    Clean and oil before storing.

    If you clean them well and store them in a dry place like a gun safe (not in the garage), you shouldn't have a problem. I'm on the Atlantic Coast and haven't had any problems. Use a light coat of oil--just like you're probably doing now. Don't go crazy and over-oil--then you'll have a whole different problem.

    I live on the Gulf Coast about a mile from the Gulf with salt water bays a quarter mile north and south of me. I've never had trouble with my guns corroding, but they stay in the gun safe (except for C.C. handguns) until I take them out to use. I clean them well and have never had a problem. That being said, if you leave them in the garage or otherwise outside of your climate control, and/or have nicks in the blueing, you can expect rust within a few days. I am constantly fighting rust on my tools in the garage. Without some protective coating, metal will rust and will rust quickly.

    I am moving to the Texas Gulf Coast from the northern midwest. What do I have to do to protect my guns from corrosion in the salt air?
