Proper gun maintenance

If you decide to own a firearm you should be prepared for all maintenance duties that come with it. A gun should be regularly cleaned and lubricated to ensured that it works as it should. Not doing that puts you at risk of accidental discharge and gun malfunctions. If you care about your own safety and the safety of people around you, you will find time to maintain your gun properly. This short guide will show you how to do it step-by-step.

Prepare your workspace

First, you should make sure you have a well-lit space to work on cleaning your gun. Gun cleaning involves using harmful chemicals so this space should also be well-ventilated. The best place to choose is the outdoors but if you don’t have a proper work table in your yard then a desk by an open window will do. The surface you work with should be clean and free of any clutter. You shouldn’t use space that is used for eating because chemicals you are going to use can contaminate food.

Prepare your tools

The tools you will need to clean your gun include a cleaning brush, a bore brush, a cleaning rod, cotton swabs, and a soft cloth. You will also need a gun cleaning solvent. All of these items and more can be found in gun cleaning kits so you don’t need to purchase them individually. For lubrication, you’ll need gun oil. Here you can find out what is the best gun oil for gun maintenance.

Disassemble your gun

Unload the gun and check if the barrel is empty before you get to work to prevent any accidents. Disassemble the gun as much as it allows you – if you aren’t sure, consult the owner’s manual. If you don’t have one, you should be able to find guides on the Internet that will tell you how to handle your particular firearm.

Clean your gun

Now that you have access to all the internal parts of your gun that need cleaning, you can get to work. First, clean out the bore of your gun using a cleaning rod, a bore brush, and cotton patches. They will catch all the loose gunk that might be lodged inside the barrel. The cotton patches should be soaked in the cleaning solvent and then run through the bore a few times. Repeat the process until the patches are completely clean when taken out. Use wipes and the gun solvent to clean other parts of the barrel as well. Put the gun upside down to allow any leftover fluids and debris to flow out of the barrel.

Lubricate your gun

Lubrication is key for having your gun work smoothly and without hitch. Apply the oil to the cotton mop first – check what is the right amount by reading the gun oil’s label. Then, run the oil-soaked mop through the bore to lubricate it. Also, remember to lubricate all action components as well.

Polish your gun

Finally, wipe your gun exterior with a soft cloth. Gun cloths contain additional lubricants but if you don’t have one, any soft material will do (flannel is especially good).

Do these steps regularly to keep your gun in top shape.

The survival guide for living in the countryside

People’s lives take unexpected turns all the time, and while the common denominator today is living in big cities or at least reasonably developed communities, some other folks still live a more traditional lifestyle in the country, keeping up with age-old customs and work ethic that you simply have to experience to understand. Most modern people who have never set foot on a farm or a cabin in the mountains find themselves quite shocked with the radical change that supposes ridding oneself of all the commodities and technology that we take for granted. If for some reason you need to spend some prolonged time in the countryside, here we break down some useful advice to keep in mind before going through with it.

Consider the essentials

You need to think of the most absolute fundamentals like running water, electricity, and clean clothes, and then seriously consider if you’re willing to give up the comfort and readiness of those things. If you make up your mind and choose to go ahead, then great, because the countryside isn’t the absolute wilderness and you do have the chance to take a shower, wash your clothes, or charge your phone. Things are just done in a different, more rudimentary way that probably involves doing things you’d only heard your parents or grandparents talk about.

Be prepared for anything

In that sense, you need to be prepared for anything if you’re going to be spending some time away from cities and towns as you know them. Be ready to wake up at ungodly early hours to make the most out of the day, be on your feet a lot, walking everywhere, and cooking with the most basic ingredients you can think of. Taking that into account, make yourself a favor and pack a pair of work boots to avoid any incidents, or hunting boots if where you’re going is a legal hunting area. Other pieces of equipment like axes, gas cans, and tools in general are probably already at the place you’ll stay at if people live there.

Learn to appreciate the simple things

Despite how hard it might seem at first, spending some time in the countryside and even living there for extended periods of time can truly be a humbling experience. Learning the old ways of doing stuff and the craftsmanship involved in some of the most basic processes of daily life gives you a new perspective on things. Enjoying a freshly laid egg, a meal cooked with just wood fire, and heating water to avoid having a cold shower are experiences you will surely never forget. Just go at it with an open mind, and never forget that at one point in time, most people lived that way.

So there you have it, with these three keys in mind, no countryside experience will be too drastic and no culture shock too impactful. Hopefully, if anything regardless of the circumstances that lead you to leave the city for a while, you can embrace the slower pace of things and welcome the rural lifestyle with open arms.
