    I'll keep this short and sweet. I got my frog lube a few months ago. I went to the range about 3 days ago and put a few hundred rounds through the gun. I shot cci blazer, Hornady 155 gn xtp and underwood 135 gn noslers. I got around to cleaning the gun today. I ran two cleaning patches through the barrel then the brush that glock supplies. There was almost nothing on the brush. The point is this product works....period. Clean up could not be easier. Dirt, carbon, etc simply wipe off. The gun was flawless as always.

    I agree. It has made my Glock barrels INSANELY easy to clean. All I have to do is run the Glock brush through a few times, then run a patch through it, and it looks new. And there's no more copper fouling. Some guy in General Glocking said it reduced and/or eliminated leading in his barrels. I don't shoot lead, so I don't know. I love the stuff. I especially love that it's non-toxic and doesn't stink. I didn't think that I cared about that stuff until I started using it. Now that I don't have to deal with the smell of the other stuff, I really like that about it. It has worked great on all three Glocks and the Delta Elite for a few months now. I don't see myself changing anytime soon. Oh yeah, it also worked wonders on my reloading press.

    Ya know, I'm not even sure how you guys are catching these frogs???:dunno: Earlier this fall, I'm chasing grass frogs around the yard, diving at these things, grabbing and trying to hold on. They are definately slippery. I ended up catching a couple...but wasn't sure exactly where the lube comes from? Sooo, I ended up just kind of wringing them out kind of like a wet rag over the broken down parts of my gun.

    I gotta tell ya. I'm not too impressed.

































    What? What?
    Happy New Year.:supergrin:

    I agree, wringing them out was a good idea.

    Works for me too. Very easy clean up even after a heavy shooting day at the range.

    Dang, they gotta pee on the gun? Wringing them out kind a leaves them in bad shape so maybe your right. If you force feed them some Budweiser maybe they'll pee faster?

    Edit to say, isn't it a lot easier just using something like WD40? Or is this frog pee that much better?

    I find the chemical properties of the oil in the frog's hair work the magic. Seems to work well just rubbing the gun parts on the frog. Though when it comes to the inside of the barrel I simply push a small tree frog through with a brass jag. And before the PETA folks get excited, YES, I first file off the spike at the forward end of the brass jag. Leaves the frogs happy, the gun happy, and me happy. What's not to like?:dunno:

    It works either way. If you wring them out, they are only good for one use (unless the excess is promptly mixed with unicorn tears, whipped with a walrus's ***** bone, then refrigerated to -11*F). This is how Frog Lube extracts the paste form. For the liquid form, the most efficient method is to insert a catheter (it's tough locating a frog's pecker). From there, you can collect the urine. A steady diet of Budweiser helps, but can dilute the extract.

    For real, though, the stuff works well. I just hate all the salesmen that over-hype the product. They make it sound like genuine snake oil.

    Bought a kit (paste and oil) from Amazon. Looking forward to trying it out soon. Any tricks to putting it on the first time. Heard you need to heat the gun, but not sure how a blow dryer will get the metal hot enough to matter. Any suggestion? Got a few guns I want to apply it on. All reports have it sounding like the bee's knees.

    Aside from its ability to make clean-up easier, have you all noticed how well it lubricates? Or is it not a lubricant?

    I'm interested in trying it but I don't know much about it. I'm hesitant because it is quite expensive.

    Egg Zactly. It's easier to believe my story about frog pee and bee's knees than lube creeping into the pores of the steel.:rofl:

    :thumbsup:

    We have to give 21Carrier some credit too. If I'm not mistaken he did the video.

    BTW, I do not use Frog's Poob. I may at some point, but for now am extremely happy with M-Pro 7 cleaner and oil and have been for years (same as the newer labeled stuff under Hoppe's Elite).

    The main thing that leaves me thinking twice about the Frog Lube is it is two separate products (oil and goop) and both do the same thing for different applications in the same application of a single cleaning process per gun. Now how much sense does that make over what I use currently that also makes consecutive cleanings much much easier over most other conventional products?:supergrin:
