Not as perfect as it seems

I'd been using the regular patch and rod set up since I started shooting. Then I heard about bore snakes. I figured why not? It's not like it will hurt anything. So I bought one and used one on my .22lr, and stored it for a month. When I took it out to do a maintenance cleaning, I decided to use a rod and patches. I could not believe what I was looking at when the patches came out!! They were just about 100% BLACK with fowling!!! RIDICULOUS!!

So, now I always take the extra time to clean it the old fashion way. Remember the old saying "You can have it done quickly, cheaply, or properly: pick any 2." Although the "cheaply" part doesn't really apply to this, you get the idea.
