But cleaning your mechbox out every game? That's WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much.
Hey I'm unemployed, obsessive compulsive, have a lot of time on my hands. That and I'm just always more comfortable knowing my rifle is as good as the first time it fired completely cleaned and redone up. Keep hassling me and I'm never buying an SG556 from you :P
Edit: As well with dusty areas, muggy areas (forests) get a lot of gunk in my barrel (No smartass comments Styrak).
