Even those ruger cases. I figured they would hold up pretty steady for storage.

most all gun cases. they will hold and trap any moisture. they are for transport only, not storage, unless they are made for storage. most aren't.

a gun sock with silicone is made for storage.

A guy I know purchased a handgun to store in his vehicle. The exterior rusted all s***.
I thought the gun was a lost cause, but my father got it all off. I didn't snap any of the after photos.

Any gun that spends extended time(8 hour work days) locked in a car on a regular basis needs to be thoroughly clean regularly. I field strip my pistol daily or every other day and break it down as far as I feel comfortable weekly as mine sees regular time in the car. Only place I've seen any surface rust at all is the sights but I dare not risk it..

Btw.. ROLL TIDE!!!
