Choosing The Right Shooting Accessories

Shooting Accessories

Choosing the correct gun cleaning kit depends on what type of guns you will be cleaning. Every gun cleaning kit comes with different pieces that usually includes; rods, brushes, patches, solvents, lubricants, and sometimes tools. There are kits specific to calibers which usually the only differences are the gauges of the rods, length of the rods, and the size of the pre-cut cloth patches. A quality gun cleaning kit is relatively inexpensive and a must to keep your firearm in good working order.

The single most important shooting accessory that is often not considered and sometimes overlooked is hearing protection. As a firearms instructor and an NRA Range Safety Officer I am always amazed how many show up for instruction or to shoot at the range and have no hearing protection. Appropriate hearing protection is a must for hunters, and shooters of any experience and of all ages. Even one trip to the range with no hearing protection can cause injury to one’s hearing.

Hearing protection comes in several forms. To learn about the different types of hearing protection ranging from the disposable ear plugs all the up to the state-of-the-art electronic noise cancelling ear muffs you can read our reports and review our videos.
