    recently obtained a mx-3 top single. i plan to clean barrel and action between shoots but dont plan a complete break down between shoots. should i drop the hammer on a snap cap or should i just close the action and forget it. 2-3 days between shoots or practice . any comments ???

    drop the hammer on a snap cap or just pull the trigger and hold it as you drop it. i do the latter.

    After a shoot and before I leave the gun club I run the Tico bore cleaning rod down the barrel and remove any grease from the hinge with a drop of Break Free and take out the trigger and relieve the hammers; takes less than 5 minutes.

    With an empty gun pointed in a safe direction, hold the trigger back the last time you close the gun. The hammer with fall slowly as you close the action.

    Drop the hammers, take the triggers out after done, it takes three seconds. You are driving me nuts just thinking of putting that gun away without proper handling. Thanks Stan
