One time, many years ago, I had just gotten done setting a major league spread of diver decoys. I looked at my blocks with admiration and wondered how I could have done such a nice job while still being half asleep? The weather was an ideal windy and rainy mix, and I was sure the ducks would pour in. With everything being nearly perfect, I walked up to my coffin blind, picked up my shotgun, and prepared to climb in. The first problem of the day came from my morning clumsiness, and that I stuck the muzzle into the mud.
I broke off some sticks, a few long stems of stiff marsh grass, and got the majority of the dirt out of the bore. But there was this one clump that left behind a lot of sandy residue. As we shooters know, we never pull a trigger with even the slightest of barrel obstructions. And true to form, the ducks barreled in and my four buddies shot limits very quickly while I watched.
There are a number of instances when a quick slip up can jeopardize your hunt, and the most common culprit is mud in a barrel. Whether it’s marsh mud gathered while retrieving dogs, ducks or decoys, upland dirt while putting an ecollar on your dog or the like, there is a very quick way to clean your bore so you can get on with the shooting. And it’s so simple to use that you can run a quick swab through your bore on a rainy day to reduce rust. Accidents happen and a packable cleaning kit will keep you in the hunt.
How to Use:
One of the best parts of the cleaning kit is that it is compact and can all fit into a small waterproof, plastic bag. Wrap the hanging wire around your hand and tie off with a twist tie on opposite ends, the kind you’d use on a garbage bag. Carry the bag in your hunting vest, your duck-hunting jacket or in your kit bag. Total cost is under $15. Note: With the advent of bore snakes, product developers made it easy for rifle and pistol shooters. Toss one in your kit bag and you’ll never regret it.
