Cleaning Case
I'm looking for suggestions for something to put all my cleaning stuff in to keep it organized rather than just sitting loose. I had thought about a tackle box. But I was wondering if anyone had some specific suggestions of one to get.

I've been using this Plano box for a lot of years, really like it.

I like being able to just pull out the flat box you need at the time. Plenty of deviders & sturdy construction.

Not all my stuff will fit in here, bigger bottles & extra supplies I keep in a large tool box. Good Luck, Ken

I use the single gun bag from when I purchased my gen 4 G21. Works fine for me. That's for when I go to the range. Just small enough to lug around. At home I have a Small clear tackle case from bass pro that has all me cleaning stuff in it. I use that after the range when I clean all my guns.

My dad and I have always used the dry boxes or ammo cans that still have good seals. The ones with the pull outs are great in my opinion just for the amount of storage.

I got mine at Academy for $20 about 6 years ago and thats what Ive been using and its still in great shape>

I use a plano tackle box for most of my gun cleaning supplies and small tools. I have a couple amo cans where I keep my solvents & piss cans separate from my cleaning rags/patches for safety. Another ammo box for bigger tools that can't fit into the Plano tackle box and other odds and ends.

I've been thinking of getting a tackle or small tool box for my cleaning supplies, too. I just have it all thrown in a bag. Not very convenient. :o

I've been using an older Plano tackle box for several years now. It's similar to their 6133 LARGE 3-TRAY BOX, except that the upper tray isn't segmented, making it perfect for 2- or 3-piece cleaning rods.

Plano tackle box here too.

I have a MTM shooters Box that I take to the range I keep my cleaning gear in it, It's like a fishing tackle box but the design is more shooter orientated. I inherited a WW-ll wooden .30 Cal ammo Box with my Dads cleaning equipment in it that I keep for the memory's .

PS Thanks Dad for a lifetime of shooting.

Plano tackle boxes, big one for big pieces, little one for little pieces.
