    Preferred Lubricant?

    Obviously there are tons of lubricant/cleaning products out there. What is the preferred choice of product for EDCs? What about range guns? I could start a poll but I think that would be too hard to make concise given the options.

    Personal choices:
    EDC-Gunslick foam to clean barrel, wash clean with water afterwards and dry, CLP on manufacturer specified lube points.
    Range guns- Gunslick to clean barrel, manual cleaning as needed elsewhere, Rem Oil liberally but not in excess, leave a thin film on known rust prone parts for protection.

    Hopes Number 9 to clean, then either Rem-Oil or MilTec-1 depending on the gun.

    Frog Lube, only because it smells good so my wife doesn't mind if I clean my guns in the house.

    ...I've changed from RemOil to Marvel Mystery Oil because I got tired of finding a gun I'd wiped down last week dry to the touch and noticed some pin-***** rust forming on my 20 ga single that lurks in the garage...

    I like Slip 2000.
    SLIP 2000 3 PACK : SLIP 2000 3 PACK | Brownells

    I also like Shooters Choice® Bore Cleaner and Conditioner : Cabela's since the wife does not complain about the smell of the solvent. Smells like oranges.

    In a pinch, just about anything will do, according to Pat Rogers.
