    Steel & Wood = light coat of oil or silicone wipe for storage?

    Not China-virus or politically related, hopefully :) Question: How do you prepare your steel & wood firearms before winter storage? I use Uncle Sam’s procedure of a light oil coating but I also have used just a Birchwood Casey silicon wipe if the gun did not get wet that year. I have only used...

    How Do You Prep Your Dies For Storage?

    I've been going through my reloading stuff since it's been a while and plan to do some reloading after the Holidays. I ran across some dies that I had stored on a Dillon tool head for many years and low and behold there was some rust. Fortunately it was minor and easily fixed with some gun oil...

    Third party gun storage need

    Long term storage

    Looking for some insight, I am buying a travel trailer. I'm thinking about storing a handgun and a long rifle inside, my thought is to deep and thoroughly clean both coat with rem-oil, then vacuum seal both, and vacuum seal a couple boxes of ammo. Any body else done the same or have a better idea ?

    Mobile AR-15 Magazine Storage

    Last week we found ourselves in pre-evacuation mode so I packed my truck ready to leave on a moments notice. Fortunately, even though it got very close, we didn't have to leave. While I'm going a good job on the "bugging in" style of preparedness let's just say that the getting ready to "bug...

    Handgun Storage

    I have ten handguns that I have kept in one of my safes. A couple of them are in holsters and the others are in those Apache (Pelican style) boxes that Harbor Freight sells. I'm kind of curious as to whether or not I'm the only person that keeps a couple (or all) of their handguns in holsters...
