Do you guys take your guns to a reputable gun smith in order to get them serviced, checked and cleaned?
No, because im not a mechanically illeterate fucking retard.
I shit you not, I know of a police officer who goes to a gunsmith every month, to have his service weapons cleaned. These are his only weapons, and he only shoots them once every 8 or so months, a few rounds, to qualify.
There are some rifle-sized ultrasonic cleaners for getting anything and everything off a gun. Gunsmiths might have those...
But basic cleaning...I sure hope not. Then again, it would be good business for gunsmiths.
There are people who take their guns to a smith to be cleaned.
There are people who take their guitars to a music store to get strings changed.
There are people who take their cars to an auto shop/lube center for wiper fluid refills.
There are people who take their kills to someone else to be dressed.
The list goes on. And on.

I do take my guns to the gunsmith for proper deep cleaning and check-up.
Each year I grab my most used guns and take them to a guy that thoroughly cleans and checks for any problems.
All you guys are just jealous poorfags.
sorry, but sweet baby ray's brother already made the best bbq sauce.
>implying you know as much as a gunsmith or someone that has a diploma in those professions.
I do take my car to get the oil changed and my winter/summer tires changed.
Time is money, I prefer to pay someone to do it than to waste my time when I could be doing something else.
You are a lowest piss ant of a plebian if you buy that walmart tier crap
>time is money
you know what else is money? money.
it's faster and cheaper to just do your oil change at home than it is to drive your car over and have someone strip your drain plug and not change the oil filter you stupid motherfucker.
no, minimum wage employees at jiffy lube don't have diplomas in their profession, and yes, I do know a lot more about cars than them.
Nah, I was just joking. It's 4chan. You have to spice it up a little or you're a massive faggot.
I think it's okay. I've always been a head country and cattleman's fan. The rest of my friends swear by that stuff though.
If you needed to smother the meat in something to alter the flavor you obviously have shit taste.
Do you also eat ribs with a knife and fork, while complaining about Starbucks not serving you your coffee perfectly?
I surely hope you're not actually as autistic as you're pretending to be. I know lumbersexual and the art of manliness or whatever is the hipster thing to do these days, but jesus, dude.
>Be at a family dinner, just a simple thing.
>BBQ out back, coals working.
>Get steaks seasoned and on the grill.
>Salt, pepper, garlic, that is it.
>Add cherry, apple, grape and persimmon wood to the coals and put the lid on everything.
>Flip the meat and throw rosemary into the coals and do the same thing.
>Best fucking steaks you have ever had.
>Dad is impressed by me.
That sounds wonderful. I dry age mine, and throw them in the cast iron with some salt and sear the hell out of both sides. Melt a little butter on top, and add some garlic and pepper. Each that shit rare.
Stea/k/ thread now?
No. The only local Smith has banned me, because in casual conversation we talked and he found out I was friends with someone who was in a legal dispute.
He told me to get the hell out and, "if my buddy got out" he could do the work I wanted. I'm still baffled. Apparently I'm just as guilty by association. I didn't sperg out in front of him by any means.
Now that I think about it, before hand he muzzle swept the fuck out of me with a kel tec or some shitty pocket gun while I was telling him what I wanted done as well.
People that think any mechanic shop that gets the actual experienced mechanics to change their oil makes me lol.
That is the realm of first year apparentices.
Also I change my own oil and completely serivce my truck but have the dealer service my sports car because that is still under warranty for another year. Onces its out of warranty I will look after it myself.
Look after all my guns myself as well. Fuck paying someone to inspect them lol.
Only time a gunsmith is given my gun is when I am paying them to do something I cant due to lack of the right machines, like threading a barrel.
One day I will have my own lathe though and it will be gloroius. Shame I dont live in freedom land though so I cant make myself my own cans :(
Some gun shops will clean officer's guns for free, or at least let them use their facility to clean it themselves. All the shops in my area do, although there aren't all that many cops in my area either.
>Honestly that one's just laziness.
Bruh i live in a one bedroom apartment and don't exactly have room to process 90lbs of meat.
Want? Motherfucker, pulled pork without mustard sauce is like when your mom doesn't swallow. Yeah, it's still great, but that extra kick of vinegar at the back of the throat drives it home.
Sweet Baby Rays is baby tier BBQ sauce.
Dude, I'm a total less is more kinda guy when it comes to cooking/eating meat, but the first time I had some good mustard sauce I must have oozed a pint of pre-cum during the meal.
I clean my guns because I enjoy doing it. I take my cars in for oil changes because I don't enjoy doing them. I know how to work on vehicles to a certain extent, but I fucking hate doing it. I pay for a lot of stuff that I know how to do but don't like doing it in the slightest. I paid to have my laundry done prior to my girl moving in, because I found laundry to be the most tedious, mentaly draining activity next to mowing my lawn (which I also have done for me). I could see someone who loves shooting & loves their guns NOT enjoy cleaning them, much the same way that I love my clean, pressed clothing, but hate getting it to that point myself. Everyone should know how to do all of these things well, but if they'd rather pay someone else to do it, what the fuck is the problem?
>There are people who take their cars to an auto shop/lube center for wiper fluid refills
T-that takes like a minute to do at home
>letting someone else dress your kill
What kind of prom queen can't handle a little blood and guts?
Butchering is like 60% of the fun in hunting
>he doesn't use Three Little Pigs BBQ sauce
Who three fuck uses a gun smith anymore?
Only exception would be very old guns. Modern guns are designed to be worked on easily.
You can buy every tool you need online and watch youtube videos and save yourself hundreds of dollars.
My lgs smith vharges $99 to change out sights and $75 to change a connector in a Glock.
They have benches in and outside the garage and I watched them work.
They used hand tools for the the oil plug and filter.
I have no doubt that retards fuck shit up in some stores, which is why I watched.
I'm not rich but if I made like 200k a year and worked all the time then no doubt I would do shit just to save a small headache like have somebody else change my oil or clean my clothes.
Poorfag college student here.
I want to go and hunt me my own meat sometime, but don't have the space for the whole fucking animal. Can't I just dress it there, take what I need, and leave the rest behind?
Saw this at the store today, they had original and spicy.
if i should only buy one do i go with spicy or original?
>7$ a bottle here in sweden
I think they had sweet heat as well.
what kind of meat to you eat with it?
I don't have a smoker so i don't make ribs that often.
In Portland OR of all places, there's an awesome little gun shop in the industrial suburbs next to a garage that can do any work you need done, though they specialize in ARs. Most jobs have a day turn around or less and they charge less than Adco. It's awesome to be able to get shit reprofiled or pinned or whatever while I hang out looking at AR parts.
That is no shit a crime. Do NOT do that. Pay someone to dress it and get a discount by letting them keep some of the meat. Then get the thing tanned and make something from it.
I find it hard to believe any gun owners that aren't literal <80iq retards or cops (redundant) get regular cleaning done at a gunsmith.
This thread reminds me, I need to bust out the file and trim my front sight, my 1911 is hitting low.
>Do you guys take your guns to a reputable gun smith in order to get them cleaned?
What?! Who the fuck? WHY?
Also, serviced? You mean like changing springs and stuff? You can't do that at home?
>MFW this bullshit
If you can't detail strip your guns get the fuck out.
>use professional gunsmith services?
Usually not for cleaning or replacing worn or broken parts. Sad thing is, most "gun shop 'smiths" are more hamfisted than me.
My old SxS got sent to Briley to have the chokes reamed open, the used Mk3 BHP that developed a case of "Hammer Follow" got taken in a week after I purchased it, but all in all, i try to keep things maintained and operational myself.
Only one weapon in the safe, a Franken AR, isn't fully reliably operational right now, but at least a dozen other rifles, shotguns and handguns are ready to roll.
>file down 1911 front sight to raise poi
Here's a rare pepe for you.
Not him but no shit, not enough hours in the day to do everything yourself and still work a full time job/sleep
I work on my guns because I enjoy it, I try to know how to do stuff myself, but changing over winter tires and shit like that? Time better spent on other shit.
