Hoppe's No. 9 Gun Medic

posted on January 20, 2016

When push comes to shove, there's only one way to keep your firearm in its best shape, and that's by giving it a full, comprehensive cleaning. The thing is, we're not always in a position to do that—and that goes doubly so for hunters, who often take their guns afield, where dirt, dust and foliage can't always be controlled. The folks at Hoppe's—who know a thing or two about keeping guns working—have devised an on-the-go solution that just be what you're looking for: Gun Medic.

Hoppe's is pitching Gun Medic as a do-it-all solution to cleaning and lubricating your firearm on the go. It won't be a comprehensive takedown but if you're away from your shop and your sidearm requires first aid, Gun Medic will be there.
