That is how they are trained (I trained with them). But the reason we train that way is to keep the 'crap' out of the action.

The reason I ask, by the way, is because I'm looking at a possible move to Minnesota. It's gonna be a lot colder there. Around here, the humidity could work as a lube! Just gotta protect against rust!

Louisiana to Minnesota, OMG are you in for a change. But synthetic oil is good in both locations!

My SR40 stays in the truck sometimes when it gets to 20-30 below (Minnesota, where that happens often). I use CLP for all my stuff, never an issue regardless of temperature. It is rated to retain it's viscosity down to -40.

Clp also as a run of the mill lube. Pro-Shot Pro- Gold on area than need a heavy lube. Both work well down -10 that I know of. Labels cover another 30*.

Ditto for me. That's one of the things they (those oils) were designed for.
