  1. First Gun; Cleaning tips?

    PK380
    Hello - I'll be picking up my first firearm this weekend (yay for pk380!). Before I do that though, I was hoping someone could help point out what I should look for in terms of a cleaning kit. I've looked around, but there are so many options (and none were specific to the PK380 that I could...
