My Utah permit instructor told us he cleans his handguns with an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. NOTE: He did specify that ONLY metal parts be cleaned this way. (I think he said something about the glue used in the polymer frames doesn't hold up in the cleaner) Then he blows them dry with an air compressor.
