There's no use crying over spilt CLP.

    I feel really dumb.

    Last night I was getting ready to head into work. I sat down on the edge of my bed to change my shoes. About halfway into putting on my second shoe, I heard this odd noise... like static.

    So I looked down at my clock radio. Nope, not it...

    I looked for probably 2 minutes before I saw it -- directly under my bedframe was my large can of CLP. When I sat down on the bed, the frame flexed ever-so-slightly, lightly pressing down the nozzle.

    There was a puddle about 14 inches long and 6 inches wide on my floor... It's concrete in that area though, so I guess this is one of those small blessings.

    Still feel dumb, though. :rolleyes:

    Umm, not sure I want the answer to this, but why do you have a lubricant near your bed????? :):):):)

    I'd be careful; that stuff leaves stains. I have CLP stains on my bed (no where else to put my guns when they're laid out)

    A gun lubricant near my bed, you mean... the answer to that is because I keep a gun under my pillow, and because I do a nightly "rust rubdown."

    Luckily, the puddle is under my bed, where the floor is concrete. I don't think I need to worry about that staining. As for the one under my pillow, I keep it in a holster, and haven't noticed stains yet. Thanks for the warning, though. It's something to be aware of.

    More good cautionary "bedroom" storage advice:

    If you keep a tube of "lubricant" in the nightstand, do NOT store a tube of superglue there as well.

    It was dark. Mistakes were made...

    At least the floor won't rust now.

    Somehow the lid on the small container of Hoppes I keep in my range bag became loose enough to leak a couple mL all over my gear. Luckily it didnt eat my Peltors or range pass, but my glasses case has a funny green & white mark on it now. :(

    Thank you very much. After the day I had, I really needed that laugh.

    Close... basement. The sections of floor where I walk have rugs on them, but under the bed and furniture is still just plain concrete.

    It isn't pretty, but it's easy to clean up CLP spills. :rolleyes: :banghead:

    Gah, I just spilled AN ENTIRE BOTTLE of Hoppe's all over the place a few days ago when cleaning my guns. Room stank uncontrollably, it was terrible. I don't mind a little for flavor, but an entire bottle is too much, plus it's an expensive waste.
