There just might be a difference between combat/field usage, and civilian everyday usage. The two are NOT the same. What works in the "field" is not always the best for what works for normal civilian use. Many factors go into the choice....on the civilian side.
I just got both my guns, and haven't had to clean them yet (they were both cleaned by their previous owners before I got them).
Clean them anyway before you shoot. It'll give you a chance to see any obvious problems before you shoot and it'll help you get to know your guns better.
get a glock and forget about lubing
Ok, I cleaned the M&P anyway! Turns out there was a little residue to clean out after all! Felt good!
