I personally use Rem Oil. I've used it for all my guns over the years and not a single one of them has failed me yet. (Knock on wood...)

Slip2000 EWL. It is by far the most superior lube I've used. One of my ARs is sitting at 2000rds right now without a cleaning, and it's running like a top with EWL.

Word. Gunzilla for cleaning, and slip2000 ewl for lubrication.

Slip 2000 EWL for a pistol? I only use that for my ARs, I use standard Slip 2000 for my pistols.

You can use it for anything. It works great. I just use it for everything because that way I only need to buy one lube.

Guns like the USP, Glocks, M&Ps and the lot require very little lubricant to function correctly. Guns like 1911s tend to require more lubrication.

I am a Slip2000 fanboy. I use their CarbonKiller and 725 Cleaner/Degreaser for cleaning. Other cleaners work pretty decently as well. Hoppes #9 is one of the greatest smells ever. Thing is, Slip2000 products work phenomenally well, and they're biodegradable and nontoxic. I like that they won't kill my dogs if I drop some on the carpet and one of my dogs decides to lick the carpet. Also a good move if you have kids; especially kids who like to lick the floor.

It's all that I use for lube, although I had always been under the assumption that the EWL was thicker and the standard was better for pistols.

Took my girl to the shooting range for the (her) first time yesterday. She was very anxious and nervous around and about guns, so I figured maybe inviting her out to the range with me after a "sit-down" style home-class about gun safety would be a good way to help her stop (completely) fearing the unknown. I walked her through all of the do's and don't's of gun safety and she (visually) absorbed and (in action) respected all the information, which was a big relief.

We took my Springfield XD9 (Service 4") to the range and put about 80 rounds downrange before I felt she had enough for her first day, and we did have a really fun time doing it. She handled the gun safely and was a pretty good shot for a beginners.

The only negative of the event was that there were two guys (in the lane directly beside us) shooting their Taurus Judge... and it was understandably intimidating for her because of the ominous in-door percussion and breathtakingly loud detonation. Fortunately for us they could only fire 5 shots before having to reload, but damn that gun is no fun to shoot beside.

Hope everyone's new year was fun and safe!
-Chris

My girlfriend admitted she's actually never even handled a gun before (as far as shooting goes). We're going to have some quality time together and a date to the shooting range. Guess I'll be breaking out the .22LR for her before handing her the 9mm.

That sucks about having a hand cannon going off next to you with her first session. Hopefully she wasn't completely turned off by it and she'll want to go back again.

Received this via email. I'm not big on sharing forwarded emails, but this seems plausible and serves as a good reminder to pay attention to your surroundings and who might be targeting you as a gun owner:

Quote:
This is from a local gun collecting club, the Houston Gun collector's Assn.



Public service announcement:



While I was in a Denver gun store today, my car was tagged on the wheel in the parking lot. The gangs do this on wheels or bumpers at gun stores, shooting ranges, gun shows etc. Later when you are parked at a restaurant, hotel, or other location that’s less well guarded or under video surveillance, other gang members spot the marker and break into the car for a quick gun grab. This is so RAMPANT in San Antonio where we were for a National shoot this summer, the police chief of that county came out to brief the 400 participants of our competition. Too bad three teams had already been victimized the first day. This is the first I’ve heard of this in Denver . Please pass this info along to your 2nd amendment list.




This next comment from a Gunsite instructor:
I don’t know how widespread this is becoming , but the info regarding the NSCA Nationals in San Antonio is correct, as all of us who compete in sporting clays know. Competitors there were having their vehicles marked with a small adhesive dot on the rear license plate or rear bumper, then followed for miles and having their vehicles quickly and efficiently broken in to when parked for lunch etc.
Some crews were working the parking lot at the Nationals itself. 27 high end shotguns were taken there recently. They know when 1400 shooters with high $$ competition guns are in town.
BTW I shot with a young man who was trying out a new gun at the Nationals. He and his father lost all their guns and equipment while making a quick stop for lunch at a BBQ place in Corpus Christi the month before.

Think I'm going to get started on my nfa trust this week. Found a later who is very active on local forum who will write it up for $300 which seems pretty reasonable. Wish I could find 2 other local non forum members it drops the price to $200 a trust.
