Owning a firearm is one thing, but proper usage and maintenance is a whole different ball game. Often, handgun enthusiasts fail to take correct care of their pistols, which hurts the quality of the pistol in the long run.
Gun maintenance is critical for a firearm owner because it keeps the weapon in working order. Failing to maintain your firearms could cause issues when you attempt to use them, making them less effective whether you’re going target shooting, hunting, or need to protect your home.
Even the most dedicated gun enthusiast will acknowledge that in the wrong hands, a firearm can do more than range shoot, hunt, or defend people and property. The vast majority of American gun owners are law-abiding citizens, many of them trained in firearms safety and accuracy.
