Keep it away from that holster! I'm sure its the cause of the rust.
Do not put it in a ziploc bag, it needs to breath. Get a Bore-Store Pistol Gun Case made from a special fabric that will not retain moisture and has been treated with silicone plus a specially formulated rust inhibitor.
I have one for every gun I store in my safe.
