Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

walmart and K-mart sell them for anywhere from 30-60 bucks. Not Otis, generic ones that come in an aluminum briefcase.

I got a Remington kit that covers all the guages. It is enclosed in a mat to lay your gun on while you clean. It was only $39 I think. Bass Pro has one in a wood case for about $29. So $139 seems high.

for a rifle's bore, nothing beats a one piece rod, a brush, a jag, montana x-treme bore cleaner, and some patches. Do not try to catch a wiff of the montana x-treme, it feels like someone whacked you in the face with a 2x4. All this fancy cleaning kit stuff is just a sales pitch.

Wipeout and some patches are all you need.

1. Spray a small amount of foam in the breech end and lean in corner.
2. Patch out gunk you never knew was there.
3. Shoot it again.

I dont know how people get patches stuck in the barrel but I digress. If you like the kit than go for it.

The day I trust a boresnake on a 1k weapon is the day I trust Harry Reid with my dog and wallet alone in a hotel room.....

Nothing like a good tool to do the job right, and a brass or steel cleaning rod, a jag tip, patches, and a cleaning patch tip is all you need

Lubricant and cleaning slovent of your choice and you are good to go.

One of the main reasons I like this kit is because it comes with the instructional video.

Seems pretty high to me, but I don't have every caliber possible, so I wouldn't be using the entire kit.

I bought one of those all-in-one kits in the little aluminum briefcases, and bought more stuff as I needed them. At this time, the little briefcase is history, and almost everything I have for cleaning fits very nicely into a small toolbox I picked up at Home Despot. I would have preferred a tackle box, but couldn't find one without looking around more. Maybe that will come later, when I outgrow this box.

The only thing that won't fit is the 1-piece rifle cleaning rod.

I thought it was pretty crazy that somebody would spend that much on a gun cleaning kit. Does anybody here think that this system is in any way worth that price?
Uncle SAM hands these out to our boys over there. Check out the military section of Otisgun.com
