    Outer's gun and reel cloth;it is impregnated with silicone and has worked for me for about the past 30 years....

    I cut up an old 'black' t-shirt for this. I use CLP and wipe the outside til it shines again. The black t-shirt wont leave noticeable fuzzy's on the gun like a white t-shirt does.

    I buy pre-oiled 'gun wipes' followed by a clean T-shirt (old but clean).

    Cool forum, as I have just started with the whole CC thing.

    Have you ever heard of DRY silicone gun cloths? Don't leave your hands all oily and greasy - great as a last wipe cloth. They sell some cool ones at GunCloths.com - Home - political messages, gun graphics, etc.

    I have a 100% cotton T shirt that I sprayed with RemOil. I use it to wipe down my guns.

    I have an old golf towel that is only used to wipe down the gun's exterior after I spray it liberally with pure silicone. Never had a rust issue
