    One thing I did notice about Froglube is it is slicker than the green snot it resembles. And I mean slick. I keep dropping pieces I've coated. It reminds me of that STP oil advertisement with the screwdriver, if you remember that.

    I tore down the slide on my Glock 30 today for the first time today (Thank you, Hickock45, for the fine tutorial Youtube video--highly reccommended for first timers.) and found it suprisingly clean, the extractor being the only really dirty part. After a thorough cleaning and reassembly, I treated the barrel and slide rails to a FL treatment and gave the gun a quick functional (pencil) check. My 6906 will get primary SD duty until I can get out to the range and proof test my work.

    I've only ever used the old military CLP so I've been doing a ton of research on modern CLPs to find a good one to try and have heard nothing but good reviews on Froglube so far. Total bonus that its all natural so its safe to handle and doesn't stink(wife won't kick me out into the cold garage to use it). I was leaning toward Gunzilla for a while for the same reasons but it looks like Froglube might be the way to go. I'll be tagging along to see what OldVet thinks after using it a bit more. Thanks for the review so far OldVet.

    Has anyone used Smooth-Kote and BP2000 from SentrySolutions as a combo? I have it on one of my Glocks now for about 3 months. The thing I like is there isn't any oil. This is a dry lube and it doesn't attract dirt. I measure the slide and guides before and after firing and so far there isn't any wear.

    I am about convinced to strip all my others and strictly use SentrySolutions. (I am in no way affiliated with this company).

    I've never used a dry lube, but I am wondering if there's any down side to using it? I normally use Hoppes Gun Lube and it works fine, but if dry lube (which don't attract dirt and grime as much) works just as well as wet lube, maybe I'll switch.

    I just started using Frog Lube recently. I found that I needed to use a blow dryer to warm the metal to get it to really work well, but once you do that it seems great. It's sort of nice unloading my pistol every night and having a minty smell. The clean-up after shooting was easier, too. I want to run a few hundred more rounds through this before I go all-in and apply it to everything else, but definitely so far so good.

    So far I haven't made any firm decision on Froglube. I had treated my Sig P226 with it and finally made it out to the local range to run a box of rounds thru it. The Sig ran fine (I expected it to) and cleanup was no easier/harder than any other gun product I've ever used. Have I seen anything about FL that would make me stand on a soapbox and shout out to the world it's a "must have"? Nope. Not yet. But I'll keep using it for a while longer. Then it will probably be set aside with the Gunzilla that I found no better or worse than anything else.

    As for the Sig, except for that first DA shot that went off into the netherworld somewhere, I shot it as well as I've shot anything, which is pretty good for my first time out with it.

    Well, I'm a Froglube believer now. I shot 40 rounds through my carry pistol for a quick qualification test, carried it a week, shot 200 rounds the next weekend at the range (that really hurts the wallet these days), and then cleaned it the following day. I used the blow drier (1250 watt) to warm the barrel (30 seconds or so), put some Froglube in it, let it sit 30 minutes, warmed it up again, and started cleaning. After doing this four times the barrel was perfectly clean (a big improvement over past experiences with other products). No wear anywhere on the pistol.

    This stuff just works, and it smells good too. The trick seems to be heat (I didn't heat the rest of the pistol as much - only 5-10 seconds). Coverage isn't as good or as complete without it. Now I'm going to start applying it to everything else.

    So does it attract dirt like oil? That's the reason I use a dry lube. I find I don't have to "clean".
