    Anyone have any gun storage recommendations. Any good platics wraps or something similar out there?

    Do not store firearms in plastic bags or wrap. It retains any moisture and will cause rusting.

    How long are you planning on storing it?


    Gun socks are great for trunk gun storage. They usually last for a year according to the manufacturer. My trunk gun has used the same gun sock for almost two years with no issues.

    Note: Before the gun sock, my gun would develop a bit of surface rust within a few days.

    Wipe them down with some CLP and put them in a safe with some dessicant or whatever you like to use that will suck the moisture out.

    :crying: I know, still trying to decide if I want one from CMP.


    Mine are fine in the safe with one of those Browning dessicant boxes that you recharge in the oven, only have to do mine once a year if that.

    Gun socks if not, worked fine for me for many years.

    No plastic unless you douse in oil and throw in a dessicant.

    same here, use a couple of rechargeable dessicants in the safe.

    Safe is lined with some thin foam... what do others use in place of the foam? concern is that foam could still hold moisture where gun contacts it, even if dessicant used
