    The little guy looks so happy hanging out with mom!

      He really does, doesn’t he.

      And Mom seems to have that “Why me?” look that all mothers seem to get on occasion.

    For you shooty people looking for the best lube…As you know, I tout Slipstream and Slipstream Styx (both the oils and the grease) as the BEST – only, in fact – lube to use on your weapons.
    This link is to an entire thread at WeTheArmed devoted to USERS’ experience with Slipstream products. It’s not edited to keep just the good reviews; but has ALL the experiences people have had with the products.
    Go…read about their experiences…then order some for yourself.

    (I live in an area that is typicallyhumid all year round; and gets up to 95%+ relative humidity for long stretches in the Summer, so I use the Slipstream Styx. That is made with some kind of “super metal protecting” oil as the carrier with the nano-particles as the lube. IT WORKS!)


    • solaratov says:

      BTW: I don’t get a commission or anything from Crusader for touting Slipstream.

      I just want all of you to have and use the very best that you can get for your life-savers.

        Hey Sol, have you tried the Slipstream grease? I’m still using Gunslick graphite lube on high wear areas. I’m not concerned about dirt sticking to the grease right now since I clean them up same day I use them.

        • solaratov says:

          Use the Slipstream grease on places like rails and channels. Anyplace you have relatively large areas of metal-to-metal contact (and lots of friction). Put it on with a Q-Tip (not in huge gobs, of course) and let it work in.

          In the thread, people say that they use both the grease and oil, because the oil helps the grease spread better. I’m going to have to try that.
          There are also a couple of items elsewhere on WTA about cleanup…and the consensus seems to: Don’t get all fanatical about it. Wipe it down…light coat of your favorite gun oil on the outside for rust prevention…bore snake down the tube = good to go.

          I believe that you’ll find that the results justify the little bit of extra expense involved. (if that’s a factor)

          The main thing that you’re doing with both the grease and the oil is getting the nano-particles in place so that they ‘bond’ with the metal to provide an almost “permanent lube” situation. And there is a place for both in your lube regimen.

    In Case You Didn’t Know
    The “Harley Owners Group”, the biggest motorcycle club in America , maybe even the world, hasn’t found any members that have Progressive Insurance since the word got out about Progressive’s communist affiliations.
    Just being associated with George Soros should send chills down your spine.
    Oh, you don’t know who George Soros is?
    He finances the Obama progressive affiliations.
    Progressive Insurance….Who are they?
    You’ve seen and probably smiled at the clever Progressive Insurance TV commercials.Well, as Paul Harvey would say, “You’re about to learn the rest of the story”.

    You know their TV commercials, the ones featuring the ditsy actress all dressed in white.What you might not know is that the Chairman of Progressive is Peter Lewis, one of the major funders of leftist causes in America

    Between 2001 and 2003, Lewis funneled $15 million to the ACLU, the group most responsible for destroying what’s left of America’s Judeo-Christian heritage.
    Lewis also gave $12.5 million to and America Coming Together, two key propaganda arms of the socialist left.
    His funding for these groups was conditional on matching contributions from George Soros, the America-hating socialist who is the chief financier of the Obama political machine.

    Lewis made a fortune as a result of capitalism, but now finances a progressive movement that threatens to destroy the American free enterprise system that is targeting television shows on Fox News.Peter Lewis is making a fortune off of conservative Americans (who buy his auto insurance) that he then applies to dismantle the very system that made him wealthy. He’s banking on no one finding out who he is, so STOP buying Progressive Insurance and pass this information on to all your friends.
    Chairman Lewis’ gift helps the ACLU promote their anti-Christmas agenda such as:
    -Removing nativity scenes from public property
    -Banning songs such as Silent Night from schools
    -Refusing to allow students to write about the Christian aspect of Christmas In school projects
    -Renaming Christmas break Winter break
    -Refusing to allow a city-sponsored Christmas parade to be called a Christmas parade
    -Not allowing a Christmas tree in a public school
    -Renaming a Christmastree displayed on public property a Holiday tree In addition to their war on Christmas, the ACLU uses gifts like that from Chairman Lewis to:
    -Sue states to force them to legalize homosexual marriage
    -Force libraries to remove porn filters from their computers
    -Sue the Boy Scouts to force them to accept homosexuals as scout leaders
    -Help legalize child pornography
    -Legalize live sex acts in bars in Oregon
    -Protect the North American Man Boy Love Association Whose motto is “sex by eight or it is too late”
    -Censor student led prayer at graduation
    -Remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance
    -Remove “In God We Trust” from our currency

    All of a sudden…I don’t care for their “funny commercials”.

    • True. With a name like “Progressive” you’d think it would be obvious, but they keep a pretty low profile about it. I’ve never been a fan of PAI or the Lewises. And have you seen their ads about the plug-in tracker that they give you a discount to use? They make it sound like such a fun idea to put a tracking device in your car that gives your insurance company real time data about you every minute of every day – how fast you’re driving, where you go, data about your car. Big Brother much?

      • solaratov says:

        As I understand it, the Lewises also own Fiji water; which used to be what I’d get if I needed a couple of bottles to carry along. IMO, it’s the best bottled water out there…but I’m not going to give money – knowingly – to communists/progressives.

        I have a feeling that we are going to start hearing more about these businesses that are owned by progressive liberals that do not keep to real American ideals.
