They sell an aqueous lanolin based creme at the local hardware store. It is called 'Bag Balm' and it works like a charm :shock:

Not sure who first used this in their Martini, I can only imagine the scenario.
Look to your front, mark your target when it comes.

"Bag Balm" has been around for over 100 years, originally made for use on dairy cows to
keep them "udderly" smooth and not irritated.... :mrgreen:
I remember seeing it in the barn when I was a kid.


Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.
