In looking around the forum, I never see a mention of using compressed air for gun cleaning. I used to rebuild a lot of engines in my younger days and always made it a point to blow out every hole, passage, nook and cranny I could find, and then blow them out in the opposite direction just to be sure everything was clean. Is compressed air not good for guns?

I use compressed air. Small compressors can be had today for under a hundred bucks and they do a great job of cleaning your firearm. I've also been using Cylinder & Slide's Dunk-it for years.

I was just using q-tips to clean until I visited my bother. After we went shooting we cleaned our barrel like normal and then he brushed on the cleaner and made sure it got in all the small spots were it likes to build up. Then he went outside and blew it off with the air compessor it worked great so I did the same. It is much faster and does a better job IMO

Using compressed air isn't a problem if you use a OSHA approved low pressure blow gun and an inline moisture separator and always wear eye protection.
