I've seen rust start n the perfect shape of a finger print. Looked kinda cool cause it wasn't my firearm hahaZamzow said:I never thought about our oils causing rust. I guess that makes sense though.
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.Zamzow,
I use the large Desiccant Cans! They work great! And to recharge them you just put them in your oven as directed and they are as good as new. However a guy needs something! In time rust will sneak in on you somewhere. I may be crazy but I am paranoid about anything electrical being in my safe with my prized possessions?
