    Can’t wait. Grant is loaded with knowledge and is an excellent presenter. This should be very entertaining as well as educational.

    Hello Grant, I’ve read a book of yours about revolvers and follow you on PDN etc., thanks for all the advice. My question concerns cleaning the forcing cone and cylinder of my 36 and 637. Do you have a favorite cleaning solution that will work on all finishes?

    • Iriya.lee

      Thanks for your question!In order to be safe for all finishes and materials, you’ll be looking for a cleaner which contains no acetone, ammonia, or amyl acetate — materials which are common in older bore cleaners and give many of them their characteristic odors. (Some people actually like the smells of their favorite cleaners; a single whiff of one particular brand takes me back to my youth and cleaning my .22 rifle!) Luckily there are a lot of newer products on the market which work even better than the old favorites, are safe for various finishes, and are often odorless and non-toxic as well.

      One of my favorites is M-Pro7 Gun Cleaner, which has been around long enough to prove its effectiveness and safety. It is quite good at removing fouling and residue, but also any grease or oil. You will need to re-lube any parts that you clean, using your favorite oil or grease as appropriate. That’s a good policy no matter what cleaner you use, BTW.

      Hope this helps!

    I would like your comments about the C.A.R. shooting system/posture. The good vs. bad, when to use vs. not use, etc. It appears to be a really good technique.

    • Iriya.lee

      As a “system” or fundamental approach to defensive shooting, I don’t feel it is a sound approach to consistently align the gun, manage recoil or maintain the reliability of the gun (by providing a stable platform). There may be some isolated extreme close quarters applications. Furthermore, I have never had one of their instructors be able to explain a sound rationale for the approach…. Which hasn’t encouraged me to reconsider my position.
