I've never had any problems using Lock-Ease.

Quig

I've heard of Lock-Ease being used in the barrel. Are you applying it on the inner parts too after cleaning?

Prior to this thread of 'new advice', I was always using Birchwood-Casey 2 In 1 Bore Scrubber -then Ballistol for the inner parts and Breakfree Collector for barrel rust-inhibitor.

Are you using the aerosol can? Or the dripper bottle - then spread it with a patch, cotton swab or toothbrush?

Never spray your gun down with an aerosol spray, spray it in cloth and wipe down sparingly. You have the idea that a gun has to be saturated with lubricant, that could not be further from the truth. The east amount of lubricant is better than a lot of lubricant.

You can't say you are going to do something with a gun, that huge percentage of people think is unsafe and then say let's end it right here. That's not how these forums work. Here's a link for you. Lot's more info out there. Google is your friend. Good luck in whatever you decide.

OMG! Stop it already. My crowd that's declared we're safe, is all that matters. Youtube gun analyst Jeff from Gunblasts.com is in my crowd. He's been wearing his LCP unholstered in his front pocket for at least three years now.

Go ahead and tell him he's wrong too. I'm done with this. Anyone who replies on this alternative subject will just be scrolled over by me. Stick to the topic please.

Thanks to everyone that posted on-topic. I ended-up sticking with synthetics and getting Slip 2000EWL Oil and Tetra Gun Grease.

Taurus Millenium PT111 G2 (9mm)
(pending) Ruger LCP .380 (out of stock at all the big box stores)
