Every 3-6 months thereabouts. A good carry is very lightly cared for and sloppy in tolerances. Excess lube just makes gummy lint globs etc... Also if you have to eat dirt quick a tight gun may have cycling issues over a sloppy one that can be buried in mud and sand, dug up and still functions flawlessly. Never thought of them as a fashion statement, more of a functional piece of kit that should match your wits. Wearing a CCW piece with worn finish and patina shows it's doing it's job by getting carried. Don't get me wrong, a good wiping down from time to time is a good thing and sending a few downrange a couple times a year is a good thing, but a carry piece and a safe queen/range toy are two completely different tools. I worry more about cleaning the kydex or leather then what they hold.
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!

After looking at some of mine....not often 'nuff apparently. Seems they gather lint and dust from who knows where. When I do clean them I try to use a lubricant that won't gather dust etc over time or gum up either over time. One product I like is BALLISTOL. 

Look it up

I also use Ballistol. It's good stuff. 

I clean mine about every three or four months. I usually run a magazine of ammo through it every time I go to the range. My thought on that is that the round that I have chambered and unloaded each night when I get home gets shot and a new one gets put in the chamber to keep the bullet from being pushed back into the case. 

In the summer I carry a revolver so I don't unload it every night. but I still try to run 5 rounds through it every time I go to the range.

I agree Bear. I put 200 rounds through my Shield before I started carrying it. I think that is a minimum.

Someone said 

"A revolver is the most reliable the day you but it, and goes slowly down with time.  An auto is the least reliable the day you buy it, and goes up till about 20000 rounds, then goes down".

first thing is synchronization.  the Pawl wears and the cylinder and barrel don't align properly.  can be fixed; I've had 2 re done.

In double action the sears get smoother with wear but eventualy  they don't coordinate properly.

I think with an ocassional repair, a sa/da revolver like a S&W model 10 is good for 70,000 rounds or
 100 years what ever comes first.

Modern heat treatment and metals make  a good Smith a perpetual perfect machime. (Ruger also)

Having said that...I need another.

I agree on the perfect machine. I have a thing for older Smiths.

A bunch of sweet talking and an offer that can't be refused could land you with an S&W 686 .357 with one helluva smooth trigger... though I'm not sure my sis will part with it. It really would have to be an exceptional offer.

CCW=  Counter Clock Wise.

My son is overseas, so he left his CC weapon with me.  a month later I looked in the case:  Glock 9mm with 7 loaded clips in a fanny custom pak.  He must be expecting an army of attackers.
