    The smell of Hoppes

    One more afternoon deer hunt left, the Mossberg,"English Premier Walnut" stock will go play, no rain in the forecast!!! I kinda treat the XS7 like a "red headed stepchild", as much as I love it, it has a synthetic stock, so it gets the call in rainy weather, never complains, and shoots "lights out", 7MM-08. So it got the take-apart, end of season cleaning, and is back "home", in the gun cabinet. Thanks to the Good Lord, another season in the books, as they say, hope y'all had a good one, and a Happy New Year to all!!! T Rex

    A long time ago, I had a girlfriend that loved the smell of Hoppes #9. I would put some on a rag and punch holes in a baggie and throw it in the SUV.

    Anyone remember the original Hoppes aroma?

    Hoppes No 9 was reformulated about 40 years ago due to concerns over one of the solvents. Not sure what was in it origanally, but it smelled more of cloves. Wonderful. Occasionally I'll still run across an original formula can with some still in it.

    I guess I always thought it smelled like bananas or banana oil back in the day.

    A long, long, time ago I had a lady friend who loved the smell. My wife can't stand it. I couldn't stand the lady friend either. I'll stick with my wife and keep the No. 9 in the garage.
