    I just have stuff I've collected over the years that I keep in an old candy tin-box. If you buy a kit, get a cheap one and add to it as you need.

    My cleaning kit out grew th older fishing box, and recently, I bought a larger size fishing box with two swing-up trays having many sections...I can separate all the different size bore brushes, and small parts for the various guns. The bottoms section is large enough to hold the rods, bore cleaning patches, and larger items such as old grips, etc.

    Buy a box and then assemble your own cleaning kit from scratch with the things you need/want.

    I bought a cheap kit with a cleaning rod, brushes, and patch loops. I also use toothbrushes to clean my handguns. I store everything in a small tackle box.

    My son and I both use the Otis cleaning system and several of my LEO friends do also because easy to carry plus I like cleaning breach to barrel and cables make that possible. My son was in the Army and that was what he used in the middle east.

    I would just build one around my firearms! Half the stuff that comes in a kit you'll never use. Any kind of box to store it in will do!

    I bought a kit in a nice nylon pouch and wound up throwing most of the stuff away. Bore snake, a SS brush, a silicone wile and a bottle of CLP is what I wound up using.

    If you are going to be cleaning a variety of guns, store your supplies in something like this. Holds rods, patches, snakes, cleaning fluids, oil, towels, etc.

    I've bought a couple of basic kits and picked up the additional supplies I use piece meal. I keep two kits, the larger is here at the house and occupies the greater part of a four foot long shelf, a second, much smaller in a 7.62 ammo can for carry in the RV.

    The little kit referred to is so limited that, IMO, you'll soon outgrow it. I gotta go with others above using the fishing tackle box. Plenty of separators and shelves for most everything you have and will get over time. A tray for different caliber brushes, bore mops, patches, etc. Different jags and patch-pullers. Misc stuff, oil(s), polish, rag(s) silicone rag, etc. Pretty soon you'll wonder how you originally could've thought you'd make out without it. Big space underneath for the Hoppe's spray cleaner and big stuff. You'll see ....
