I've read lots about using them and even seen them in use but where can I get them? Which ones are good to get?

Brownells, MidwayUSA, Sinclair International (they are a brownells company, IIRC) for starters.

What are you looking for a boreguide for? Bolt action, AR-15, other?

These (http://www.boretech.com/products/boreguide.shtml) are pretty good.

Looking for ones for a Ruger 10/22 and a Browning BAR 30-06.

Those things above look like it would cover part of the barrel you need to run the patch through do they not? The one I saw a guy use at a gun shop just slid right in the end to just protect the muzzle from getting messed up from the cleaning rod. Is that not what I want?

Is that not what I want?A bore guide does not protect the muzzle, only the end of the chamber and the throat, it slides into the chamber at the breach and is seated at the transition from end of chamber to throat. It sounds like you are describing a muzzle protector. I never use one, as I clean my rifles (and pistols) from the breach (even my Ruger 10/22 and others which do not permit the use of a bore guide).

Well, maybe a muzzle protector is what I want then. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

No problem, wish I could suggest a good one, but I haven't any experience using any. :)
