    Maybe I am a nerd but one of the things I enjoy almost as much as target shooting is cleaning my weapons afterwards. Am I the only one who enjoys the cleaning part?

    2nd part: What does everyone swear by when it comes to gun cleaning. Do you think a cleaner is just a cleaner or do you like to "splurge" on some of the more perceived quality products. I have used your traditional Hoppes but think I have found my groove with Gunzilla seen below.

    There's nothing like the smell of Hoppes 9 in the morning.

    I clean with Hoppes and done a 180 on oil. Been using automotive lythium grease on things that slide and 10w30 on things that rotate.

    I don't love it or hate it.
    Freaking Army got in my blood enough that I still clean after every use
