Have any of you ever observed that a barrel is harder to get clean afer using G96 or a similar CLP in the bore?

No, but I dont use G96. I use FP10 almost strictly on all my match/competition and duty firearms.

I think CLP is the best general purpose cleaner and lube for the buck. I use it all the time, no problems with cleaning the barrel. Because its a oil it will take a few more wipes to come off.

Let me see if I get this straight; CLP can do everything needed to properly take care of a gun, including lube, clean, and bore? Should/could it be used with a boresnake? Should the gun be cleaned before first shooting?

Military Power, if you want to use a CLP, the answers are yes according to the advertising, yes if you like to use bore snakes and yes only because some guns may come dry or get dry in shipping and you need to field strip and look at the barrel and things before shooting. My PERSONAL practice is to strip, do a light quick cleaning, and run a new gun pretty wet with lube since the surfaces in contact will be roughest then, and I'm hoping the oil will carry away the tiny particles broken away or shaken loose by the wearing-in process. Sort of like the break-in oil in cars. Please note, I have no scientific studies to confirm my practice, I'm not an engineer, I'm not a gunsmith, and I'm sure somebody else does it differently and that works equally well.

The only four things I use on my guns are Kroil, J.B. bore compound (In the chamber only. I don't clean my bores), 10W30/40 motor oil and WD-40.

I always clean the gun first before shooting it for the first time. From the factory, they normally have grease or God knows what on it and if used, you dont know who did what or put what on it.
