I am a new gun owner who is taking delivery of my SR9c tomorrow. Plan to clean it with FrogLube before using it on the range. I look forward to trying it out. Thanks to everyone on their comments on this product.

After reading mostly what amounted to users' own experiences with Frog Lube, I ponied up and ordered some.

My only complaint is with their shipping charges. $5.40 for Priority Mail, and $8.00 more for sticking two bottles in an envelope and taping it shut? C'mon.

Bad enough gun shops and just about every other firearm related retail business are profiting on current trends and shortages, but does everybody have to do it?

I sell all the time on ebay, and on this forum, and handling and shipping comes with the territory, but I can honestly say I have NEVER gouged a customer for handling nor have I profited from charging excessive shipping like the makers of Frog Lube have.

By the going rate of everything else that fits on or in or around a gun, my next set of Elk grips ought to sell for about $475.00 + 26.50 shipping.

Enough is enough.

Found some Frog Lube at an LGS around where I live after a range visit. It seems like some good stuff and the minty smell is almost addicting. Love it.

Amazon has it as a Prime product, so 2 day shipping is free.

Frog Lube takes paypal, and I think this is how they shuffle off their paypal fees to the customer, which is against paypal's policies, and a downright ripoff to their customers.

If you sell online, you will incur costs to send and receive money, it comes with the territory, all of us have to absorb the costs, it's the price of doing business.

Personally, I would be ashamed to do business like that. Ok /rant mode now, but..

Should have googled and maybe it would have come up on Amazon..

All internet companies have to absorb the fees from us using Visa & MC besides those of PayPal. Shipping fees are easy to calculate and add on. Handling fees is where they absorb the card fees. The dealers have to do that in order to stay in business. Most dealers run with a 3-5% profit. If you subtract the card fees they won't make a profit and go out of business.

Well, I just frog lubed my Sig 239. We'll see how it goes. The stuff smells like the bore butter I use on my flintlock. Hmmm, I wonder?

It is without a doubt. If I were frog lube, I would post a link to this thread in their testimonials.

They did that a long time ago.

And to several other gun forums, too.

I finally got around to applying FL to my 1st weapon. Waiting an hour and wiping off. Will shoot this weekend and repeat. So far, so good.

Congrats! I always give a new gun the full heat/wait treatment the first couple of times. After that, I still heat the parts but only wait about 5 minutes or so.

You're going to love how easy your gun is to clean with the next cleanings. Most gunk wipes right off.
