Hoppes #9 smells like I'm going to get cancer from it, IMHO. Not a real fear just smells scary.
Murphy's Oil Soap. Great for cleaning muzzleloaders!
Hoppe's #9. I still have the little glass bottle from when I was cleaning my .410, about ten times a day, when I was a kid 40+ years ago.

Hoppe's because it smells like the old candy circus peanuts to me. :)

No question....Eezok. It's like Polo Sport for my guns!
Slow is smooth.....smooth is fast.
Not cleaner.... just give me the smell of rounds going off in the morning!
