I went into my gun locker and starting to see some mold.
so I put in a Remington Mini Dehumidifier model 365 dryers.
The locker is not sealed very well, will this work.
Or are their are any other tricks you may have.

Wouldn't sealing the door make it worse? Any moisture that's in there when you close the door is now trapped in there, and having a warm dark place with moisture and no airflow is just asking mold to grow.

Having the bead dryers in there pull all the moisture out of the air and contain it. Thats why they need to be changes when they get full of water.

Above are good. Clean it, seal it and dehumidify it! A quality safe dehumidifier isn't such a big investment when compared to damage to your valuable guns. Be sure to check your dwelling too, mold and mildew are dangerous, especially to kids! Good luck with!
