What would you recommend for cleaning the shotgun at the shooting range?

When I travel a lot, I only get to clean the shotgun at the range. What works for this situation?

Can someone explain what 50/50 or 60/40 means when it comes to shotguns?

50/50 means the gun shoots flat. On a patterning board if you center the shot, the pellets of the pattern will be distributed approx. 50% above the middle line and 50% below the middle line. A gun that shoots flat has the middle beat and the front beat... Read More
