TIP: When dealing with a gun the first step you should do before cleaning it is make sure that it is not loaded.  With a muzzle loader you will have to take the breach plug out of the back side of the barrel.  If this is not done the gun could fire unexpectedly.

1. Round up all of the supplies that are listed below.

-Dirty Gun
-Ram Rod
-Breech Plug Wrench
-Dry patches
-Knight EZ Clean spray
-Breech Plug greese
-Rem Oil (any gun oil will work)

   Tip: Lay out all the supplies before hand to save time, and trips back and forth from where they are stored.
