I've never really been able to figure out when/where I should be using grease (like lithium gun grease), and when/where I should be applying a more liquid lube, like the oils.

Does it even really matter?

Thanks for the replies.

I do oils on things that move, grease on things that slide. For my sig that meant grease on slide rails, guide rod, and barrel, oil on most everything else. 

 

My 1911 gets a similar treatment. I do not grease my trigger bow, sear or disconnector. It can cause sticking issues.

For 1911/2011 I use slide glide on everything except recoil spring and guide rod,  it gets  Wilson combat grease. If it’s lightly sprung gun for steel challenge or cold weather everything gets oil only.

I use fresh bacon grease before each range trip. Really does the trick.

I've been using Lucas gun oil. I like it. Kinda like the "Goldilocks" oil. Not too thick and not too thin. 

Stays put and does not run off.

I just run cheap Hoppes #9 oil.  The only thing I don't like about it, is that it attracts a lot of dirt and dust.  
Maybe thats all of them though.

I've never used grease on a firearm.

Oil on moving and sliding parts.  When I clean the guns (key phrase) I use CLP which also helps lubricate.
