    I see many people mention using old t-shirts as cleaning rags and have a few questions about them as I will be joining the fold in the near future:

    Some people mention cutting them up into strips of varying size.
    a. what all do you use the strips for?
    b. are we talking small like cleaning patches or long, wide strips? what are the various uses for each size?
    c. does everyone cut them up and just not mention it, or do some folks leave their shirts whole?

    I saw someone mention using a black shirt so you cannot tell it's dirty. Joking (if there was any) aside,
    a. do you/how often do you clean said shirt patches?
    b. what do you wash them in? any concerns with cleaning detergent residue on the cloth causing damage/leading to corrosion of gun parts (metal or plastic)?

    Wherever there's fried chicken or barbecue
    I deep 6-8 of various types of dental picks around. My dentist is a shooter and will give me a handful of his used picks when I ask. They are great for getting into tight places of guns, holding small parts in place in guns and reloaders.

    HELGA: Where are you going?
    HAGAR: To sign a peace treaty with the King of England.
    HELGA: Then why take all those weapons?
    HAGAR: First we gotta negotiate...
