CLEAN UP YOUR ACT.
HOPPE'S LEAD B GONE Lead and shooting go together, but when you're finished for the day, it's important to get all that plumbum off your hands to prevent lead deposits from finding their way into your mouth and then your bloodstream. Soap and water works, but some ranges--mine included--don't offer such amenities. That's where Lead-B-Gone ($13, HOPPES.COM) comes in. These hand wipes remove lead dust and other metal particles and are a quick, convenient way to clean up at the end of a range or gun-cleaning session. The lightly scented 6x7-inch wipes are durable for thorough cleaning, and 40 of them come in a standard hand-wipe container with top dispenser. Not for use on guns.
TETRA GUN WIPES I don't know about you, but I like my handguns to look good. That's especially so with my stainless pistols and revolvers because looks are why I choose stainless in the first place. But regardless of finish, I want to get carbon and other fouling off my handguns before I put them back in the holster or the safe after a range session. Tetra Gun's wipes ($8, TetraGunCare.com) are textured and have a carbon cleaner that makes quick work of carbon and other fouling, and they're also handy for wiping down internal parts. The flip-top container's small size makes it a convenient addition to your range bag or gun bench. Each container holds 50 3x5-inch wipes.
