Couple of minutes in the bathroom sink or in the shower with a bore brush and hot water. Then remove the grips and run through the dishwasher with the next load of dirty dishes. Us old guys adapt slow but we adapt, as long as you got the machine in your kitchen you might as well use it.
The rifle is different, mostly hose and cold water at outside tap but when I take a shower it goes in with me for a better cleaning. No matter how I wiggle it around I can't get it to fit in the dishwasher.
