It was one degree yesterday in Ephrata so I took them out of the freezer and put them outside to warm up.

P.S. remember oil and grease attract dirt .
I leave my firearms almost dry when taking them to the range. Some are covered in oil that I haven't shot in awhile. But before I do I have to clean the oil out.

I don't use these and wouldn't, but just to stir up trouble.

I don't use them either, but that was interesting.
I'd imagine that the roller coaster lube would be a lot cheaper, since it probably comes in bulk.

It gives the prices and all seem comparable.

Also..."If you order Tracklube+ it comes in a brown paper wrapped box from a company called “Amusement Lubrications Specialties” and that your longtime mail lady will never look at you the same way again."

This made me laugh.

The post is long and tedious but chemistry used to be my obsession so I kind of eat this up when I get into it.

I am new here but let me add my 2 cents.
I have found everyone has a opinion on gun lubes. There is always a new wonder product coming to market. And many improvements have been made due to this.
I use Mobil 1 on all my guns. Works great and a quart lasts a long time.
I also use a little synthetic grease the rails of my 1911's.

My standard answer to the gun lube threads use to be WD-40. Just to stir the pot.
However I won't do that here.

WD-40 isn't a lubricant.

I know.
But it sure lubed the Gun Lube discussion.
As your reply shows. LOL

My best friends son-in-law was a Marine in the Army. He served two tours, one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. I sent him a very large care package, including CLP. He wrote me back and thanked me for everything, but said all they used for their guns was Gunzilla. I switched immediately, and have never tried anything else, but I will look at FrogLube.

I have found Gunzilla to gum up if you are not using your firearms often. I had to field strip and clean my shotgun while waterfowl hunting. When I returned home I check my other firearms and found them gummed up also. There is a previous post that says the same thing about Frog Lube.
Just my experience.

I haven't noticed any gumming myself. I am willing to try anything. What are you using now?

For waterfowling in the heavy salt of the gulf off the Texas coast I haven't found anything better than Ballistol. It's one and done as the mineral oil neutralizes the salts. I have used regular gun oil and it has to be heavily used for about 5 consecutive days after the hunt. Not so with Ballistol.
