Hi, I just got a Walther P1 9mm and a Tipton 12" cleaning rod, which does not come with a jag or loop. When cleaning your pistols, do you use jag or loop on you rod when passing patches thru the barrel? I'll order a 8-32 jag or loop to go with my rod but don't know which way of cleaning of more effective and conventional. Also, for 9mm pistol, what's the optimal size of patches? I saw Midway has 1-3/4 square ones for 9mm, .357. Thanks for your help.
