Organize Your Rifle Cleaning Supplies
So what does your rifle cleaning kit look like? Is it a mess of bore brushes, different solvents and oils? Here may be the answer for you. I’m not going to recommend on how to clean your rifle or shotgun since you should already know that but suggest a way for you to keep all your supplies organized and where you can find them without getting four or five different boxes out to get everything together. And if you are like me and have a half dozen different calibers and shotguns in the safe it will make sense to you.
What I have done is found a fishing tackle box that will hold everything that I need to clean a rifle, shotgun, and a pistol. You can use the separate trays to hold your brushes and mops and keep all the calibers separate so that you are not digging around trying to find that one for your .30 caliber rifle that you need to clean. You can use the bottom of the box to hold your solvents, oils, and patches and other things that are too large to fit into the smaller trays. This way all you need to grab when it comes time to clean up that rifle is your one piece cleaning rod, the cleaning box and the rifle or shotgun that needs a little bit of attention.
