    Sorry but waiting on the Hoppe's no.9 Cologne, that and some camo shirts would be like an irresistible drug to redneck country ladies.

    My wife has said for years they need to make a Hoppe's #9 cologne and air freshener. :)

    When I had my gunshop she always liked the smell of it as there was always some Hoppe's soaked rags laying around.

    I had some of those. They did smell like Hoppes, just not very strong and did not last very long.

    I tried a little bit one time as a cologne. I went to Walmart and did the walk but all I got was a bunch of old fat guys in camo following me around. *s*

    Knuckle draggers love the smell of H9 when I use it.

    Many years ago we used to do a gift exchange for Christmas. My future sister in law that lives in Sacramento CA drew my name. One of the question was, "What is your favorite fragrance? ". I put down Hoppe's 9. You guessed it. She went to several men's departments looking for cologne.

    We don't do the Christmas exchange anymore. :headscratch:

    I hear it;s good for athlete's foot. Maybe for toenail fungus too.

    I know for a fact that it's a pretty strong antibiotic - but I bet it hurts bad if you use it that way.

    The stuff they make now is for wussies. Need to bring back the original formula.

    Yup, it always reminds me of "helping" my Father clean his guns when I was a kid fifty some years ago. They say that smell brings back the most distant memories.

    Conjures up lots of fond old memories of a gun shop I used to work in in my hometown. Love the smell of Hoppes

    Forget the cologne.

    Just dab a bit of Hoppes Number Nine behind your earlobes.

    'Nuff said.

    the older version had a stronger scent. I still have my first bottle that came with a cleaning kit my Dad got me when I was a kid (40+ yrs ago).
