I'm new to firearms so I would appreciate some advice on cleaning kits. I'm a cancer survivor (exposure to AO and diesel fuel) so I avoid as many petroleum products as I can. MPro7 and Gunzilla both indicate they are non-toxic so they seem like good options for me.
I found two kits on Amazon ---
Amazon.com: Hoppe's M-Pro 7 Gun Cleaner - Tactical Cleaning Kit, Clam: Sports & Outdoors
Amazon.com: Otis .22-45 Caliber Pistol Cleaning System: Sports & Outdoors
What are the advantages/disadvantages to the rods vs the cables?
Others prefer Jags. Being new, I have no experience so any suggestion or recommendation from the more experienced folks is greatly appreciated.
