Yup. Farmers have used that for decades. Nothing gets as rusty as farm equipment, especially if it's around cows.

What are you guys/gals using.
I use the (owned by Hoppe's) MPRO formula as there's no terrible smell, etc. I've used Gunzilla as well but found the MPRO cleaner seems to clean a bit better than the combination cleaner/oil of Gunzilla. Good stuff though!

Kroil for the rifling and general cleaning and CLP7 for lube.

Dry Lube for bolts/actions on 22's.

Hornary One Shot or Ezz-Ox for metal protection.

I'm not overly picky. CLP and grease. Personally I think it's more important in how you use, rather than what you use. A lot of folks apply way to much lube in places it's not necessary.

I fired my freinds glock and could physically feel the grit accumulated in the trigger.....literally loaded with unnecessary oil which was attracting and trapping grit in the darn trigger.
