I have never done a great job keeping my guns as clean as they deserve. I always run some cleaning patches through my rifles and muzzleloaders and I have broken my pistols down a couple of times but never given them a full cleaning like I know they probably need.

I have some Bass pro gift cards and want to buy some cleaning supplies so that I can really clean all my guns real good. I need some advice on what to buy to get the job done. I have pistols, rifles, muzzleloaders, and shotguns.

I have looked at some of the real expensive Otis cleaning kits. I just don't know if this is the right thing.

Any advice is appreciated.

Gun scrubber

Foaming bore cleaner

A good gun oil

A basic cleaning kit with the proper size attachments for the caliber/gauge you will be using it on.

Toothbrush

An old rag

That is about all you need

Otis kits are nice. I had one for my AR till I shop it to a friend's, nieghbor's, cousin's, brother in law recently. I never used a foaming cleaner before, just CLP, but the list above is about all you need as far as basics.

I USED to use several different things to clean mine with but I heard about Forg Lube and it does everything, it cleans, lubes and protects.

You can ever eat it.

No joke.

I would also suggest a good set of gunsmithing screwdrivers (or a handle with set of interchangable tips like Brownells sells) and a set of brass drift punches for removing pins. A regular screwdriver will bugger up the slots on your gun's screws very quickly, and steel punches will do the same to pins.

I use q-tips a lot for getting in hard to reach areas.
