    LOL, right glockman, I'm with you. BTW, I've always liked your avatar but have been meanin' to ask - are you the one with the cap & glasses or the taller one with the...big ears?

    Don't some people call the new polymer guns "Tupperware guns". I carry an M&P and the rain doesn't bother it and it keep my ammo fresh.

    I would usually either have a rain jacket or an umbrella...anyway, Glocks shoot underwater.

In any case, I am not aware of that practice being used in Arkansas (I have gotten replacement DL once before) and when I got pulled over the cop didn't even ask about it. Doesn't seem to be an issue here

I'm curious as to what/how you carry in bad weather. I was looking into buying a used 380 for bad weather days but haven't yet. I have used clear nail polish on my pf9 carry ammo to try an keep reliability there. What are your thoughts on this subject?

    Thanks SaviorShot
    Spray the gun down with Barricade or a similar water displacer. You should be doing this when cleaning anyway.
    Unless you OC, the gun shouldn't get wet anyhow. It should be holstered and covered up under your jacket/shirt.

    Oil kills powered and primers not water
    Even oil will most likely not harm a primer, see linked torture test, 6 weeks with primers soaked in oils, all fired OK.

    Would I carry these rounds for self defense? No, but if I pick up a round with oil on my fingers I am not going to toss it in the trash either.

    Lish, I'm thinking if your shirt gets that soaked no one, men at least, will notice a pistol printing.

    To answer the original question...The WD in WD40 stands for WATER DISPLACEMENT.

    My friend is a commercial diver. Thye carry "bang sticks" for sharks.
    A bang stick, for those unfamiliar with the nomenclature, is a handspear, with a thingie on the end which is capible of firing fire-arm ammo when it is presesed hard or rebounds off the shark. He had a .223, and a 44 mag. Think about it: the ammo goes up to 180' (50 meters underwater) which is 6 atmospheres total, or roughly 72 PSI and does not hurt the ammo. We took a 44 mag which had been submerged 4 times and fired it and it worked.
    I would not woory about the ammo getting sick, I worry about me getting sick.
    If I got really soaked, I will squirt some WD 40 into the action, followed by shop air. (Unloaded of course.)

    A hundred time this! We had a saying while I was on active duty, train like you fight. If you change how or what you carry based on the weather, if the time comes and you are not carrying your "normal" carry weapon, a lot of bad things can happen. And most of them to you.

    Another way to carry in the rain is, with your head down and walk a little quicker!
    Never challenge an old man, because if you lose, you’ve lost to an old man, and if you win, so what?
