long time, most only took a quick brush and patch down the barrel.
I did rearrange some ammo and magazines in the safe better using the space, made a little more room very happy about that.

Good regular maintenance. You can go years without even moving such things, and then comes the memory gaps, and buy what you already have. A bad cycle, easily avoided.

Spring cleaning your guns is way better than mowing the lawn or blowing out leaves.

I'd trade places with you anytime Arland, I hit the gym then worked on cleaning out the garage.

I need to hit the gym and the garage could use a good cleaning but I don't see that happening.
The only thing that was stiff was my old lever action .35 Marlin but a few squirts of BreakFree on it and everything else and they were good to go.
