At the Range: How to Clean a Handgun

September 8, 2020

One of the most important parts of owning a firearm? Cleaning your handgun. In this episode of At the Range, Eric Lewis explains the ins and outs of how to clean a handgun with hoppe’s and the importance of doing this.

After a day of shooting with the Beretta 92X it’s so important to come back to give your firearm a good run through so it runs and functions properly, taking good care of your equipment.

Always ensure your firearm is unloaded before handling it.

When looking for high quality cleaning supplies, Hoppe’s Bore Snake CLOP All-In-One is great to help clean your firearm and break down carbon build-up. Similarly, if you’re using long range rifle or precision firearms, Hoppe’s newest 9 Black four-step cleaning process does an incredible job when you’re trying to get your gun as clean as possible.

For newer handguns, make sure to always go through the manufacturer’s manual to make sure you understand the mechanics of your gun and can safely take it apart and put it back together for the cleaning process.
