    I have a bunch. Each product has it's intended or specific use, and sometimes I have more than one product for certain things. Hoppes or Butch's for bores in general, Break Free CLP for last bore wipe and other parts of guns not particularly prone to leading, Shooter's Choice Rust Prevent for the outsides and preservation, Zero Friction or Mil-tech.
    If there was one sure fire best product for everything---I do beleive I wouldn't need all the space I'm taking up now for the firearms upkeep!

    I like break-free CLP for generic all-around use.

    Wow. I bet your guns and cars are always immaculately clean. You're the guy that blinds people with the suns reflection off the glass-like highly polished hood of your car as you pass aren't you?

    The guns are still always kept as close to immaculately clean as possible. The cars---well, they used to be, and there were better days--I do what I can with weekly monsoons and living on a dirt road, but that's just a washing at best. Two years ago I was doing car/truck shows with an everyday driver and getting trophies. Those days are past. ;)

    After removing any wood grips or stocks, and doing a complete breakdown, hot water and Dawn dish detergent gets them as clean as ever. You would be surprised to see the gunk that comes out of the gun (old solvent, grease, oil, etc.).

    Yeah I told my son that the day I received ammo it was in the 90's
    and the ammo was so hot I had to put it in the fridge to cool it down!

    Hoppe's 9 to clean fouling from the bore on the rare occasions I shoot lead. Breakfree CLP for everything else.

    Hoppes and Rig are all I've ever used. When you think you've just about come away with a spot free patch, run some Rig through it, and see a difference. (Rig's a once a year deal though)

    What's even more important (considering a good brand like Hoppes is still cheap) is the patches. Don't be like Kevin James and buy a 100 pairs of underwear for a dollar - get some GOOD patches. Leaving residue in your barrel is never a good thing, nor in your action. So try and find some patches that don't shred - and get a good shop rag to finish the job off at the end.
    Some people don't deserve saving.

    See how things go? Say something here and they'll hold you to it. Not that they don't outright believe you when you say something, it's just some sort of right of passage. I'll always back up my words even if tested.

    We're all just getting to know each other a little bit better. With all my hopes, I'd wish nobody here ever insinuate I'd be lying about my life or what I've experienced. For all those who test or dis-believe----YCKMA. How ya like me now?

    I like Hoppes 9. I also use it as a cologne when trolling gun shows for babes.
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and Ió
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
