Wolfgang got me a sweet rifle cleaning box/stand. All my cleaning stuff fits nicely in it, and the carrying handle means I can take it to the range and clean the rifles after shooting them there. And it's made in the USA.

Happy Father's Day
It's a very nice relaxing day in Florida. Hope you have one, too.
UPDATE 19 JUNE 2022 15:37: Man, that Garand was filthy. I used half a package of bore patches and now it's only a little dirty. I've only put maybe 100 rounds through it, so it must have come dirty from CMP. They didn't replace the barrel, so I suspect that there's some ROK soldier who got away from his last range day without cleaning it.
And I am shooting mil-surp .30-06, which could be dirty. With this cleaning case/stand I don't have an excuse for not having a sparkling clean barrel.
The Queen Of The World brought out a bowl of warm Murphy's Oil Soap and it turns out that the stock was also filthy. After a good scrub and some Liquid Gold, it shines good enough for a parade ground .
I guess I need to do the same on the Enfield now ...
And in answer to the questions in the comments, the box is made out of heavy duty plastic. You would never shoot from this on the bench, but it looks like it would handle the WWII rifles, hunting rifles and shotguns, and ARs. And since it's plastic it would catch any spills of Hoppe's or Ed's Red. I didn't even unroll my cleaning mat.
And all the cleaning stuff fits in the box when it's closed up. Nifty. I'm pretty darn happy with this.
