    Ran into Gander Mtn. today because it is close to the apt I'm staying in to check out what they have. Wasn't too great of a gun selection unless you're into hunting rifles and shotguns though.

    But, I had to get some cleaning stuff because I did not bring any of my solvent/oil along.

    I grabbed some of this Rem DriLub though in an Aresol can. WTF is this shit?! I cleaned my gun and sprayed little where I'd normally put oil and it dried white? What is this crap used for? :dunno:

    Never heard of this stuff before, its supposed to be a lubricant? I've used crap like that before on my motorcycle chain (lube goes on dries different color) never seen it on gun stuff though, works ok on chains :dunno:

    Yeah, it says on the front it's a lubricant but it's not a wet lubricant at all... It dries into a white powder type stuff but it sticks to the surface.

    Here are a couple links:

    It's a dry teflon lubricant that's meant for moving parts, it doesn't gum up in cold like some wet lubricants and it doesn't attract dirt or dust. It's not meant to be a cleaner or rust preventer, just a lubricant.

    I used pretty much the same stuff when I used to race sailboats. Not really sure what use that would have on a firearm.. :dunno:

    It's a LUBRICANT. What the fuck else would you use a LUBRICANT for? LUBRICATION.

    That's what I'm wondering... Why do they have this stuff when you could just use oil? :dunno:

    This doesn't attact dust/powder and cause it to gum up the gun...

    Never really had a problem with my gun gumming up even after not cleaning it for several range visits... :dunno:

    And most of us don't seem to operate in cold enough temperatures that would cause oil to gum up either.

    Anyway, Not sure what I'm doing tonight. If I don't get incontact with a friend about going out tonight downtown, then I'll give you a call about the range. I still got your number.
