    From what I recall he's selling batches here and there but that may have just been Styx I don't recall for sure what's up there, I'm sure he'll post though some further info:)

    Yes!  I bought five bottles last time, and I'm down to one, need to resupply!  (Giving a bottle here and there to deserving friends.)

    I am with Brandon.  I picked up a good bit of Styx last go round and have enough for a good while.  But some grease would be nice.

    I'm curious, why is there a shortage of slipstream?

    Did production stop? Is it no more?

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    I imagine because its a proprietary blend and the packaging is pretty pricey unless you buy it in 10,000 piece lots.   :shrug   Hoppes has been making No. 9 for longer than most of us have been alive so amortizing the production cost over time makes it a profitable enterprise.  Same for Ballistol and some of the others.  SLIPSTREAM ?  Not so much.  Not only is it a very modern formulation at the cutting edge of lubricant technology, it lacks the large distribution network needed to make it a big money maker. 

    Maybe GunDoc will weigh in and correct me but I think I'm pretty close to the truth here.

    Right on target. For bottling all the way to distribution there's just me. We are actually down to group buys a couple times per year now because I just can't keep up with it and work full time and live like a single parent of 8 on the weekends while my wife works. Right now time is the biggest issue.

    Most who have used the stuff seem to really like it - A) Because it just works , and, B) Because properly applied, a little goes a long way. 

    I'm thinking the only way to make it work well for you in your current situation is to communicate with your smallish cadre of dedicated users and have pre-scheduled group buys two or three times a year.  That would reduce the amount of time you spend communicating with individual buyers and allow you to focus your time on actually producing the product.  Hell, even once a year would work for some of us. 

    Maybe get with George or somebody else you trust and brainstorm this thing to see if you can figure a way to increase production and marketing to a level that would allow you to maintain quality control and still expand your market share to something more than it is now.   :hmm
