New 22/45 owner from Orlando

Just added a Ruger 22/45 to the collection and I'm having a blast with it, other than the cuts I got on my hands trying to figure out how to reassemble it after I decided to clean it.

Hoping it gets easier as far as care & cleaning because I got it as an economic alternative to the 9mms that I usually shoot, but spending $60 to have a gunsmith put it back together eats into my ammo budget

Just the same, I'm super excited and it's been a blast to shoot.

Welcome. Those things are like Swiss watches inside. It's what makes them tack drivers but also a pain on the cleaning bench.

Welcome from Southern Illinois. This is not going to go over well and I don't practice such behaviour. But, I have friends who never break their firearms down to clean. A simple swabbing of the bore and toothbrush/Q-Tip in the chamber and their done. Much to my dismay they are quite happy and proficient shooters with no more malfunctions then anyone else. Enjoy.
