Default Favorite gun care brand for a pistol?

What is your favorite gun care brand for a pistol? This poll has been done many times across the internet but hopefully this one includes some of the popular and newer brands that are sometimes left out. The poll is primarily by brand instead of specific product as there are way to many products out there to list.
You might choose differently for extreme conditions but in this case just vote for your favorite go-to brand for general use.
Sorry if I left your favorite brand out, these polls only allow 12 options to be listed. If yours is not listed you can choose your second favorite or just skip the vote if you like. Thanks.

The discussion of best gun products has been discussed in depth. Its really a matter of opinion and nearly impossible to prove which is best. Some feel that gun specific products are "snake oil", just a gimmick to make money and swear by automotive or household oils. Some are believers in technology bringing about better products with modern additives improving performance. Some believe in oil, some in grease, and others say it depends on conditions. There are also many who like grease for sliding parts and oil for rotating parts. Many say most any product will do for average conditions and they are likely right. This poll is just a chance to vote for YOUR favorite brand, there are way too many factors consider to prove what brand is really best if there is such a thing.

Exclusively Breakfree (CLP) - but I use a tube of Tetra for lube. The C&R stuff and collector stuff gets dowsed in Breakfree's "Collectors" oil.

Yeah guys, I really did want to include Frog Lube, Ballistol, gun butter, Jardine's, Wilson Combat, and a ton of others but unfortunately the poll only allows 12 options. Thanks for listing your choice since it's not in the list of options. I searched a ton for polls similar to this one and tried to pick some of the most popular ones listed and some of the newer ones but couldn't fit them all.

I've been using MilComm grease and hoppes 9 solvent. My Sig came with a tube of milcomm, it isnt my favorite. I am pretty new to grease, so I am going to be doing a bit of reading on this thread. I have heard lots of good things about FrogLube, a lot of people on the SigSauer forums love it.
I purchased a pack of dental syringes to be able to apply the grease more accurately. It has worked great so far.

Dude, every cleaner / lube I use for different items on different firearms. I use EWL, militec, hoppes, clp, mpro7, ballistol, glass kleaner with ammonia, there's too many. There isn't 1 type for every single firearm.

Montana Extreme

The bore solvent smells horrendous, but works on carbon, copper, lead and molly.

Oil works great on any Firearm I have tried it on.

I will also use Birchwood Casey Gun Scrubber

I use Hoppes solvent No. 9 for cleaning by dipping a q-tip to get slide glide lite off the rails. Also for cleaning I use Rem oil spray in conjunction with their wipes on inside and out side of the barrel, feed ramp internal frame, and external finish on my handguns. Then re-lube the rails with Slide Glide lite. Then to for anti friction and anti rust properties I coat all metal to metal contact parts with Eezox which has had the best results in anti rust protection tests. Rust preventatives for firearms

Frog Lube. Smells decent and won't give you cancer. Read the warning label on just about any other product. You'll think twice about not wearing gloves.

As for protection for your gun, this video speaks for itself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqXi947z0Ck

Arg, I really wish I would have included FrogLube in the poll. I considered it and had it on my list but didn't think it would be so popular based on polls and threads from other sites.
