First things first, when preparing to find a firearm that is best suited for you and your house safety it is important to look at the ease of care for the particular weapon you are looking for.
A shot gun I find to be the weapon of choice for our house safety. The reason I chose a shotgun is the ease at which I can keep and maintain it. Unclean and under maintained weapons are the major cause of deaths in house safety and gun related accidents. Below is a basic list of the things you will find in a gun cleaning kit. If the kit you are looking at does not include some of these items then do not buy that gun cleaning kit.
The basic components of a weapons cleaning kit for your house safety are…
- AP (All purpose) Brush
- CLP (Cleaning, Lubricating, protectant) Oil
- patch holder
- Bore Brush
Some more handy tips for keeping and maintaining your house safety firearm.
- Q TIPS: These are great for getting in nooks and crannies of your gun parts to remove carbon…Carbon is not your friend, it builds up from the gun powder residue
- Pipe Cleaners: These, like q tips can get in some more nooks and crannies
- Gun Cleaning Mat: This can be anything from an old sweatshirt to a more fancy made for cleaning materials that soak up oil, etc. You dont want to do this on the living room floor necessarily, but wherever you clean you dont want it soaked with oil and gunpowder residue.
- *disclaimer* you should use latex gloves and eye protection when cleaning your weapon.
