I rarely clean my range guns if shooting on a regular basis and then only if cycling becomes sluggish.
Barrels only get chambers cleaned not the bore ala Schuemann info.
My IWB EDC gets a light wipe down every couple weeks due to sweat from the Arizona heat.

I wonder if some of you disassemble and clean your car’s engine after every trip the the range, too.

Most handguns are designed to need no more than just a little oil to operate. Thorough cleaning is only needed when there’s significant buildup that impacts performance.

Older guns prone to rust need a little more attention though. And some high performance competition guns can be finicky.

Most of the frequent cleaning is about cosmetics, which is understandable, but it’s not necessary. And I say this as someone who enjoys cleaning while watching a game or something.
