Gun Oil Not Meant For Your Firearm!

At first, reading the story carried over at The Blaze, I thought we had yet another FireClean firestorm, but nope, a little bit of detailed reading and the H20 based “Gun Oil” is not actually meant for your firearm. its meant for your… member.

Hilariously mistaken for an actual firearm lubricant, Jamie Lee Bracey found the offending product at a Walmart (of course…) in Florence, Alabama. Nearly purchasing it, he was fortunate to read the label.


So, to avoid any performance issues with your firearm, avoid using “Gun Oil” on your gun.

    My wife supplies whatever gun oil I need. 😉

    • iksnilol

      Doesn’t that mean she isn’t sufficently…?

      Why are even discussing sex on a firearm blog? Like, can’t we go back to discussing Enfield Musketoon front sights?

      • Kjk

        I think he was implying her wetness is enough

        • iksnilol

          My bad, I read it literally. I’ll just use the “English is my 3rd language” excuse.

      • Tassiebush

        No quite the contrary it’s a positive feedback loop!

  • SP mclaughlin

    Wrong kind of waifu

    This reminds me of the time i got garand thumb not on my thumb.

    • John Shore

      No. Just, no.

  • USMC03Vet

    Unload and show clear has a whole new meaning now.

    • My Co-Workers and I just gave you a slow clap for that one.

      • John Shore

        Is slow clap better, or worse, than the regular kind?

        • anomad101

          Just be thankful it is only the clap.

    • Don Ward

      What Philly said. USMC just won the Internet today.

    • Riot

      You’re on a roll lately

    LubeGate 2016. KY Jelly is just peanut oil. MattV2099 does a blind taste test comparison.

    • Yimmy

      How does it compare to Cristo though?

  • flyingburgers

    The stuff does have the consistency of gun oil. They claim the idea came from Desert Storm…

    As long as you remember which is fighting and which is for fun.

    Maybe the ginseng increases firepower and magazine capacity?

  • imachinegunstuff

    Hmm, doesn’t use canola, 1/10 would not operate with

  • Edeco

    Looks like would reduce wear on the holster, so to speak.

  • Don Ward

    Glad to see some stuff is still made in the Good Old USA.

    Only one question: “does it work?”

    • CrankyFool

      True story: It really does. It’s my favorite lubricant — I’ve been buying it by the 64oz size (much more economical). Fantastic stuff.

      • Cymond

        I haven’t tried Gun Oil, but Swiss Navy is also good stuff. I’m not sure if the Mrs would appreciate the ‘Gun Oil’ labeling.

      • anomad101

        Either you are lying or I am way behind.

  • Major Tom

    Lubing your gun has never been so easy!

  • smartacus

    you know someone can sue them McDonald’s coffee style
    because it doesn’t say on the label “caution, not for guns”

    • smartacus

      maybe BreakFree should market a lube for hymeno-americans
      made of 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil

      • John Shore

        I see what you did, there. and for M@sl!ms, one could market it as made of 72% Extra Virgin. . .

    • iksnilol

      That hot coffee suit was logical. If you read the case you’d know that Mickey had the coffee way too hot, as in iresponsibly hot.

      • smartacus

        if you saw it on TV, you’d know that the McD’s failed to tell her hot coffee may be hot.
        Mc’D. also negligently failed to install cupholders in the FORD at the factory.

        • iksnilol

          Point is, regular coffee is at about 70-85 degrees celsius. The McD’s coffee was 90+ degrees celsius. For chrissakes, it caused 3rd degree burns. I’ve spilled coffee and tea and like many others in the same situation I didn’t burn off my genitals.

          • smartacus

            No; the point is, they had to write on the cup “caution hot”

            They never changed the temperature because of Mrs. Liebeck’s lawsuit.
            Even in Sep. 1997; another 73 year old woman got 2nd Degree burns by spilling a cup of McDonalds coffee on her lap and they were still at 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

            **and i’ll have to take your word that you didn’t burn off your genitals
            i don’t wanna know 🙂

          • iksnilol

            I know, it’s pretty stupid. I think they’d save money on the lawsuits by going with normal temp coffee.

            Also, I won’t send pictures to prove the non-burnt state of my genitals xD

          • MR

            “What do you mean there’s no ice? You mean I got to drink this coffee hot?!!??”

  • Southpaw89

    I just use canola oil

  • Jimmy

    What are the chances it’s probably just as effective as Fireclean?

    • John Shore

      I will buy you both products, if you test them for us. No videos will be accepted as proof unless you wear a full-body burkah and your partner is cute, female and ‘en dishabille.’
      Oh, you mean on GUNS. Who cares about THAT?

  • Dale Dimick

    I worked part time at a gun shop in Charlotte NC several years ago and bought 5 bottles of gun oil at a sex shop and put price tags on them and put them on the shelf with the other gun cleaning stuff. We sold 3 bottles before anyone asked where we got them from.

  • earthtone55

    The real question is, can you use CLP for “intimate” purposes?

    • Tassiebush

      There’s a local legend about WD40… The story goes that a fellow discovered he probably wasn’t her exclusive companion that night after he noticed the very out of context scent of WD40

      • Chase Buchanan

        That would be the most painful sex ever. WD-40 is for getting rid of moisture!

        • Tassiebush

          Yeah it’s pretty darn sub optimal!

        • anomad101

          Now you tell me.

  • John Shore

    Two questions: Does Larry approve it for operational use, and can you cook an egg in it? I’m looking for an all ’round personal lube/gun lube/cooking oil/decay-preventative dentifrice (approved by the ADA) to carry with me at all times. It must also be good for warts and shining shoes, harmless to latex, biodegradable, Environmentally friendly, and have a pleasant aftertaste.
    This MAY be just the ticket!

  • Graham2

    I just hope nobody puts up a Youtube video showing how to apply it!

  • Shawn

    heh reminds me of this…
