    :dunno: looking at getting one but I've seen they have ones that collapse down so you can use it on a handgun as well

    looking at these, but not sure which one to get. Want to be able to clean .308, .223, 9mm, .40, and .22LR with only one rod (if possible)

    well, I don't mind if it's a one-piece, I just don't know if it would work. I have a REALLY hard time remembering to clean my guns :o

    I need to get back into it and am ordering some CLP and need a new rod that is coated.

    any ideas are welcome

    What kind of rifles?

    Pistols are easy.... just pick the smallest caliber you own, and a rod to match.

    my AR's, and then my browning .308.

    3 9mm's and a .40 handgun. I am just WAY too laxidasical and really need to get on top of cleaning my guns more often after I shoot. I shot about 200 rounds of .22LR through one of my AR's about a month or so ago (probably longer) and haven't cleaned it :wtc:

  10. Get the right size rods for each rifle. They're not a million dollars or anything.

    :squint:
     
  12. Or get a rod small enough to fit your smallest bore, then bend it as you try to ram a bigger patch/jag down your .308 bore.

    that's wat I've always done, is just use larger patches. have sets for each caliber. figured that was good enough, but I just want to get a rod/rods that I can use for multiple guns.

    I don't mind getting one for the handguns and one for the rifles, but I dont want one for each fucking rifle/handgun

    WTF, you can spend $$$$ on gay ass TAD shit but won't buy rods?

    Wait until Costa does "Art of Cleaning the Tactical Carbine" and then you'll know exactly what to get.

    Get a dedicated rods. You can get away with one rod for pistol 9 and 40. Get like rod 10" or so. Get the proper caliber specific jags (and brushed if you like).

    For Rifle get a rog long enough to the lenght of the barrel and receiver with a few inches to spare. Get a rod appropriate for each caliber of rifle.

    Get a rod case for your long rods. It protects them from being bent. A bent rod is not good for your bore.

    Stay away from segmented rods. It's possible to have them no perfectly stait and you can imagine what that can do to your bore.

    and so the dewey coated/flexible rods aren't good?
     
  19. You can also get a piece of wood and notch it and then screw it to your wall. Use it to hang the rods, just put them into the notches handle up and they'll stay unbent.

    Do you get tired while cleaning your rifles? Walking from one end to the other after every swipe to change patches/add solvent must be rough.

    I like the Hoppes Elite coated stainless steel 1 piece rods with the ball bearing handles.

    They come in plastic tubes to store them in.

    My wife lets me make one short joke a day, so I figured this being the first one ever was acceptable for you.
