On a .22 rifle, I clean the chamber with a Q-tip, but I only clean the bore every few thousand rounds.
Many small bore competitors never clean the bore of their 22 match rifles.
I didn't fight to defend your freedom so you could vote to take away mine.
"A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
John Stuart Mill."
