Thanks to Fingers McGee for his research of Ballistol. I thought it was a more recent product myself. Apparently not so. Dates on Ballistol's history are unusual for me though. My father was born in 1904 my mother was born in 1905. I was born in 1945. Maybe Ballistol and I were destined to make acquaintances afterall.
