    I like the air idea. I was thinking that myself .

    I do have and use compressed air canisters when cleaning my weapons--guess 'cause I can't get a gunsmith to stay in my pocket!

    Please realize that the stuff in those "air" cans is not air. It's a potentially hazardous material such as Difluoroethane. Make sure that it's used in a well-ventilated area and that there are no open flames or other ignition sources because the stuff in the cans normally is able to burn.

    I have a 25-gallon heavy duty compressor in my garage in addition to a smaller easily portable compressor that I can take anywhere. I use these for cleaning stuff in addition to many other tasks.

    I also Spray with "Cleaner" turn upside down and leave over night to drip out, and then repeat. Thousands of rounds with two LC9's and never a problem. Important to let dry completely. No oil of any kind.

    I try and point the hole down as much as possible. I do not spray with air, I figure there is enough arousal pressure in the can for that. It does fill up with a lot of guke, when it drains you can see all the crap draining out. I also will put some wipe-Out in it. This stuff will clean a dirty barrel like new over night. Eats up fouling,

    Do you spray it in the firing pin hole or from the rear?

    I spray it from both directions then move the striker and spray again until it feels right. I like Dave's way also. Wear eye protection! And listen to Skip if you use canned air! Den

    If you use Gun Scrubber on a polymer firearm, try to use the Synthetic Safe version.

    The original can damage plastics, or so I've heard. I don't want to know.
