    Despite its aluring aroma, and the phenominal effect that it has on women's libido, it should not be used as cologne, nor as aftershave.

    I should not be questioned as to how I came to be in possession of this information.

    If you soak one of those little tree shaped air freshners in it your car will smell like you've been cleaning guns in the woods. :)

    no, you don't get away with that!

    Inquiring minds want to know:

    HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT HOPPE'S AND COLOGNE???

    Hoppe's potion number 9

    I took my troubles down to Madam Ruth,
    You know the gypsy with the gold-capped tooth.
    She's got a pad down at 34th and vine
    Selling little bottles of Hoppe's Potion Number 9.

    I told her that I couldn't shoot my gun
    It's been this way since nineteen eighty-one
    She looked down the breech and she made a magic sign
    Said what you need is Hoppes Potion Number 9.

    She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
    She said, "We're gonna scrub it out right here in the sink"
    It smelled like turpentine it had a terrible stink
    I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I couldn't think.

    I didn't know what all that black stuff was
    So much was in there it was growing fuzz.
    And when I reached the end and the barrel had a shine
    I'd used up all my bottle of Hoppe's Potion Number 9.

    Hoppe's Potion Number 9.
    Hoppe's Potion Number 9.

    :)

    Hmmm

    How you got to that conclusion, I don't know. However, I will take note. :scrutiny:

    I never liked the smell of Hoppes #9. It like the smell of WD-40 makes me sick to my stomach. Ask me how I know.

    I actually love the smell of Ol Number 9. It brings back memories of shooting as a young boy. I've been using that stuff for years.

    With all this talk about #9, I think I'll go out to the garage and have a sniff.:what: I think I have a problem with this stuff:)

    Try a little G96. A quick shot under each arm and you'll smell quite manly!

    I've always said Hops, but one of the gun store employees called it Hop-eeze the other day.

    Either way, it smells like freedom.

    Let's just say...

    I'm old enough to remember the Little Anthony version of the original.

    Yeah, mid-'50's (both the song and me).

    I'll call, what's the number? :p

    *update*

    I went to www.hoppes.com and it is the Michael's of Oregon site. The contact number on the site is for Bushnell Corporate offices. On the phone menu there is no mention of Hoppes.

    The ladies sure do like it, at least better than the high sulpher cutting oil I use on weekdays.

    A little dab and ..............................


    Oh we have always called it Hopeez and smiled when we did.


    The stuff is an institution:D

    It still stinx big time. Not quite as bad as the #9 copper solvent, but almost. I use the Elite, now. No more stink.

    Except my scores after a long range dry-spell.:D
