Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Cleaning machine guns suck

2 day shoot figured its better to shoot all my ammo then reload & off load any cans of ammo. Really happy I never got to shoot my dedicated .22 upper & forgot G3 mags. H&K's suck the worse for cleaning. Suppressed machine guns are always worse too!

I can see why some guys machine guns just stop running. The go home & either don't clean them or do a half assed job.

Basic rule of thumb for troops in an infantry platoon.
"Squad designated machine gunner and the squad RTO are your best friends. But as soon as the first incoming round is fired at you treat them like they had a contagious disease and get away from them. Why? Their called targets."

In the Army, we'd clean the machine guns in the shower with hot, soapy water.

Now days, we have aerosol cleaners that clean and lube like Ballistol, Hornady Dry Lube, Birchwood Casey foaming cleaner, etc...

I bought a 5 gallon buckets of Mirechem gun cleaner for myself & shooting buddies. I needs spray bottles & squirt bottles to replace the aerosol. I really would love a parts, weapon cleaning station, but they don't fit my gun room or budget.
