Never turn down a set of free chopsticks. A gun owner can find all kinds of uses for them, especially for cleaning. I have used them for years to get rags down into the various cracks and crevices you encounter while cleaning a gun. The best part is that they are free with a meal at some Chinese food restaurants. The worst part is they often don’t break apart cleanly (which makes them less useful) and they don’t always lost very long.
Apparently I am not the only one who uses them for working on guns because Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group (UCWRG) is now making ShopStix – a more durable alternative to disposable chopsticks made specifically for gun related stuff. These are made from the same polymer as their excellent Rifle Grip 23 (which is still my favorite). UCWRG touts these as useful for cleaning and small parts handling… or as an eating utensil.
