    I have several in all the calibers and really like using them. First thing I do is soak the barrel then clean the rest of the gun. In the end, I run a Boresnake through the barrel about three times and it's all clean.

    I remember people in the past stating they didn't work well but for me it does. No problems at all.

    Well, usually I install Linux, thats the best way to clean a system. Windows is like one big virus...

    Never used one on a pistol but have used them on a couple rifles. Never had any problems with mine. Only significant issue I have heard from others is that occasionally the "string" that is used to pull it through the barrel has snapped causing folks some problems.
