Greetings All!

I just picked up a compact 9mm this week, along with my PTC.

I did my research, narrowing it down to the XD, GLOCK and SIG.

I went with the XD cause it felt the best in my hand!

Just went to the range today and shot 150 rounds off. Real nice!
I am pumped!

I am kinda stressing out though as I am nervous about taking it apart for cleaning.

Well, not that part but the reassembling part! I guess I what I am saying is I want to delay it till I need to.

So, that beind said, I got a question if I may. How many rounds until I have to clean it? I have heard anywhere from EVERY time you shoot to about 500 or so.

I want to make sure to keep it the very best it can be!

Also, is there a "break in" period with guns? Anything special you need to do?

Thanks to all in advance!

Reno in Northeast PA.

Welcome to the forums from Ohio!

Yes, you should give it a good cleaning after every shooting session.

However........I have been known to skip a cleaning every now and then. If I go shooting with friends at the trailers by the lake and we are there for a couple of days, I will not clean it until I get home. If I put 100-150 rounds through it the first day and know we are shooting again tomorrow, I will not clean it. May end up with 400-500 rounds total through it over the weekend. Will then clean it when I get home.

I just bought a XD9SC for my first gun, cleaning it was a breeze. There are plenty of videos on youtube, etc.
