    I used the CLP on my Glocks since 2005 until I discover the Seal 1 CLP plus.
    Break Free CLP will dry from my Glock's Seal 1 does not specially the paste stuff!

    I use breakfree liquid for lube. I clean with home brewed "Eds Red."

    I use Lucas grease on my yard work tools, because I like them to smell like grapes. For gun lubrication, I use a light oil derived from the thighs of virgin nymphs.

    Break Free CLP was what I used on all the Academy training guns, and it worked just fine.

    Having said that, I have quite a collection of various gun lubes and they all basically work the same.

    I've come to the conclusion it doesn't matter what you use. You shoot it, you clean it. The oil will easily last until the next use, no worries.

    Yeah i`m not a fan of ballistol at all either. I`m kind of fond of the G96 myself. Personally i think the G96 works better than ballistol, for me. The G96 smells better than most all the others out there for sure. Even my wife likes it....lol. Pretty sure you`ll like it Chris.

    I used it in the Army. Glock used it when I went to armorer's school.
    I like it. I also use Mobil One and Hornady One Shot.

    I/ve used Breakfree CLP for many years, also use Hoppes 9 for bores. Tetra grease on sone slide rails and hinge pins on my shotguns. Had to get something special for a DW Gun I bought. Solvents take the paint off the slide.

    Another vote for Ballistol.... and Mobil-1 as a lube.

    Ed's Red for cleaning and general wiping down. Mobil 1 in a syringe for lube.

    I think CLP is one of the better combination Cleaner, Preservative, Lubricants on the market and it smells good, but it's NOT the best cleaner, and it's NOT the best Preservative, and it's NOT the best Lubricant.

    My wife uses BreakFree CLP exclusively on her revolvers. I use Hornady One Shot to clean my semi-automatics, because it cleans well and leaves a nice protective film, but doesn't gunk anything up. It can get into the firing pin channel and places like that without causing any problems. However, after I'm done cleaning, I use BreakFree to lube the slide rails, barrel, and the areas where the barrel contacts the slide.

    Slip2000 EWL and then Slip2000 725 when you need to actually clean. This combo can keep a bore nearly completely clean if you use 725 cleaner after each range trip, no need for "copper cutters" or "carbon killers".

    Slip2000 EWL is also available in 30 weight if you like a thicker lube, I use a little 30 weight on the rails it stays in place when you carry every day muzzle down.

    I agree Borg. I mentioned in my post in this thread that I had been using it since the 80's but I now use Lucas and FP10. Lubricants have come a long way since then. It is easy to see how much slicker these are than Breakfree.

    I would not follow the lubrication advice of a man whose nymphs are still virgins. You are doing it wrong brother.
