SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Super Brush, makers of Swab-its® brand firearms cleaning swabs for every job, announced that they are returning as a sponsor of the Volunteer State’s largest IDPA match, the Music City Cup II, which takes place this weekend at the Music City Tactical Shooters’ range in Dickson, Tennessee.

This is the second year for the Music City Cup, which exploded last year as Tennessee’s largest gathering of IDPA competitors and quickly became one of IDPA’s major must-attend matches. Despite the near crippling impact hurricane Sandy has had on the east coast, organizers still expect upwards of 200 shooters to compete in the 13-stage event.

“When we started the Music City Cup last year we never expected it to become Tennessee’s biggest IDPA competition. Now, thanks to the generous support of sponsors like Swab-its, the Music City Cup II is one of IDPA’s premier matches and certainly one of the South’s best,” said Michael Bresson, match director for the Music City Cup.

“Swab-its is proud to once again sponsor the Music City Cup and help continue the expansion of shooting opportunities for IDPA members in the Volunteer State. Our support for the Music City Cup II is part of our continuing commitment to promote the shooting sports,” said Cathy Desorcy, product manager for Swab-its. “Thanks to the feedback we get from Music City Cup competitors on our Swab-its brand Bore-tips and Gun-tips, we’re making sure that we continue to provide shooters with the kind of innovative cleaning products they need.”

As part or their sponsorship, Swab-its has donated packs of their popular Bore-Tips™ and Gun-Tips™ firearms cleaning swabs to be distributed at the match.

Designed to be lint-free and reusable, foam Bore-tips from Swab-its provide the ultimate in barrel bore cleaning with their tight bore-fitting 360-degree cleaning surface, delivering improved barrel cleaning and maximum lubrication. Bore-tips are available in a six-piece pack in .357cal/9mm, .22cal, .243cal, or .30cal, and in a five-piece pack for either .40cal or .45cal.

Gun-tips from Swab-its are lint-free, reusable foam swabs that offer gun owners superior firearms detailing versatility. Used in conjunction with Bore-tips as part of a regular firearms cleaning and lubricating regimen, the Gun-tips swab kits give hunters, sportsmen, and gunsmiths the ability to protect and preserve their firearms like never before. Gun-tips come in a variety of shapes, sizes and lengths to ensure cleaning and lubricating of all parts of the firearm, while leaving no residue of lint commonly found in other cleaning devices.

With Swab-its, you Clean It Like You Mean It.
