or do you just lay them on a piece of carpet or something on your cleaning bench?

If you use a rifle vise which one do you have, presently I use a homemade cleaning rest that just doesn't work as well as I'd like.
I'm thinking of getting one but there are so many out there that I'd like to know which ones everyone thinks work well.
Price really isn't a factor but ease of use is.

Clean it on the bench. Works well.

No.

Poll?

When cleaning bolt actions I do. Not my ar or my ak.

I use a hotel pool towel on my desk.

I've got a roll-around tool box with a foam insert cut out on the top of it. Drawers are convenient for parts soaking in CLP and the locking bar is great to have so I can keep my 1yr old out of everything.

Nope. I move my keyboard to the side and clean it on a drop cloth right on my desk.

No. I sit in front of the TV and lay down some newspaper and watch a good war movie while cleaning the guns.

I've got a Sinclair rifle rest for cleaning. Works well for bore access. I use a vice block in the mag well and crank it onto my bench for cleaning the lower.

Yes, for most of my long guns.

I guess I must be a bit more of a slob when I clean mine.
If I were to clean my rifles in my house in front of my TV I'd have great black stains on my white carpet in no time - especially when I clean my BPCR's....

This. I use an old T-shirt as a drop cloth, and I sit "indian-style" in the living room floor. That way i can watch TV while I'm cleaning.

I just pad the big vise on my work bench and use that.

This.

Just put a old towel over my legs to keep any CLP from dripping on me and go to it. I use Bore Snakes anyway so there's no need to keep things lined up and steady.

Regular vice with vice head protectors.

Tipton Best Gun Vice - works

3-1/2" Swivel Vise mounted on the bench with Magnetic Polymer Jaw Protectors. For AR's I use a DPMS claw for upper and a commercial magazine block for lowers. You'll appreciate having one if you get it.

Ditto.

Yes. And I use a bore guide too. Its easier to clean when the rifle isn't flopping around.
