So powerful that three out of the eight teams invited to compete in this year's NCAA Rifle Championships are GARC teams. Now that's muscle.

Cleaning and maintaining your firearm means better performance on the range or in the field

NRA Family Insights guide to cleaning your gun The staff from NRA Family Insights sat down to bring you the basics for how to properly clean your firearm ...

How to Clean Your Gun
Can your firearm pass the white-glove test? Here's how to keep your gun clean and safe to use.

Cleaning and maintaining your guns preserves their functionality and value, and keeps them safe and accurate. The effort and attention you put into maintaining your firearms will pay off in peace of mind that your guns will do what you need them to do. Good maintenance habits help you know your gun better, and have more confidence in its performance at the range or in the field.

Once you have the gun disassembled, start with cleaning the bore. The rifling at the muzzle is critical to accuracy. You don’t want the cleaning rod to bang against the muzzle opening. Over time, this can widen the muzzle opening or leave it misshapen, so clean from breech to muzzle whenever possible.
