As most of ya'll know, I disdain the cap worn by kids today, preferring the dignity of a proper hat. But I can't get my ear protection over my hat, so I keep a cap in my Jeep.
Getting it out Saturday, I noticed a build-up of a grayish, waxy stuff at the junction of the bill to the cap. What could this be?, I wondered.
Dawned on me-its bullet lube. The hot blast of air that wafts over me with each shot when the wind is in my face brings along a trace of bullet lube, which, after several thousand rounds, shows up on my cap.
