I know a couple of people who actually enjoy cleaning guns. Heck, I'll admit there's a certain feeling of accomplishment in taking a pistol that's just filthy and rendering it 100 percent operable and clean. But, really, does anyone look forward to cleaning?

Fortunately, there's Hoppes Gun Medic Quick Fix. For the lazy, hurried or just those looking to get their gun back in working order immediately, this is a great product. The cleaner & lube cleans the action and bore, drying within a minute and leaving a thin film of lubrication behind. With a working temperature range of -65 degrees to +500 degrees Fahrenheit, it's unlikely your surroundings will cause it to fail.

Should your circumstances only require lubrication, it is available separately in a convenient applicator bottle. According to Hoppes, it's the same technology as that used to keep jet engines going, so who are we to argue with, well, rocket scientists? In any case, having a bottle of lubricant on hand is always a good idea.

MSRP: $8.45 for the 2 ounce lube, $7.95 for 4 ounce cleaner & lube and $12.95 for the 10 ounce cleaner & lube.
