One of the tubs Damp-Rid does wonders bro. There actually made for a good size room and they do work. If you dont live ina humid climate whatsoev then id def. say buying a unit would be over da top and not needed. Tub-o-DampRid--$10? Dehumd Unit--$150 easy (ive priced units out couple months ago and bout ****)

another preventative step to avoid rust is an old fashioned cleaning and oiling on a regular basis. handling them is a big problem as well. the oils and salts in your skin can cause rust just as fast as humidity.

I never thought about our oils causing rust. I guess that makes sense though.

I use them Eva-Dry humidifiers. They are rechargeable a and pretty cheap. I keep one in my safe and one in the room with the safe. The bigger ones cover a 500sq ft room.

I use a desiccant can too. I have been using one for over a year now. Every few months, I have to cook it in the oven to "recharge". That, and I try to clean everything at least once a year, even if I haven't had that gun out all year. I have a three ring binder that has a sheet for every gun, and I write down the date if I used the gun, cleaned it, or just oiled it down. Works for me.
