Default Gun Cleaning !?

So I'm stationed here in pensacola and had my mom bring my 12 gauge down here last weekend when she came to visit. It seems my dad had let it sit behind the seat of his truck for a while and the end of the barrel has rust on it and the inside is not very clean. The action was stuck but I put some oil on it and it works fine now. Where in Pensacola can I take it to get a good thorough cleaning hopefully before next weekend? I will get a cleaning kit once I start using it but as of now I iust want to get it fixed so to say. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kalvin

What Model?
I have a Mossburg 500 , so I know how to break That one down....a little harder than My Pistols!.
....A gunsmith will charge you a fortune to do anything to it.....Search Youtube or Google your make/model and you will get the info you need to break it down. The rest is just a matter of some busy work with the cleaning kit , a tooth brush and some breakfree cleaner/lube. If the Rust doesn't come off with the cleaner and some elbow grease, you may have to use some emry cloth, Probalby not the best thing for the bluing,but don't think you can damage it much more now.
Plenty of guys on here with much more experience than me....and many would probably help you out as well.

Mossberg
Model 88

How much is a fortune to clean a gun? I would hate to mess something up and not be able to put it back together again...made that mistake before

I think a gunsmith will charge somewhere in the neighborhood of $80/hr.
....But You Shouldn't need one....just follow along with the instructional video....the one for the 500 should work - looks like the 88 is very similar. If you get stuck, I'd be glad to help.....or if you really want to pay someone, bring me a bottle of Jack and I'll clean it.....(sober of course.)
.....but you should really learn to clean it yourself, part of gun ownership, and I find cleaning the guns to be enjoyable and relaxing....kind of therapeutic!

Yes I do clean my own guns (at home) in a nice big open area with room to layout and clean everything...We cant have weapons on base here so I am keeping it at a relative's house but yeah 80$ an hour is ridiculous ill just find some time/place to do it I guess
