Is this right?

Ive been told by several people that the proper way to clean my super stocker is by taking it in the shower with me, or just by washing it out with warm water. Wouldnt it rust very easily if you did not blast out every bit of water? Im just a little uneasy as to if this is really how to clean the marker.

I used to, but then I stopped.. I mean.. I would highly suggest taking off the trigger frame and all the internals, well.. except valve.. before you do this.. It definitely gives it the shine that it has brand new, or wiping it down with a damp cloth..

But.. after 3 or 4 times doing it, my screws and some of the trigger frame internals started to rust.. Cleaned off the rust, and haven't done it since.. If it needs an extensive cleaning, I just use a damp cloth, but the inside shouldn't need that..

If you are gonna shower with your PPS gun, take the grips off after your intimate moments with the gun, pat off the water with a towel, use a blow dryer to dry the gun. I'd also suggest a drop or 2 of oil in the ASA, air up the gun, and then dry fire it to get some fresh oil circulated through out the gun.

I also suggest smearing some oil on the steel screws to prevent rust. You got to shower with it, dry it, and then place it under your pillow

I only shower with my guns when they are really really dirty.
Then use a hair dryer on them afterwards.
I also fully disassemble afterwards prior to the drying.
Then reassemble the next day.

The "under the pillow" is the most important part..
