    I have the standard Hoppe's #9 Gun Oil that I have been using for a long time. I watched a video on youtube and a gentleman on their said it's better to use grease because it will stay where you put it. That makes sense to me. So I am curious to know what everyone else here uses.

    I to use no9 hopps,I use it very spariingly,I would think if you used grease it would be harder to clean and would collect alot of dirt.But maybe iim wrong

    I have not ordered the SBGO yet... so I use Synthetic motor oil H-D 20W50 Syn3 its always handy when you work at a H-D dealership and I clean and re lube my guns after shooting them ( I know I don't have to but I like to ) so it works for me

    I still have my old Hoppes cleaning kits, brushes, etc. from the 1960s.

    Old habits are hard to break.....(unless something better comes along?)

    A mix of hoppes gun oil and Mobil 1 synthetic gear oil. Outer barrel and rails get Gunslick grease. So good that my stored guns still don't need a re-lube after a year in storage, but do it anyway for principal. :D

    I've been using SBGO since I won a drawing for it here a year ago.

    I use it on more than just guns, though. Anything that I want to stay lubricated long term... hinges, vise, etc. It's good stuff.
