I use canola oil. I also wipe em down with baby wipes at the range. Baby wipes and a cleaning rod will keep you going all day at the range, till you get home and clean it with soap and water.

I like baby wipes also i buy the small packs at walmart for a dollar. Canola oil is good short term if you leave it on to long it turns sticky and nasty.

You are not supposed to wait long enough between trips to the range, for it to get sticky and nasty

Dellmar is right but if you don't get to the range like you should you will have a mess. I used to put it on my cast iron pans it left a sticky flim that was hard to get off. Now I use store brand cooking spray

The cooking spray work good on my cast iron pans. It does a good job of keeping them seasoned. It might make a good gun lube. The butter favor might have salt in it so i don't think i would use it. I buy GV brand at Walmart for two bucks.

I think I'll use rem oil, too. I just saw it's also available in wipes. I already put some things on my wishlist at Cabela's thanks to you guys.  :)

If I put cooking spray on my guns it will only make me hungry, and I have no problems finding reasons to be hungry as it is  (?^
