On the field, turn your gun upside down and shot any balls out that may be in your breach. While it's still upside down, press the tip of the barrel into an air bunker and fire 5-6 times. In absence of an air bunker, use an old rag wadded up against the end of the barrel. MAKE SURE THERE IS NO PAINT IN BREACH!

When you get home, rinse it out in the sink, or you can put it in dishwasher. I use the dishwasher for almost everything I have and it hasn't messed anything up yet. Make sure it's on air dry only, and turn off the heater. DON'T PUT YOUR LENS OR TANK IN THE DISHWASHER!
