Ballistol Lubricant Learns Foreign Languages


    The German product Ballistol is popular with shooters the world over as an effective cleaning, lubricating, and protecting agent. Now, its aerosol cans are available in many different languages. I saw the display at IWA and had to take a few photos.


    Because I am male, I rarely read directions, so it does not matter to me if the text on a can of gun oil is something I can read. However, I think this is a neat idea, and I will probably buy a few cans in my favorite languages. This way, I might not be able to tell a Romanian girl that she is pretty, but I will be able to tell her what to do if she sprays Ballistol in her eye.
