when you say "carpet rests" do you mean a piece of wood that is covered with carpet or is it something else? I never knew that foam or carpet rests were bad for storage.

Yeah, wood covered with carpet. I suspect that in certain instances, that would be fine. If you have a safe that stays closed, and is dehumidified, it should be fine. But I have a cabinet. There is airflow in and out. I parked mine across the hallway from the bathroom. The felt rests collected moisture, and caused the barrels to rust.
I don't see what the problem is. Everybody is being nice, and getting along, and I, for one, am learning stuff. So, if you don't like the discussion, don't look at the thread. Or, simply cut to the chase, and close it.
Is there an age limit for a thread, after which we kill it?

I live in S.E. LA. My safe resides in a small room off the garage. It doesn't get much hotter or humid than right here. I use an Eva Dry. Regenerate it about once a week, no problems.
