Gun Storage Discussion.  Since most of us are preparing for using a firearm later, not using it now, these are some important points.


From one manual:


Use a very thin coat of light oil during below freezing conditions. Condensation droplets will form soon after the gun is brought into a warm room, or it may become wet during inclement weather. In any case, all moisture should be removed.


Exterior metal finishes may be wiped down with a lightly oiled cloth. For long term storage, lightly oil the bore, barrel and action with gun oil.  


(As an alternative, I have coated my weapons with paste wax, after oiling, and it has formed a durable finish.)


Your gun should be completely unloaded and stored in a dry area with the action open.


Never store your gun in a carrying case.



From a web page:         


Fleece or fabric-lined gun cases often absorb the protecting oil from a gunís exterior surfaces, and then collect moisture from the air, causing evil rust. Leather (and to a lesser extent Nylon) holsters do the same thing, and the acids in the leather may hasten the process. Store your guns in a secure, cool, dry environment, uncased.


(Again, note, that I personally coat the exterior surfaces of my firearms with Paste Wax, that stops the problem.)


If they will be stored for any appreciable length of time, give the metal surfaces a coating of Cosmoline, Rust Inhibiting Grease (RIG), or even Vaseline--and that includes the bore. Naturally, grease inside the bore MUST be removed COMPLETELY before firing, as even a thin layer constitutes an incompressible obstruction.



Protecting oil, in the bore and especially in the chamber, should be removed before shooting. At the moment of ignition, a cartridge case expands to tightly grip or seize the chamber walls; when this happens, because the case is seized tight, the backwards thrust upon the bolt face is lowered greatly.


How much? Most of todayís modern, centerfire rifle cartridges are designed to operate at between 48,000 and 52,000 psi. When you lubricate the chamber, the cartridge case still expands, but the lubrication keeps it from seizing tight. Consequently, thrust on the bolt face is equivalent to a 70,000-psi cartridge being fired--about equivalent to a "blue pill" proof load. Dry that chamber before firing!

The day I came to the LORD, before I knew what a vision was, I saw myself walking through a devastated United States of America.  You need to accept Jesus as LORD and make what preparations He would have you make.  This site has basic only, survival information, hence the name Survival Primer, or beginning teaching book.  Most of the information has been gleaned from the internet.  The entire site, Survival and Christian, is saved to a single CD disk  that you can own.   The Christian teaching is from my church, and is original to it.  God has changed my life through the ministry of my church. God will change yours, through Jesus Christ, if you let Him.  My prayer is that God lead you into all truth, and that the abiding love that is expressed through His Son, Jesus Christ, come to rule and abide and infill your life, perfectly. Paul.
