1. Safety and security
When you shoot, you should wear eye and ear protection, and when you clean your firearms, you should wear protective equipment as well. Before I started disassembling my pistols, I put on a pair of clear glasses and rubber gloves. It's a good idea to shield your eyes from cleaning products splatter. Not only will wearing gloves prevent solvents from soaking into your skin, but they will also make cleaning your hands much easier once you're done.
2. A Clear Surface
Even if it's just a fast field strip, I like to arrange all of my cleaning supplies and parts in an orderly manner when disassembling my pistols. Everything is more efficient in a decluttered setting, and I don't have to rummage around for what I need. It's much easier with a mat, which also allows for speedier cleanup.
3. Illumination
It's essential that I clean my firearms in a well-lit place. Light allows you to view dirt and grime, as well as inspect your firearm's parts for wear and tear or even breaks. Do you lack adequate overhead lighting? To check and inspect your firearm, use a pocket-sized flashlight.
4. Power Swabs
These cotton-tipped sticks are like cotton swabs on steroids, to be honest. The bamboo handles are sturdy, allowing you to delve into those filthy corners. The cotton is tightly packed to prevent it from falling apart or falling off during cleaning. They are available in a variety of sizes and have either round or pointed points. Power Swabs are convenient and simple to use, fitting into all of the nooks and crannies that gather unburned powder, unclean oil, and other residues. Pistol Cleaning Kit includes everything you'll need for complete cleaning.
5. Convenience Kit
A little portable cleaning kit is essential. I have one in my range bag in case I need to clean up the range quickly. The BK Compact Pistol Cleaning Kit is the appropriate size and includes TOOLS, ranging in caliber from.22 to.45.

Before I zip up the case, I would fold up a couple of throwaway shop towels and add a handful of Power Swabs, and I'm ready to clean and go!

How to choose a bore jag for cleaning your firearms?

Using a jag is the most effective way to remove fouling from the bore as it applies constant pressure on the patch against the bore when cleaning versus dragging a patch through the bore with a patch holder.

Speaking of choosing jags, we need to look at some features of jags to find out whether they fit your requirement.
The most common material is brass.  Borekare produces solid brass jags that are versatile and cost-efficient when comes to cleaning guns.

The brass bore jags are inexpensive and affordable. BoreKare brass bore jag tips keep a tight fit between the patch and the bore for the entire length in order to fully remove fouling along with excess solvent and oil, and also cleverly drop off as the jag exits the muzzle.
Using a brass bore jag will stop any unintentional scratches or dents to the interior of the chamber and barrel, which can do significant and costly damage. The material is soft enough to avoid rubbing if it ever comes in contact.
Borekare brass jags are threaded to match most cleaning rods and come in a diverse range of calibers to match most hunting rifles and firearms on the market.


Some cleaning tips:

It is recommended to use a muzzle guard and bore guide to center cleaning rods and to reduce fouling. Using bore guides to protect the bore throat and keep solvent and fouling from running back into the action and trigger mechanism.

In most cases, when cleaning a semi-auto rifle like an AR15, the Bore guide will fit into the upper receiver and replace the bolt carrier group when cleaning guns.

Remember not to disassemble the firearms more than needed to check for any damage. Just try not to overdo it.

Always choose the right size cleaning Jag & attach a patch when you are cleaning.
Run a wet patch or mop saturated with Pro-Shot (lubricant or solvent) through the bore several times to penetrate and loosen fouling. Let Lubricant soak for about 10 minutes to do the work so it will make your cleaning much easier. A patch holder or a specifically sized jag are both good options when using cleaning patches to saturate the barrel of your rifles.
