Outdoorsmen are busy people and do not always have time to clean their guns. If they do find time after an exhausting hunt, some will shove their cleaning rod down into the barrel with the barrel attached to the rest of the gun.
This technique is not recommended. Here are 3 reasons why.
Forcing the cleaning rod down the barrel with the barrel attached tightly packs gun powder and other residues into mechanisms that are necessary to keep your gun functioning properly.
Building up gun powder and residue overtime can set your bullet off inside the gun. When this happens, shrapnel can blow back in your face and eyes.
Forcing the cleaning rod in the opposite direction of the bullets trajectory does not clean the barrel thoroughly.
