Cleaning?

Howdy,
I recently got my Texas CHL, and purchased my first gun, the P30.
I spent months researching, reading, going to gun shows, and renting countless pistols before I finally settled on this one, and I couldn't be happier.
I was saying it was perfect before I even knew that was HK's slogan - think that says it all.

My question is how do you clean this thing? If you guys have any good links, tips, techniques, place to buy cleaning supplies/kits, anything, please let me know.

Thank you, I appreciate it!

Excellent choice of handgun, I always like seeing a new shooter that really did their research and tried out a wide variety of guns rather than just buying what's popular or cool-looking or whatever the salesman recommends. You're off to a good start, and welcome to the forum!

There are lots of good places online for buying cleaning supplies and other accessories, MidwayUSA is a good place to start. Everyone will have different preferences on methods, products, and frequency, and although I suppose there are a few wrong ways (use common sense), there isn't really just one "right way". I used to clean my guns immediately after every trip to the range...that got to be tiresome, now I've settled down a bit, I wipe them down with a silicone cloth after shooting/handling but usually only really clean them every thousand rounds or so. If I'm giving something a thorough cleaning, I like to use Hoppe's Elite Gun Cleaner followed up by Hoppe's Elite Gun Oil, but for most general cleaning/lubrication I just use Breakfree CLP. Lots of other good products out there too. I use a brass brush and jag on a cleaning rod to clean the barrel, though some prefer bore snakes. As has been mentioned, the manual provides good info on the details of what to clean and lube.
