I just put 200rds through my S+W yesterday, and I just love the way the bolt smells when locked open!  Is this just me?

If they put that smell in an air freshener I'd buy it.

I've often thought they should make that smell into a cologne.  

Then I realize though that I don't want the kind of attention that scent would attract.

the smell of gun powder takes me back about 25 years. It NEVER goes away.

I think burnt shotgun powder smells the best.

Start with the smell of burnt powder.
Slowly overwhelm it with the smell of Hoppe's #9, as you clean your rifle.
End up with a refreshing splash of BreakFree.

Ah, I love it.

If you ever want to smell the Holy Grail of gun smells buy some Federal Gold Medal Paper shells, and shoot a couple of those......they smell awesome even before being shot, too!

Not just you, Man.  Burnt gunpowder is the smell of freedom.

Ditto, but I like mine mixed with the smell of Hoppes #9

Ain't it strange that the "burnt gunpowder" smell can make one feel happy, satisfied, content?

Thanks for reminding me of something nice, I'm at work today and thinking of things like this makes me happy.

I Love the smell of burnt gunpowder. After I shoot my AR I stick my nose up to the ejection port and take a big snort.

I like all sorts of oily smells... a fired firearm, gasoline, wd-40, etc.

With a pheasant on the ground in front of you thats probably true.
Then again i've never shot a pheasant with an AR so it could be a tie

That smell and some gun oil got this man a wife

You aren't crazy the smell of a fired ar15 and fired 12ga shells are two of the best smells in the world.

Yep...

If you really want to enjoy the smell of an AR, shoot it with a suppressor attached...
