Having a Glock cleaning kit handy makes keeping your pistol in tip top shape. Not only will it perform better and more accurately, but it will also make it more reliable in emergency situations.
Gun performance is important considering that your handgun can protect you, your loved ones, and your property.
Performing routine cleanings prolong the life of your handgun and provides a great opportunity to inspect it for excessive wear and tear or breakage.
I actually love sitting down at my dining room table, spreading out a mat, and breaking down my handgun after a visit to the range.
There is something oddly satisfying about assembling the tools from my cleaning kit and the familiar smell of cleaner.
The ritualistic movement of sliding the rod all the way down the barrel, out the other side, before pulling it back through really calms my mind.
Having all your cleaning tools neatly organized and contained within a kit help make cleaning more enjoyable and also more efficient.
