I've been cleaning my guns for more years than I care to say, but I will say that when I discovered JB Bore paste about 10 years ago I received an epiphany. If you haven't tried it your missing out.
I've finally got firearms cleaning figured out & how to 100% protect my firearms for storage. Not only that, I'm been doing it for enough years to know it works!
BUT just line blondes & brunettes, to each his own!
