Rehash: Simple Green and hot water :)

This is an old subject but worth rehashing again. How many of you use Simple Green and hot water to clean your firearms? There's a lot of false information floating around about utilizing water to clean guns because the fear of rust. However, I believe it's the American Gunsmithing Institute also highly recommends Simple Green and hot water.

At any rate, I use it in an Ultrasonic Cleaner and it's one hell of a degreaser. After using it in the UC, I rinse it thoroughly with hot water. Then it gets baked in the oven for 10 minutes for a thorough drying. Afterwards, the gun gets lubed.

The only time I have ever used Simple Green to clean a guns was to take the cosmaline(sp?) off of my AK when I bought it. Man did it strip that stuff right off
Then I washed it down real good with water. Let it dry good and gave it a nice coat of oil.

The defensive firearm is a special-purpose piece of safety rescue equipment, designed to extricate a person . . . from the immediate threat of savagely violent crime. It is like the fire extinguisher. . . . Neither piece of equipment will do you any good if you don't know how to use it or are not psychologically prepared to face danger with that gear in your trained hands in a terror situation.
