Seems to me that you are way over thinking this one. 18 rounds through a previously clean handgun, and youíre going to shoot it again in a week, itís good to go. Iíd wipe it down after the range and thatís all...!

For my regular use range handguns, Iíll clean them good every couple/few hundred rounds. Rimfire guns less frequently than that. High power rifles, more frequently.

For guns that I shoot then plan to store in the safe for a long time, Iíll clean the gun/bore good and make sure itís got a good preservative in the barrel and exterior. I used to obsess about cleaning them all the time, then came to understanding that it just doesnít have to be done that much...
