Cleaning a Gun

I've Googled and dug through Wikipedia as well as several target shooting and NRA sites to find what I need...and I haven't. They all say that cleaning a gun after use is important and many of them tell you how to clean the gun. They do not, however, describe what problems a gun which hasn't been cleaned in a while might have.

My character is cleaning his service revolver. It hasn't been cleaned since it was fired months ago. When he finally sits down to clean it and put it in working order, what types of problems will he find? And what could more experienced officers rib him about (other than the fact that a man who depends on his gun really shouldn't leave it in that condition)? I want him mad and embarrassed but not fighting mad or humiliated.
