First, I try to shrink the portable silo over my belt. That helps a lot in seated position. I will do lots of NPOA practice, not actually firing, just testing the solidity of my position and hold. ...

Like supersharp, I will use my JB's on a VFG pellet to clean a tough carbon ring out of the chamber. Then, to avoid smearing it into the bore, I will use a wet patch on a carbon-fiber cleaning rod...

I have several and recommend them. Their jags, brushes and patches are also excellent.

I would get the rifle that works best for her and if available for it, install a set of Tech-Sights TSR-200. It's an excellent aperture system.
