Default Cleaning Kit Recommendation

Hello. I just bought a Glock19 (9mm) and will eventually buy a 12 gauge shotgun with a 28” barrel. I don’t want to have 2 different cleaning kits. Does anyone have a recommendation for a universal cleaning kit? I really want the kit to be durable and hold the tools well. I like the nylon carriers better but it seems like the plastic might be better. Id be cleaning the firearms in my house but would like it to be “travel friendly” so I can at least leave it in my car when at the range. Hoping to keep it under $100. Thanks

There are several very comprehensive kits available under $100. As an example, the Otis Elite, which would seemingly clean just about anything.

However, the thing is, you likely don't need to be able to clean anything, and you're going to want to replace things like brushes on the stuff you do clean with some regularity. I'd recommend looking at the Pro-Shot line of products, and just buying what you need. I think their stuff is first-rate, in particular, their cleaning rods are exceptional.

I like the DAC Winchester universal one and it grows with you. if you only have 1 firearm it might be a little overkill but for $40 its good quality. The brushes and jags are really good. Mops are so so. If you ever get into rifles do not use this cleaning rod on any halfway decent rifle.

CLP, bore snakes, a rag or an old T shirt, and a toothbrush, that's seriously all you need

^^^^ I bought a kit and rarely use more than a little of it. Just use oil, snakes, cleaner/CLP, rags, and your ex-wife's toothbrush.

Otis cable system. No long cleaning rods to get bent over time. Everything is interchangeable and individual replacement parts can be ordered.

I admit those Otis cables are great for patches for stuff that you can't use a rod from chamber to muzzle, like an M14/M1A. I'm not a fan of cleaning from the muzzle to chamber
