I store my unloaded pistols in my "drive-in" closet. Ports down, bores lightly oiled. Once a month or so I clean completely with dry patches and re-oil the rails, guides, barrel, anything else the manual calls for. Then I wipe the whole thing down with a (very, very) lightly oiled microfiber cloth. An easy routine to do once in a while when you're watching TV, and a good opportunity for some extra mindless scrubbing under the extractor claw, etc.

[Edit]

Also, I keep a notepad right next to my pistols and I jot down the last date I cleaned each. Makes it easier to keep a consistent rotation.
