Why My Dad Cleaned His Guns WRONG!

If you do want to prevent wear and tear on your guns while promoting a butter-smooth slide action, though, there are modern products that can help. What is “gun butter?” I started using this (and thought of my dad when I did), and was amazed with the results. It’s good for all climates, works on all guns, and most importantly, repels carbon to keep your gun working great.
gun butter
Most of us started out with guns when we were young, and for me, that meant my dad was the guy who taught me to shoot.

(He was also the first person to teach me how to field strip and clean a handgun.)
His carry gun was a Beretta in .380, which was a neat little gun.

But now, years later, I realize I watched him clean it incorrectly every time!

That’s why I want to explain…
Why My Dad Was WRONG About Cleaning His Guns
Many years later, when I got into cleaning Glocks, I learned that you should oil them only very little.

Less is more, when it comes to modern handguns.

Yes, you need to lubricate them, but if you do it too much, you just gum up the works.

Well, my father was fond of a product called “slide grease,” which he lathered on the slide of his Beretta in big globs, thinking it was doing him a favor.

Turns out, all he was doing was risking a jam!
You should lubricate your guns, but with the least amount of oil possible, to prevent jamming (especially when the temperature changes).

(I remember reading an article about the Walther P38 that said in the cold of the Russian winter, the gun oil froze and German troops had to reassemble their guns without oil for this reason, to keep them from locking up.)

One of them is called “gun butter.”

It’s also great for long-term storage… and it’s made in the USA.

If you don’t use gun butter, that’s okay too (although I love the stuff).

Just understand that when you do lubricate your firearms, use the least amount possible, and you should be good to go.
