Anyone else addicted to this stuff? I'm watching T.V.,eating Beer Brats and having a cold HARP while cleaning a pistol using Hoppes 9 solvent. It just occured to me that I've been using this stuff since 1965 and I love the smell of it. Am I a freak or what?[:\]

I became addicted in '68. I use other products for specific chores, but I always have a bottle of #9 on the shelf. Eddie

I'm not sure I'd want to be eating anything while using any solvent. Especially when cleaning something that more than likely is contaminated with lead residue. Clean the weapon Clean your hands Then eat. (BTW, I love the smell of Hoppe's!)

Geeze KBaker I wasn't using the Hoppes as an ajus dipping sauce for the brats![BD] I ate them first! Then cleaned the gun while drinking the beer![:D] There is just something about that smell thats intoxicating.(and no I don't huff it either!)

Me and the Mrs clean guns together, she uses Chanel No. 5, and I use Hoppes No. 9. Talk about intoxicating. [:D]

True story..After a holdup or someting the cops were looking for the suspect. One cop caught a whiff of Hoppes on a suspect (At least he keeps his gun clean). He was patted down, he was carrying, and turned out to be the suspect. The defense attorney was trying to supress the PC, he asked how the cop knew the def was carrying. The cop stated "nothing smells like Hoppes #9." True story.....

I love the stuff, have used it for 37 years and rarely use anything else to this day. I buy it in the big bottles and transfer it to smaller plastic squeeze dispensers. Unfortunately my wife seems reluctant to put a dab where she normally applies perfumes........... I have some of the more modern ammonia based solvents that are probably faster for removing copper, but still prefer using #9. So what if it takes a little longer....... the smell ranks up there with pretty women, new cars, and fresh baked bread.

Never known a man who didn't love the smell of #9. Never met a woman who could stand it. Must be something in the hormonal differences.

My mother hates it, my wife hates it, but whenever my dad comes by the house and catches a whiff, he says, "I love that smell! It brings back memories from my childhood." And he was born in 1924. New motto: "Hoppe's #9 -- we bring continuity to your life."

A few years back I was cleaning a gun in the living room and spilled a bottle of hops on the carpet. It soaked the carpet and the pad underneath it. The whole apartment smelt like Hoppes for a couple months. I thought it was great but my girlfriend refused to spend any time there. [:)]

I spilled maybe a teaspoon of Hoppe's on an oak veneer folding table, and the table smelled like Hoppe's for a week! That stuff will soak into glass, I tell ya.

I'm another one who loves the smell of Hoppes, however my wife can't stand it. She makes me clean my guns in the garage. She thinks its fine though when she sits in the house while she does all that nail polish crap!! She ain't too bad though. I took her shooting one time and she fell in love...with my brand new Knights SR15 M4. Now it kinda belongs to "both of us".
