For all my Everyday Carriers out there, we have to understand the way of the EDC world. It is a very large concept and there are many facets. So for the purpose of simplicity, we are going to focus on one thing at a time. In due time, we will build this wealth of knowledge and graduate to the next level together. In this series, firearm maintenance will be the main focus.
The reality side is, no one likes to do chores. Everyone likes to attend the party, there's great food, dancing, and games... just tons of fun. After the music ends and the party is over, nobody likes to stick around to clean. This idea can also be applied to gun owners and their firearms. I am guilty of this too sometimes. The Everyday Carrier rely on our tools daily. A dirty firearm will cause unreliability over time, jams, failure to fire, and catastrophic failures. We have all seen those YouTube videos where guns jam all the time. Thankfully, it's the bad guy getting the jam most of the time. Just take a look at some of these videos!
We in the EDC world, the Everyday Carrier are professionals, from the training we take, to the tools we train with and the tools we use. Professionals make sure that their tools are in tip-top-shape and reliable. Murphy's Law passes the Everyday Carrier by most of the time, but when he's persistent, we kick his butt with style, i.e custom trigger kits, Benchmade SOCP Dagger, Mechnix Gloves, etc, and etc. Everyday Carriers have the tools and tricks up their sleeves to get themselves out of real sticky situations and are looked to by their peers for solutions to their problems. Some of you can really make James Bond blush.
So, because the last thing we want to do is get a jam, failure to fire, or catastrophic failure, I want to point you in the right direction. The 1st video in this series we will be looking at a product you can use to clean your firearm. The BT-101 Cleaning Kit by Breakthrough Clean Technologies. Let's look at what comes in the kit....
2 oz. Bottle of Breakthrough Military-Grade solvent
2 oz. Bottle of Battle Born High-Purity Oil
2 packets of Battle Born Grease fortified with PTFE
Double-ended nylon utility brush
14″ x 14″ micro-fiber towel
This kit is not all you need to do a thorough cleaning, but it will be setting you in the right direction. Like I stated in the beginning, one thing at a time...😊 check out the unboxing of the BT-101 kit below.
Let's continue on our journey to being professional Everyday Carriers. Stay tuned for the next video which will be on "breaking down the firearm" also known as taking the firearm apart. In my case this will be the Glock 19 my Everyday Carry firearm. Hang in there for the rest of the series because we're going to have some more learning and fun.
