You must be from the city because there is dust in the country. And dust on the outside of the gun on the frame or slide isnt the problem and not what we are talking about. When you take a semi auto pistol apart to clean the only thing you should oil the he** out of is the barrel. And maybe a couple tiny dots where the slide goes on the frame anymore then that is overkill and potentially cause gun malfunctions.

First, it doesn't matter where I live, I've spent most of my life in the country, am currently living in a decent sized town, and none of that has any bearing on how I keep my home clean. I don't like filth, I consider gobs of dust on my ceiling fan filthy, especially when it's over my kitchen table, where I eat my meals.

Second, maybe I misunderstood your post. I didn't realize anyone was talking about spraying what sounds now like industrial amounts of oil all over a gun, as that just seems silly to me. I give my guns actions a quick light shot of Rem Oil. That's it. I'm not worried about over lubing, lubing wrong, or any contaminants being caught in the oil, as they get cleaned thoroughly. I also have yet to have any issues with rust or malfuntions.

I kinda like cob webbs floating around by my face like jellyfish while im eating dinner...no not really,lol.

Ive lived in the country all my life and a gun can get filthy wherever you live.as long as a person practices good cleaning habits your guns will be just fine... wherever you live.

OK, Y'all, bring those unrusted guns down to

Florida and see how blemish free they stay.

Depending on humidity, I would recommend a regular

wipe-down for any gun, SS or not.

Hell no. if I can get a good job down there I'll be on my way, but I'm not looking to rust my guns as an experiment!

I like Florida, I'm really hoping to find a job down there. I'm a beach bum by nature.

You would think you had enough to do with sand for this lifetime at least from being in the marines and over seas

Ah, but a sandy oceanside beach and sandy dust comprised of dried animal **** are entirely different things! Especially when there is a place to take a dip to cool off!

Lithium eats aluminum and lower grade carbon steels. Moly has a pretty high freezing point of like 40°F so thats why your adviced to not use it
