I agree with you here. I live in Az where the temp is currently 108. I have stored my rifle, mag's, pistol and a bailout bag in my truck for over 20 yrs and have never had a problem with any of them. Short of changing out the ammo every couple of years and the mre's everything is the same.

One thing you might think of is putting the little pouches you get out of your new shoes in your carry bag to help moisture build up. Been doing that for years, wife thinks I am crazy but that is nothing new.

Here in Tulsa it's been over 100 (104-105) for several days now. Heat buildup in a closed car is impressive. When I leave work and reholster my gun, the thing is too hot to handle. If I had to defend myself with it at that moment, I'd probably only get a couple shots off before having to drop it! Even if the gun and ammo are OK, my hand isn't! I'll have to work on reducing the heat buildup. Reflecting screens, crack the windows, etc.

Sorry about reviving an old thread, but this is the season for the other half of the discussion, cold. (Yes C3, I did see your post about Fairbanks...) Just wanted to say, Brrrrrrr.... reholstering a gun in sub-freezing weather is like strapping on an ice pack. Another fine reason to open carry. I don't even want to think about sticking that thing IWB!!!
