Cleaning and lubrication without firing
 
With the current state of things not getting too the range like before, how often should I lubricate the components in my firearms?

Would think if it is stored properly, with a dehumidifier, you should be good for a year or two. Also depends on the quality of products you use to clean and lube with. I've have a gun I have not shoot for 8 years and it's still clean and lubed and ready. Long story on why it's not been shot. I know I'll catch crap for that!

OK, you piqued my interest, spill it!

I lubricate my firearms once a month because of high humidity in this area, even though they are in a safe. I also run an oiled cloth on the exterior metal when I handle the firearms. Touching them with your fingers can start the rusting process.

It was a gun from my dead beat dad who walked out on us when I was 8. Few years back he moved out of the country and didn't want to pay for some fee to take it with him. So he finally came by to see me and that's what he left. I cleaned it ,looked at it, and put it away.Winchester 30-30
