With my recent pistol purchase I bought a bore snake for it, along with the Hoppe’s cleaner and oil. Along with a good rag, some q-tips, and a few tooth picks, I was able to do a complete cleaning.
While I was impressed by how well it worked, I wonder if it is enough. After, looking at several of the local stores, there appears to be a lack of pistol cleaning kits or the kits have tons of other stuff, but lacking particular pieces that I would like to get. All my other cleaning supplies (hard goods) are for larger deer rifles and shot guns so a 9mm is a bit of a change for me.
What all do you have in you cleaning kit? To you just have the basics, or do you have small picks, various hand and rod brushes, spray cleaners, foaming cleaners, dipping cleaners, 83 different size pads, lights, air in a can, cleaning mat, and a mini-vacuum and all the other stuff?
