Cleaning guns. Unless you're a neat freak or OCD (like certain members of the Shooting Illustrated staff, but that's another story), no one likes cleaning guns. Oh, sure, we all love shooting them, whether at a match, in training or just plain having fun plinking. But when we get home and put all the gear away, hauling out the bucket of cleaning supplies is the one un-fun part of the experience.

RamRodz Gun Swabs won't take the blah out of cleaning, but this new cleaning product will make the experience simpler and faster—and anything that gets cleaning out of the way quicker is a good thing, right?

Specifically sized for your pistol's bore, RamRodz look like gigantic cotton swabs—because that's exactly what they are. Designed to fully clean your firearm's bore (and cylinder, for the wheelgun lovers out there), the RamRodz expand to fill rifling grooves and thoroughly clean the barrel. The swabs are low-lint and designed to hold in cleaning fluids and oils to minimize the mess from de-gunkifying your favorite pistol.

With an MSRP of $8.79 (through Brownells) for a package of 200 and available for .22 LR, .38 Spl., .40 S&W, .45 ACP and .50 AE, it's worth picking some up to make cleaning less of a chore.
