And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Hey, Joel, that's a good idea that I left out. I always wear some sort of latex gloves when handling those cleaning chemicals. If they can "eat" copper, they probably aren't good for your skin!
As long as we're on the cleaning subject, I usually use a silicon impregnated cloth or a light coat of gun oil to wipe off fingerprints and protect the outside of the barrel and metal parts. What about you guys?

I do too use a light coat of gun oil on the outside with a gun cleaning patch. Then I use a Q tip for getting into the tight areas in the scope mount. That gives the rifle a brand new shine.

All the things onehorse said are great, I end my cleaning with a slightly damp patch with Rem-oil this seems to do the storage trick.
