    Dittos, I know there are better products out there but every time I open a bottle of Hoppes #9 I remember Dad and I coming home from hunting and cleaning our weapons. Great memories and I think it's one of lifes best smells. My wife grew up with it too and has never complained.

    I carry a Colt Delta Elite 10mm in Milt Sparks VM2 with 2 extra magazines on my belt. This is normally worn on a belt under my bib overalls and works great for me. My wife carries a Walther PPS .40 w/Crossbreed holster.

    Coffee cans---effective use of storage space. One can contains pulled 147gr JHPs from 'Enforcer' 9mm, one can contains the brass with live primers still intact, the other----tracer compound or thermite-can't exactly remember.

    Another vote for Eds' Red. I use Hoppes #9 for aftershave. Any woman that doesnt like the smell is instantly disqualified and banned from my home.

    ????? Hoppe's #9 is PERFUME to a gunner! :) Always seek out a future mate who appreciates it :)

    I use Ed's Red most of the time, Hoppe's when needed.

    I use Rem Oil spray for a quick, light external spray down, particularly for my carry gun.
