Harbor Freight here too. I don't see them wearing out any time soon and I'm not worried about my rifles getting some sort of metal poisoning from inferior metal ;)

I hit up my dentist maybe 20 years ago for any spare dental picks he might have. He gave me around 15 worn or slightly damaged high quality professional picks of various styles and shapes that he had replaced with new ones. I find more often that wooden toothpicks work best for cleaning crud out of plastic and wood grips, exterior grooves on guns, etc., and areas where you wouldn't want to risk any scratching. The metal dental picks have their occasional use too in hard to get to areas, as well as stubborn areas like lead buildup around where a revolver's barrel and cylinder merge. Check with your dentist. He'll probably just give you some of his older picks.
