Have most things others have mentioned but add in pipe cleaners, great for cleaning AR bolt carriers and doubled-up do a good job of cleaning and lubing firing pin channels.

Old toothbrush,q-tips, Hoppes solvent, a "universal" kit from WW. a bore snake for each of my shot gun, pistols and rifles. I also have a small "travel" squeeze bottle I got from WW, I filled with Mobil 1 and use it in my high friction areas on my auto pistols...applied with a q-tip.

I am just as nice as anyone lets me be and can be just as mean as anyone makes me. - Quoted from Terryger, New member to our forum.
I keep most of the usual stuff. One no one else mentioned. An old fashioned shave brush will put preservative grease like RIG universal in places you just can't otherwise reach.
I have everything mentioned here including Gunzilla. My wife made me clean my guns outside until I switched. I included a set of picks I got at Lowes.
I keep all of this stuff in a fishing tackle box.
I also have a couple of different sizes of hemostats which help me clean in the hard to reach places.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
I use to have a ton of cleaning gear then I got feed up packing for the range one day and got one of the Otis elite kits. It does rifles .17 to .50 caliber, pistols .17 to .50 caliber, shotguns .410 to 12/10 gauge, and all in-line muzzle loaders.
So far its does a great job, covers everything I have and want to get, and came with a small pouch to pack for the range.
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know

I have most of the usual stuff...I get the long q-tips from Brownells, and I have been using slip2000 on my guns here lately and like how it works for me.
My tackle box was getting too full, so I bought a gun cleaning box from Cabella's last year, and it is just the right size for all my cleaning gear.
Haven't tried blue wonder or gunzilla yet.
Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.
Hoppes Elite, Simple Green, old t-shirts cut up into various sizes, a one piece plastic coated rod, brushes and picks, a couple of Bore Snakes and a bottle of Sweets. All in a small Tupperware type container. I'm single, so I can use the kitchen counter to clean on.
Almost forgot, a spray can of non chlorinated brake cleaner. You can get it for $1.49 anywhere vs. almost $10.00 for Gun Scrubber.
boresnake, old toothbrush, oil, WD40, Simple Green, brake cleaner, etc.
