    How long have you used Hoppe's?

    When did you start using Hoppe's products?

    While waiting for church to begin this morning, I was watching "Murder by Contract" ("1958"). The hit man walked in to a gun store in Los Angeles and was perusing the aisles. On one shelf behind him were several boxes with Hoppe's products in them. While I've never used them myself, I'm certainly familiar with the name. It was a surprise to see a familiar name on the shelves (not to mention how easily it was for him to purchase a gun).

    It certainly was a good movie and I'd recommend it. You'll likely recognize some of the actors.

    30 years now.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    I have only owned guns and been shooing for about 9 years now and I started with Hoppe's at the beginning.

    Since I was old enough to date. I thought it was a very manly smell. On guns since I was 11, and I am 72 now!

    I don't know how long. Always? A few decades.

    I can't imagine that someone hasn't used Hoppes.

    I don't use Hoppes 9. I'm allergic to something in it. It makes me very sick within minutes of smelling it.
