    Opinions as a gun cleaner, bore cleaner, lube and protector.

    I saw a guy at the Delaware State shoot using it and he swears by it for its effectiveness of the above. He also said it is non-toxic.

    Smells like licorace and it is thick.

    He just poured it on a rag and wiped off all the crap on his tricked out, banana barreled 1100.

    Looked easy, quick, and safe.

    Anyone else use it and can offer opinions pro/con?

    It is thin not thick. And is good for about everything from guns to leather. All you never wanted to know about Ballistol.

    All kidding aside It is all I have ever used and the gun oil of Heckler and Kotch.

    It's the best. Spray on paper towel and wipe your gun down including the wood. I sell about 20 to 30 cans every 60 days.

    Looks to me like it is Ballistol or Eezox. I sure do like that Ballistol is supposed to be good for thinks like wood and leather. Check out these two sites. Interesting tests.

    Check out the website.

    I use Ballistol exclusively for all my guns. It does not hurt the finish on high grade stocks, cuts plastic. Removes surface rust like crazy. Protects fine finishes against hands that rust everything they touch.

    What's not to love about it?
