    Does anyone do that or use other stuff like barricade WD40 or sheath?

    I have some suede gloves that seem to suck the oil off everything and as a result they are getting oily.

    It would keep barrels oiled esp on SxS guns but could make things slippery as well.

    Thoughts?

    I use Ballistol on all my leather goods. Bags, belts, boots etc. The bi-line is scoring in Cribbage.

    That's what suede does...absorbs everything. Indigenous people on several continents used it to absorb blood from wounds, etc. That's why it makes lousy work gloves. Besides, if the suede is tanned with chromium salts (it usually is) it will rust blued steel if it gets the least bit wet.

    I have some gloves that have leather parts. After I wash them (put them on and wash hands in a weak Woolite solution) and let them dry I rub a little Lexol or other neatsfoot oil into the leather to soften it. Doesn't work with suede 'cause suede doesn't have the skin layer on it.

    A good friend was a gun dealer and traveled the shoots. He wore cloth gloves when putting his guns away at the close of business. He would spray the gloves with an aerosol can of gun oil and would wipe each gun before putting it away. Bill never had rust on his guns.
