Simple Survival Tips - Snake In A Can

Sometimes there are certain pieces of gear you may need to carry that can pose unique problems if they are not stored properly. Sometimes your gear may need to be kept dry and clean to insure you get the best possible use out of that gear item when needed. It may also need to be carried in a manner that makes it portable as well.

A bore snake for your .22 or .223 caliber rifle can be easily carried in an old snuff can. Old snuff cans are easily procured and offer a great way to store your bore snake. This helps to keep it from snagging on other items, keeps it clean and dry till needed and makes it easy to store in a gear pouch or your pocket. When you need to clean your rifle, it will be readily available for your use. Secure it with some tape around the outside and it’s fairly water-tight as well.

Got bore snake?

After spending money on a bore snake, I didn't want to have to buy another piece of gear to store it in and an old snuff can has worked great for me. It's easy to pack and there when I need it.

The bore snakes for my shotguns is a different story...

Thanks anon.

Anon 6:18 here - I hear you. I've kept my bore snakes (rimfire and centefire) in a zip top baggie to prevent getting crud and oil all over my other stuff. This seems more compact.

Yeah, the shotgun model is kind of bulky, that is why I haven't picked one up yet. The way I clean out my 20 gauge and up bores are pieces of old T-shirts / underwear (clean of course :^)), that polishes it pretty well, and is re-usable.
