I clean my guns after each use at the range. I usually shoot my Five Seven about 100 rounds or so, and the barrel still looks pretty clean. There is a little residue around the metal ring outside the barrel, but that is pretty much it. Still nice to clean it after use even if it is a relatively clean shooter.
I clean almost every time after a trip to the range. That could be 100 to 500 plus rounds. If I know I am going back the next day or two I might not clean it.
My EDC - EVERYTIME it is fired, I clean it when I get home. It is one thing to have a problem at the range, quite another if your life depends on it.
I agree, between cleaning my gun or reloading ammo, I don't know what is more relaxing.
I too am one that cleans weapons after every use, yes, to inspect for damage or wear and to get the powder residue out of the gun because I don't know when I am going back to the range or when I will fire that particular weapon again. Just a habit I have, well, more so something dear ole dad drilled into me in my younger days knowing the weapon is clean and ready to use whether at the range or for self defense.
