Sorry for the thread bump, but this is kinda relevant to my interests (or eventually anyway).
A fellow club member has been keeping his new Savage .22 @ the SSAA's range office-safe (as he doesn't have his own safe yet), which is in an old ramshackle wooden building, whose vintage I would guess to be about 1910 lol...
Trouble is, since the range is situated practically on the ocean, his bolt has got a bit rusted up in an amazingly short amount of time (he only gets to see his rifle once a week when we have legal access to the range to compete). He's a mechanic & has thought of using a buffer to get what rust he can off. But for further prevention? Can he use a simple dessicant like Damp-rid etc? I'm kinda wanting to know this too for when I eventually get a safe (which looks like possibly Oct-Nov this year)
Apologies for the potential dumbness of this question...I know so very little, heh
