In addition to all the great suggestions, I recommend you watch a few YouTube videos on cleaning the SR22. See what tools are needed and what solvents, lubes are being used. I watch Hickok45 videos on various pistols, techniques, holsters etc. He uses Ballistoil and I have been using it lately also.Is there anything special I need to know regarding a cleaning kit? I have a Ruger SR22 Pistol. Can I just purchase a basic cleaning kit at Dick's? Thanks.
