I always take a cleaning kit with me. I like the Otis GI because the smaller "Military Style Issue" fits in my cargo pants leg pocket. Still have the good ol' rod for home use.

I have and use both. Don't really have a preference either way, I use which ever one I grab out of the cleaning kit first.

Oh I couldn't agree more, still use the Aluminum Rod.
I do use the Bore Snake for the Lighter Cleaning Duties. If there is such a thing.

I dont use either of those. A good cleaning rod works better. wipe it down between use

Yeah, I've come to that conclusion also. I finally drilled the recommended cleaning rod hole in the receiver of my 10/22 so I don't have to use the Bore Snake or Otis cable system.
