Default Gun socks in safe

Like many of you my safe is jammed full, so this weekend I took my guns out and put them all back in - in gun socks. Any thoughts if that may invite or prevent rust. Currently I am not having a problem but don't really want to start a problem either.

I think gun socks are a great idea.

I wouldn't do it.

Covering them invites rust. Moisture has an easier time inside a tight closed space like a case or gunsock.

I have most of my firearms in silicone impregnated socks, and I cycle the Remington "re-chargable" silica gel desiccant holders through my safes. I have 3 of the desiccant holders and 1 is always plugged in drying, while the other 2 are doing their job.

I have used the silicone Sox in my safe for probably 10 years... No rust issues
I like the fact they help against safe dings
I don't like that I cannot see what gun is inside

I do not use socks on my guns in the safe. I do have two rechargeable desiccant packs in the safe with them. And monitor them closely. When the pellets turn pink it is time to recharge them. They do an excellent job! I still clean and lube all my weapons at least once a year to be sure. I lube them with G-96 to preserve them in the safe.

I have seen some battery powered dehumidifiers if that helps you out in your worries

I also have a rechargeable desiccant gizmo and a big bag of those little bead ones. I am thinking of putting in one of those gun safe heaters as well
