    Mine just came today along with Weapon Shield in the mail.

    I was going to use Gunzilla to clean and Weapon Shield for lube.

    I also have a can of Gun Scrubber and Hoppes #9.

    However, my wife hates the smell of Hoppes. Personally, I like to sit around and sniff Hoppes.

    My wife notices when her toothbrush smells like Hoppes #9; she doesn't notice when I use Gunzilla. I love the stuff!

    So I've been using Gunzilla now for a little while following the procedure above. I was skeptical at first, but after using it several times on several of my weapons I've got to say it becomes faster and easier with repeated use. Guns don't get as dirty and they are easier to clean. Quick and easy one product process. I'm officially converted!

    I've this ---><--- close to ordering a bottle and giving it a try. I've no problems with my current cleaning and oiling, save smell. I can't stand it. I'll most likely still use HTG on the slide rails.

    I was happy with what I used, but now it seems so much easier and faster with one product. Now I just need to find a pistol bore snake for 9mm and 40. I still use a thin coat of gun grease on the rails.

    I did that but as I understand it once you clean with Gunzilla you leave a lubricating protective film on your weapon. Gunzilla will work at breaking down whatever lubricant you put on top of it.
    You might want to do the same test I did. Clean your weapon with Gunzilla wipe it down. Add a drop or two of Gunzilla as a lubricant and leave it on wet if it will make you feel better. I used to. Go shoot your gun pay attention to how it shoots. Is it sticking, gritty or hotter feeling? Or is it smoother, cooler running? After every mag break it down look for signs of wear especially on those areas that you know show wear. See anything new? Keep shooting until you see signs of wear or you run out of ammo. My bet is you will run out of ammo first.

    I did that with every single one of my guns. They all ran smoother cleaner and cooler with just Gunzilla. Even the AR and 10/22. Now I run all my guns dry with just Gunzilla saves me a few cents and a couple of maintenance steps. Plus they are all even easier to clean as there is not any residual oil or any of the dust, grit, and dirt that oil/lubricants attracts to remove

    OK...you people convinced me...just ordered an 8 oz to try it.

    Well I have a gripe about Gunzilla! I was told an 8oz bottle would last me a long time because you don't need to use much. Yeah right! Whenever I try to put just a skosh on 1 little spot, the spray thing hangs then I get a lot. I'm looking for a very small drop squeeze bottle to use instead. Oh the stuff is great, the spray thing sucks! Tip: since you have to pay shipping, buy the 8oz or larger size.

    Yep, the sprayer is hard to control. I've used some alternative methods of applying. I've also noticed I liked it more on subsequent cleanings than the first time I cleaned my guns with it. After the first cleaning, I was like, "I don't see anything special about it." The second cleaning I was more impressed and got more impressed with it in subsequent ones.

    I got the bottle with the little twist top and use Q-Tips to apply in tight spaces. I don't like anything in a spray bottle, very wasteful.
    I haven't been out to the range is a fews weeks to see how the stuff works after the initial cleaning session. It's too hot. Hard to focus when sweat is dribbling in the eyes. The jury is still out on Gunzilla at this point. No smell is a big positive, but effectiveness hasn't been determined yet, for me.
