About 200 rounds through the 10/22 which is below average for me. I usually shoot 400+ because it's fun and cheap. And 75 rounds through my CZ which was really fun. I think that is my new favorite gun. Total tack driver. Dimes at 50yds. and half dollars at 100yrds. I'm getting better every time I shoot that beast. When I take my AR I'm good for about 200 rounds depending on what else I brought. So that's about 450-500 rounds a day. I think those numbers could go either way for a light cleaning. I always seems to get a lot of yuck on my mops and patches and towels.
Sounds like a fairly solid range trip regardless of rounds per gun. I still would've cleaned them all in my OCD. The PC9 would have gotten a complete disassembly and thorough cleaning. They seem to get disproportionately dirty relative to other guns, or at least mine seems to.

A four foot folding table like https://www.staples.com/Staples-4-Fo...hoCZbwQAvD_BwE

And a plastic tool box similar to https://www.lowes.com/pd/CRAFTSMAN-D...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

Can do the trick. Easy to clean and stores almost anywhere.

Also, I don't belive anyone who has said they like cleaning guns or it's relaxing. Not a single one of you has offered to clean *my* guns for extra fun/relaxation. Also, my fridge toilet and dishes need to be cleaned and you must love plumbing and diapers.

You are lying. Probably to yourself.

Has the Sharp Shoot R brands Wipe-Out or Patch-Out solvents fallen out of favor? I miss glass bottles of Hoppes #9 with the benzene and other good stuff.

Nope.

Cleaning toilets and washing dishes is NOT relaxing.

Working with almost any kind of machinery is. Decades ago I used to do all of my own vehicle maintenance because I was a junior enlisted person and had a family and no money. Now I could easily pay someone to do it, but I do it for fun because I work in a secure lab with no windows most of the day, so working with my hands instead of my head is a nice break.

When I was a kid I used to take things apart and put them back together for no reason. Sometimes I still do. That's most of the 'work' involved in cleaning a firearm.

Changing oil, brake pads or cleaning firearms is a relaxing weekend afternoon.

I'll volunteer to clean yours if you let me borrow them. It'll be extra fun/relaxation after I shoot them.

Back in my youth , I liked cleaning guns . Even now , it's not bad , I'm just expressing more realism about how much and how often is necessary , along the lines of more guns prematurely worn from over cleaning than from shooting .

But I'll bite . If you have something new and interesting * to me * that I haven't encountered before , I'll clean it ( and take it pretty far apart to see how it ticks ) .

Dishes , toilets , etc are begrudgingly necessary , not fun to clean . Plumbing often seems interesting beforehand , but not after Murphy strikes part way thru .

Hah, i enjoy the cleaning part of a range trip as well. (yes i do camo556 ). For me it was part of the time i spent with my father growing up. I've had my grands doing it with me now.

For many firearm types simply throw a soft clean wood block on the floor - range deck and have a Work/ cleaning rod handy.
Place the arm, muzzle down on the block and wipe/ clear bore as necessary. Look into the breach- prevent crown damage- have your maintenance done without causing unnecessary wear or damage.
