Ballistol Multi-Purpose Wipes

posted on November 18, 2014

Sometimes, the best ideas are the simplest. What's one of the biggest enemies of firearms (aside from anti-gun politicians, of course)? Rust. What's a sure-fire way to introduce rust on a firearm? Get it wet and then don't clean it immediately.

With Ballistol's Multi-purpose wipes, however, you can keep a couple packets in your range bag or even rifle case and have a means of lubricating and protecting your firearms right at your fingertips. And speaking of fingertips, the active ingredient in these wipes is safe for skin and non-carcinogenic.

A single package of 24 individually-wrapped wipes can be spread throughout the home, range and garage. Squeaky door hinges can be dealt with quickly, as can dry bicycle chains and tools that see frequent use. Of most importance to our firearms, keep a handful of wipes in your range bag and rifle case. When caught in inclement weather, these wipes remove water and leave a protective coating that will protect your favorite firearm against rust, corrosion and residue.

MSRP: $27 for three boxes of 24 wipes each.

Your Go-To Move

When it comes to a self-defense situation, most shooters think “Well, I’ll just shoot him!” Others may consider their personal “go-to” move to be a martial arts technique such as a finger strike to the eyes, bare-knuckle punch to the throat or kick to the groin.

CCW in Public Restrooms: When You Gotta Go...

Sometime, somewhere, you’ll require the use of a public restroom stall. After all, like we tell small children, “Everyone has to go.” If you carry a concealed handgun, you will face the universal problem of what to do with that pistol in the stall while your britches are down.
