Peppermint is a calming aromatherapy oil.

Might help when reshooting classifiers.

Adjusting formula to 20 drops.

I dunno. I always used to like smelling my mustache back in the day when I had one.

I think this is the best for me.

They stay in liquid form for long term storage. Pro-grip go solid after long term storage.

OK, by popular demand, GuanoGoo (version 1.0):

Chalk aka Magnesium Carbonate, cheapest on Amazon in 2 oz block form. 2 oz is less that $5 and makes quite a bit, but I got 8 x 2 ounce blocks for a little more. currently less that $10 on Amazon Prime: http://www.amazon.co...rds=chalk block

Isopropyl / Isopropanol Alcohol, 99% - Dries fast and makes an excellent gun cleaner for carbon, oils/grease, etc. I bought a gallon from Amazon a while back, should last a very long time. Lower % ratios (91%, 70%) will take longer to dry. I wouldn't consider 70%. Link: http://www.amazon.co...pyl alcohol 99%, cheaper in quantity like usual.

Alone these two components in a 2:1 or 3:2 chalk:alcohol ratio will give a workable milky slurry but it is too thin to use easily, plus isopropyl alcohol stinky.

Thickener: Water-based thickeners like starches won't work. You don't want to add too much water in any form or it won't dry as fast as I like. We had some Aloe Vera hand gel around. If you have straight glycerine this may be even better. Use a small dab, just enough to turn the slurry into a less messy and easily used cream. Too much and it won't dry on your hands quickly enough.

Scent: Your choice. I used 5 drops of Peppermint Oil that I had laying around for a small ProGrip size bottle. 10 drops seemed like too much. It cuts alcohol scent and has very light peppermint aroma without being obnoxious.

 

Chalk is calcium carbonate.

I say again dirt, if it's good enough for Roberto Clemente it's good enough for me.  If there is a tree handy I will rub my palms on the trunk to clean them before the dirt.

When exposed to moisture, Magnesium Carbonate traps water molecules on the inside of its crystalline structure, leaving the surface dry.

 

Calcium Carbonate attaches water to the outside of its structure, causing the surface to feel moist and slimy. Not a good characteristic for grip.

I like Pro Grip a little better - nicer smell, less chalk/liquid volume, nice container. but for the price I can make a TON of my own mix.

 

a $10 bottle lasts me a year (and i use it every day). at that price, i don't have time to make my own mix.

You want to save me money...figure out a way for me to make jacketed bullets cheap and fast.
