It's not just guns!

My old Italian tailor used to complain to me all the time about customers who would bring dirty clothes to him for alterations because they figured they would clean them afterwards..........

I remember a picture of a federal swat guy shortly after 9/11 on the cover of Newsweek with his Aimpoint on backwards!

We still laugh about the guy who put his vest on over his firearm so he couldn't get to it........

Got a wallpaper picture in my file of a cop from some big NE city, holding her AR15/M16 ready to shoot up a building or somebody in it---with the magazine in backwards. Ace

I used to use that picture in a power point - she is actually covering a suspect - or at least thinks she was.

I am not sure it was NYC but it was up in the Northeast.

Coincidentally I recently changed my off duty firearm from LC9S to LCR .38 loaded with Buffalo Bore. Why? For a couple of the very reasons listed here. Switched out the grip to something smaller for concealability. Of course it is backed up by LCP II. Reloads for both.

1) Was the green crud corrosion or mold?

2) Evan, what weight Mobil 1 do you run in your guns?

I'm not Evan, but I did learn the 'Mobil 1' trick from him. When I need more, I get that special weight; it's called 'On Sale'. Ace

I'm also not Evan, but I do want to thank him for acquainting me with Mobil One synthetic oil. The version I use is V Twin 20w50w. According to Mobil it was designed for air-cooled motorcycle engines.

A semi-auto firearm, handgun or rifle, is nothing more than an air cooled reciprocating engine.

It's thick enough to stay where you put it, and a quart bottle is likely a lifetime supply.... you don't need much to get things done. I dole some out into a small oilier bottle and that lasts for months... even shooting 3 or 4 matches a month.

I don't use it for delicate work, like lubing trigger groups, but it works fine for everything else.

There are those who make things happen. There are those who watch things happen. There are those who wonder What The Heck happened! Pick one.

20w50 is what I use on my V-Twin.
