and lube thread is not complete without someone mentioning motor oil. I guess you missed the part where he said "non-toxic"?

I use the same. As a matter of fact I use it to clean my firearms also. Stopped using Hoppes #9.

Most gun oils and motor oils come from the same place. They don't have a special well for gun oils. All gun oil is, is cheap motor oil put into little bottles and sold at a jacked up price.

Most of my life I have used Hoppe #9 and Breakfree CLP.

If I could find Ballistol local I would give it a try.

If used correctly any quality cleaner and oil should work.

Being we only use a few drops to begin with I've never seen a big difference, if any, in anything I've ever tried. So I figure If Mobil one is good enough for the Harley it's plenty good enough for the Glock or anyone of my other pistols or rifles. Glad to report all pistols, rifles and shotguns are all running smoothly without any unusual signs of wear. Even my M1 garand and SKS seem to like it.

Rail, slide lugs, etc. Mil-Comm TW25b or lubriplate. Finish protection G96 for long term storage, or a silicone cloth for short term & carry.

Up until recently, it was Hoppe's for cleaning and lube. Since I bought some Ballistol off eBay, it is all I will use from now on.

I use 50% Mobile 1 with 50% ATF (give or take). For rails I use wheel bearing grease. If you want non toxic try Slip 2000 EWL or liquid Froglube.

Depends.

Over the years I've tried & used a variety of lubricant products made for firearms.

I've been through more than 20 armorer classes, and the recommendations for lubrication usually run toward using any of the modern products made for use on firearms.

The Sig instructor did put a little more emphasis on the Mil-Comm TW25b grease, because Sig has been satisfied with it and at that time was shipping their guns lathered in it. (Too much)

What I use at any particular time depends on whether I'm at my bench (and which lubricant or grease I decide to use), have my armorer kit(s) with me away from my bench, or I'm at the range armorer bench or cleaning station.

I'm not terribly fussy as long as it's one of the better quality lubricants made for firearms, although sometimes my choice might be predicated upon the conditions and circumstances in which a particular firearm may be carried (and for how long under those conditions). Things like potential wicking, gravity runoff, evaporation, temperature & humidity changes, the potential for fine grit/debris, etc.

If I'm running one or another gun for extended, hard training/practice I may pick a grease over an oil, or vice versa ... or use a slurry of both (1911's ,).

I've seen some slight increase in cycling ease on some platforms with one or another of the more expensive synthetics ... but I'm not running full auto weapons anymore, so it's not one of my big concerns.

If I'm concerned about corrosion/oxidation instead of functioning? That may change things, especially for long duration storage.

Just depends.

I don't see an whole lot of mechanics dropping dead all the time so I think I'm good to go. Plus it seems to stay where I put it longer than some of the gun oils I've tried.

There are more old mechanics than old doctors.

Used to use Hoppe's or Remoil. Converted to Ballistol a couple of years ago and never looked back. I can't find it locally, so I order some online whenever I'm ordering something else from one of the big ammo/accessory houses. I've also gotten it on Amazon and EBay.

I though that would be post #2.

I use the Ballistol as well. After a few cleanings you get a long term coating that makes cleaning easier.
