Clean it1: barrel is dirty. is this from factory test firing or someone else ?(NIB from a shop that doesnt have a range)
Well, snap caps are for dry fire, and if they are the same caliber as the gnyou intend to use them in, yes, they are 'safe'2:A-Zoom 9mm luger snap caps are safe for dry fire?
I've never tried locking ours. We don't even have a key. Can't help you.3:stupid ILS lawyer lock will not turn (to locked). i think the key might be too wide, or is there something i have to engage/disengage (read the manual, tried it w/mag in and out = nothing).
I wouldn't waste money on "clean" ammo. You should clean your pistol after ever range session. Some ammo is dirtier than others, use what you like. I like PMC, and often use Remington, WWB and Fed AE. Yes, a few are dirty.4:what type of ammo for target/range shooting and reliability? i was thinking WINclean, does this actually help keep the gun cleaner?
You clean it, then lube it, the same as any time you clean and lube it.5:what do i do as far as cleaning, lube etc. before shooting it?
