    Anybody try it yet? Opinions? I use pretty much every other product from them,and after picking up my first new handgun. I been wondering what kind of oil to use anyway.

    I have used their automotive synthetic oil, and it's really good stuff. I'm sure their gun oil is good too. It wouldn't hurt to try it.

    Sweet. I'll post up my impressions once I get in it. I'm confident its a great product. I am definitely an automatic handgun newbie,as this will be used on my first.

    I use a synthetic in some spots of some pistols , It is a 10-45 motor oil that has a moly lube enbeded ... YMMV and commercial products are fine .

    YMMV? I don't think I plan on carrying my current (And only) handgun,I am considering Kel-Tec, Glock or XD. I'd like to use the Royal purple in that too...

    Ghettokracker71 yes YMMV , use what you are comfortable with as a lube , few commercial products actually do harm , its all about your environment , cleaning habits , round count , ect.. Some may be better , some may not , few will run a gun enough to know . I have folks who run their bedside guns on 3 in 1 sewing machine oil , and its fine for the use they put a gun to .

    Edited to add : in case anyone does not know YMMV is Your Mileage May Vary ... ie you may well have a different opinion or even results .

    Your mileage mary vary! Got ya. Had to google it, haha. I am not sure what my habits will entail seeing as my budget may vary (attempting to change jobs.). I legally own my handgun, but I cannot legally purchase handgun ammunition for it,yet. I've taken it to the range once with my father to try it out,and ran ~300 rounds through it. But I plan on joining a range at going bare minimal once every two weeks.

    Thanks for the replies, redneck.
