    You should always have some sort of lube on all of your guns... mechanical parts wear down over time, not keeping them lubed will speed up the process of wearing down. My father and I use Hoppes lube or Rem Oil on our Polymer based M&P's

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Go to Wally World. Get a tub of high temp wheelbearing grease. There are six points to lube on a Glock. You will not have any probs. I run my G19 and my G26 just as I've stated. View this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGobE...os=sMA0qXgWzwo
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I lube both my Glock 23 and 27 very lightly as the book says, it doesn't take much to keep them going.

    I use Gunzilla to clean my Glock 19 and Mil-tec1 grease on the rails to get the slide to be buttery smooth. Never had a single problem.

    Any guality gun lube on the 6 main areas and your good. It'll run dry, but like was stated here earlier, not best for the gun

    Do what the manual says...and yes, take note of the 6 points. I use a little CLP and it works fine.

    Mobile1 synthetic motor oil, wipe and relube every two weeks.
    I expect one quart should last a good long time.

    I've heard great things about the bearing grease, though. May have to give that a try...

    The manual says lube, so lube.
    I've started using Gunzilla, but I still like a little green marine grease applied lightly on the rails. But to be honest, I've never had any issue come up using any lube, being "gun" products or "auto" products.

    Mechanical parts like lube; people like name brands.

    Glock says use a drop of oil on the trigger bar connector junction but I use TW25 grease. I think Glockmeister sells a lube kit and says TW-25 grease is ok FP 10 on the other 5-6 spots referenced in manual

    Fixed post Doc Glock straightened me out.. my bad

    some good videos on youtube

    That is wrong. It says to place one drop of oil (NOT grease) just under the connector hook. If it's grease, it won't run down like it needs to. This is directly from the latest armorer's manual.

    Edit: Erich beat me by a couple of minutes, but his reference shows the same info.
