Real Avid Gun Boss

By Bob Robb

Being something of an clean freak (my wife’s words, not mine!), I am always looking for a better way to clean my guns, especially when traveling. In years past I have put together my own little traveling cleaning kit, with aluminum take-down cleaning rod, patches, a little cleaning solvent, and whatever brushes and mops I need for a particular trip. I pack it in a half gallon-sized Ziploc baggie and pack the thing in my rifle case when flying, or in a little accessory tackle box I use when driving to hunts or shooting events. It’s always been a hassle, but better than nothing.
