Cleaning my guns, whether shotgun or pistol, would be 10X faster and 100X easier if there was truly a lint free cloth to wipe them down with. I generally use old t-shirts and such, but it seems I spend most of my time wiping, then wiping to get rid of the lint and threads that stuck to the barrel, then wiping again. It’s aggravating as hell and the only reason I hate cleaning my guns.
So, have any fellow gun-owning dopers (who clean their guns regularly) found a solution to this? And please don’t tell me I don’t HAVE to clean them everytime I use them. Just consider me anal. Is there truly a lint-free cloth that won’t leave little threads behind? Maybe something synthetic? Please let me know!
HERE’S A TIP: I used to use q-tips to get into hard to reach areas when cleaning my guns, but that had the same problem of leaving threads and lint places. I recently discovered that makeup appliers (for eyelashes I think?) work TERRIFIC for this purpose. Best of all, you can get them free! Just go to your mall and look around the makeup area of any big department store (Macy’s, Dillard’s, etc.). They’re usually on countertop stands where the makeup samples are. There’s hundreds of them, and they really don’t mind. I asked the lady at the counter if I could take a few and she didn’t really give it a second thought.
