I'm about to walk 4 or 5 miles with a friend. My husband insists that I have my gun. I have an IWB holster and it works with my yoga pants because they are form fitting. Here's my concern...... It's over 90 degrees so clearly I will be dripping in sweat when we get back which means some sweat will have gotten on my gun. Is it alright if it gets wet?

It will be fine. May just want to wipe her/him (the gun) down when you get back.

Yes it's fine. Just clean it after. People hunt in rain and snow. And many Beads of sweat are created in Iraq n . Again just clean it when done

When I'm working in my yard in this east Texas heat & humidity, my clothes will be saturated with prespiration. I just wipe it down with a dry cloth & dry some of the moisture out of the holster, but I never leave it in the holster overnight & that gives the leather time to dry out.

But they are all protected by Finish Line Dry Lube which is a combination of wax, teflon & oils. Even one of my Bersas with the finish removed from the flat areas of the slide shows no signs of rust.

Unless Fathead bought you the rare water soluble pistol, you'll be fine. In Vietnam I started sweating when they opened the door of the airplane at the arrival airport. I stopped 12 months later about 10 minutes after they closed the door of the departing airplane. In between spent a lot of time getting rained on. My guns made out better than I did.

Wipe it down. Light lube. Stay away from WD40.

Thanks everyone!!! I actually ended up sticking my .380 between my bra and my tank top instead of bringing my other gun but regardless it got sweat on it.

Itll be fine, i went to a gunshow at Knob Creek range one year with a buddy and it started pouring rain. Needless to say both my 1911 and my buddy's smith & wesson were soaked as we were too. We tore them down to the frames and cleaned them when we got home.

As said, clean it or at the very least give it a good wipe down with either a lightly oiled cloth or a silicon cloth. Be sure to hit the grip screws. In the hot, humid days of summer here in Indy I usually switch my EDC to a stainless gun loaded with nickel cased ammo like Remington Golden Saber.

;):D.....now that I have that out of my system, gotta go with the frog lube also. Clean it when you get home, a little frog lube and you should be fine. Good for you for carrying while out walking around.
