Take a toothbrush to that pistol

Good morning everyone, sleep well last night? Hopefully you got enough rest for your tour today.
Did you brush? Well, I'm not talking about your teeth (hopefully you do that). I'm talking about your sidearm.
When was the last time you ran a toothbrush over that space-aged plastic frame of yours?
When we were carrying semi-auto 9mm Glocks — and now, the .40 cal. — we always kept an old toothbrush handy to knock out the dust bunnies that will gather in those little places that you may not see.
So break that Glock — or whatever it is you carry — down at least once a month and get those dirt bombs out of that chamber.
Be well, be safe, be tactical, be alive, get retired (like me).
