Do you keep the bags open?

I keep silicone wipes every where I have guns. And wipe them down once a week or every time I handle them. One in the car, the closet (no safe yet), the cleaning bag, night stand, and shooting bag.

No, I use the kind that you boil in the bag, it already has holes in the bag. A wise old man in a machine shop told me about it. I have been doing it for about...well we will just say for many years LOL.

I also keep wipe down rags everywhere I keep one of my guns. I feel rust is just neglect and the way the court system is today I would hate to be charged with gun neglect.
