    I started shooting and hunting in 1959 so that was the first year I used Hoppe's No. 9 and I've been using it ever since.

    Bought my first can 57+ years ago but I've since move over to Ballistol.

    It is possible to love my country and my guns but despise Donald Trump.

    Somewhere between 30 and 40 years. Don’t really know exactly.

    I'm only 65, so not as long as some of the others on this site, 40-50 years I guess.

    prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence
    than an armed man.”

    I'm thinking it must have been around 1968. But I gave it up in 2016 in favor of something non-toxic.

    Back in the late 1950's and early 60's when I was a kid, my Dad would take me deer hunting every year in Northern Michigan. I was 'allowed' to wipe down and clean his rifle under his supervision every evening when we were back in the tent or cabin. I thought it was pretty cool that he would let me to even touch his rifle but it wasn't until I was older that I realized he was teaching me how to clean and care for a firearm. In retrospect, it was kind of a Karate Kid 'Wax on/Wax off' situation. A valuable lesson and great memories that have stayed with me my entire life. He always had bottles of Hoppe's in his cleaning kit and I have always had it in mine since then, too. I use other products as well, but the scent of Hoppe's always brings back great memories of going deer hunting with my Dad before I was old enough to hunt.

    Right before he passed away, my Dad wanted me to have his deer rifle (bolt-action 30-06) that he had bought in the late 1940's or early 50's but I am extremely left-eye dominant so I shoot long guns left-handed which makes cycling a right-handed bolt action a bit difficult, especially since I would have to reach the bolt over the scope by tilting the rifle. Although I have always loved that rifle, I suggested that he give it to his grandson (my son) who was 26 at the time. To this day, it is still one of my son's most prized possessions.
