      Here is another thing to add to your care-package, since you do a lot of shooting - you will love them.

      I don't spend much time on cleaning bore's, but when I do I want it to be fast'n-easy. I don't scrub with a brass-brush, but I like to get some of the carbon out after each trip without stripping the gun. I was using the OTis cleaning patches (big round ones) which you pull through with the mini-cable. These mega-Q-tips work much better. A much, much, tighter fit in the bore and even the chamber. Just oil them up and push them through from the chamber end. The handles are very flexible but still strong enough. A lot of crap comes out with each pass (many-multiple's of what comes out with an otis pull through patch). The last pass you can run dry to get the oil out of just slightly oiled depending on your individual belief about leaving a film of oil in the bore...I got them in 45 and super.

      Tried them for the first time last week - Amazing. I hate cleaning guns, only because it is repetitive and monotonous (like cleaning anything over and over is), so anything which expedites the process is a little "win" (rated 5 star's by shooters on Amazon):

      The first Challis bushings I saw were on my X-Tac. My Dan Wesson has ‘em now.

      How do you like the aggressive starburst grips? They look good and I didn’t know VZ made those.
      Well I have one of those on order now, seems perfectly inline with how I like to clean. Thanks! I also leave the bore dry since my perfered cleaner (break free CLP) should protect it, I don't do this with precision rifles since it messes with them untill it's burnt off.

      Samuse: The grips are great, I picked them since they are the most agressive option available and for my carry and competition guns I perfer maximum traction. In my right hand it locks in well and my skin is quite calloused from these and other guns, in my left hand it's painful to hold/fire but very effective at its job. There is no shifting if you put your hand in 5-30oil and use the gun, I have no concerns with it falling out of my hand.
