I have a funny gun scrubber story
I was at a friends house one day and we went shooting for a few hours. When we got back he decides to clean his pistol over the kitchen sink "using gun scrubber". He generously sprayed the gun scrubber onto his field stipped gun, and i mean generously. He cleaned the gun and reassembled it. After about 10 minutes we started hearing water gushing from somewhere...and we found the cause.. The gunscrubber had went down the drain and ate all of the "plastic" water pipes.. Needless to say he didnt use gun scrubber again
