So i am standing in line at the grocery store, and the woman in front of me turns around and says, "Is that a gun on your belt or are you just happy to see me?"

I answered with the standard, "What makes you say that?" and she replied, "you smell like Hoppe's number 9."

I winked and she left, so i guess she wasn't flirting. The point is the post is to point out that a recently cleaned gun is not very concealable.

Only to people who know what Hoppe's is, and I doubt they are going to rat you out or be the trouble makers you need to look out for.

Just how many women do you think even know what Hoppe's smells like?

You should have gotten her phone number (or at least tried to set up a meeting).

You might want to have your testosterone levels checked.

"Is that a gun on your belt or are you just happy to see me?"

"My gun is happy to see you, and I don't mean the one that's covered in Hoppe's..."

...and yes, I am very surprised I don't get slapped more often :evil:

She cheats though, she's a ranchers daughter. Grew up around the stuff.

If you had a Smart Carry, you could have told her you had two guns. Next time, switch to Breakfree CLP.

I was taking the Sheps
http://www.smugmug.com/photos/213038234-S.jpg
for their nightly walk last week. The still air a block up the street was fouled by someone smoking an el Goat Ropeo Grande cigar. Another block North, and I easily detected the sweet smell of Hoppe's No. 9. It was pungent enough that I could be certain of what garage it was coming from. And I normally can't smell my upper lip.

Many of us like to run in stealth mode where guns are concerned; for security reasons, if nothing else. In the future, I'm not going to break out the Hoppe's on a windless night.

Next time put on a little Hoppe's Bench Rest Copper solvent instead. Much stronger and much better results...

Sounds like a plan. :cool:

That was my first thought, 'did you get her number?' and then assumed, and as a later post revealed, the OP was married already....but that was my first thought...

Funny story.

I only have one gun to clean right now, the daily carry, hd, sd, idpa, all around Glock 19. At some point I'll set up a place in the garage to do it, but for now, it's easier to do it at the kitchen table. The hoppes #9 was a little much, although an open window and hood vent cleared it out quick enough, my bro-in-law turned me on the hoppes elite, but when I couldn't find that in a local store, I ended up w/ a gunslick equivalent, pump spray, virtually no smell, cleans well enough for handgun use, unless you're doing a million round w/ no cleaning torture test or something, if you let it soak in the barrel for a minute while starting on other parts, it's fine.

Of course, that won't result in women calling you out in the line at the store, but since you're married anyway...
