Say thar PawPaw

Did you have to wait 4,000 years? Ha Ha.

I 'herd' that on many a time ARVN troops dunked their M1 Garands and 30 Cal Carbines directly into a stream or river to clean their weapons. Who needs solvent? Ha Ha. That isn't going to get those weapons clean.

You should hear the howling and crying when I use hot soapy water on a Mosin Nagant. "YOU CAN"T DO THAT!" "Oh but here... use some Windex."

A good thing no one ever told Daniel Bone he couldn't clean corrosive gunk out of his rifle with hot soapy water.

Hot. Water. Is. Not. Effective. Against. Copper. Or. Lead. Fouling.
No matter how big and tough you are, when a two-year-old hands you a toy phone you'll answer it.
