I shoot every day in the winter, spring and summer so I'd wear my guns out that way. Since it's deer season presently, the gunfire has tapered of to nothing and I need a fix.After I go out shooting, I clean that weapon. That includes a complete fieldstrip, inspection,cleaning,oiling and grease. I feel that my weapon is my best friend. I take care of it, it will take care of me. But, that is me, it has been beat into my head. Think of it this way, in time on need,when you squeeze the trigger, you want to hear a bang, not a click. IMHO
If you like to pet your gun.This thread is vaguely erotic.
I use tetra grease on some parts and ballistol on my black powder guns. There are a lot of oils that will also work well for a gun such as Mobil 1 as will bearing grease in small amounts. I much prefer things that don't attract dust and dirt though such as molly grease or tetra. I also prefer CLP however if we have a SHTF situation it would be a little tuff to come by I would imagine.
