For active storage, I like corrosionX, absolutely stops/prevents corrosion on ferrous and aluminum alloys for 2 years.

Longer term storage, I use R.I.G. 10 years in a very himid non-ac Ga. house, no rust. It works for me.

And, CLP on my goto guns.

Once again Campy speaks words of truth . . .

Most of my toys are stored in my basement. I run a dehumidifier 24/7. Humidity runs around 35%. Use a Golden Rod in both of my gun safes too.

Twice a year all weapons are "wiped down" with CLP and a oil patch run thru the bores. And this if for the weapons that I don't shoot often. Others are cleaned after and every time I shoot them.

I've spent way to much $$$ to have my babies just rust away . . . . . .

I have a neighbor whose father bought a Richmond Rifle back in the early 50's when Civil War stuff was dirt cheap.

He kept it in a rifle case at his lake house and never cleaned it or oiled it.

It WAS museum quality when he got it, it looks like a dug relic now. What a waste. One dollar's worth of grease would have prevented thousands of dollars of damage.

Actually I think it can climb a little here in Tucson in the Monsoons too, but I haven't had any problems yet.
