    No doubt, Hoppes #9.

    CLP smells like it's not just going to clean my gun, but clean my skin to the bone. Works great, but I just can't stand the smell.

    Kleenbore Formula 3 Gun Conditioner. Smells great. Mixes well with bourbon and ice.
    Be reasonable. See things my way.

    I love the Hoppes No. 9. I've been using it ever since my dad showed me how to clean my guns as a child. If a smell can conjure up memories, Hoppes No.9 is the one that reminds me of many pleasant hours spent grinning and cleaning.

    Not so strange a post.

    Did you ever stop to think though, what chemicals must be used to give off that aroma that you're inhaling?

    Believe it or not, (even though I like the aromas), I try to always wear gloves and a mask when I clean my firearms.

    Though I do have sentimental childhood memories of Hoppes #9, I prefer the smell of CLP. I like it when my wife dabs a bit of CLP behind each ear. It's a real mood setter.
