Just for the record, everyone. Balota is a lawn hater and a lawn killer. But the problem is........

A few years ago on the day I had to qualify at an out door range with my Glock it rained. it was soaked for a about an hour and a half. I wiped it down as soon as I could and then cleaned it thoroughly as soon as I got home. No issues!

If you're taking care of the gun in the first place there is no need to panic. Clean and oil it at your first opportunity.

It's the leather I am more concerned about. I wouldn't use it until it is completely dry. Damp leather is more likely to expand and contract with temperature changes than dry leather is. I've also seen holsters get green and fuzzy if they are allowed to stay damp.

I like the way green moss grows on any brass rivets or snaps 'n such
