    Do you all

    take a firearm in the bathroom with you when take shower? I was wondering since it get's hot in the bathroom, will that be a problem to the ammo in your firearm?

    Thanks.

    I do not. Two reasons. One, I have an alarm system in my apartment. Door comes open, 120 dbs blasts out from two locations, alerting me and most likely scaring the crap out of a BG. Second, I don't want the humidity near my guns.

    ANYWHERE in the house, if it's not on my person, I can reach for it in a second...

    I place mine under a towl to keep the steam from condensing on the gun. Never had a problem that way. Plus if some one breaks in the first thing they see is not the gun just sitting there.-Jay

    Its not going to hurt a carry gun any more than carrying it will.

    I don't think it has ever gotten that hot in my bathroom to produce that much steam. Jason above has a good idea I think that should solve any problem from heat or humidity.

    No. I don't take my gun to the bathroom when I shower, but if you feel better doing it, I'm all for you. Your ammo won't be affected in the few minutes you are in the shower. However, the primers aren't sealed on most commercial ammo meaning that moisture can get to the powder. Military ammo is sealed. You can seal your own with varnish. Condensation could possibly occur inside the casing in certain temperature/moisture combinations. Several years ago we had a severe and prolonged rain storm that flooded the ammo storage room at work. Many cases of ammo were on wood pallets. The water reached only the cases on the bottom of the stacks, Federal Match .308 for the most part. The ammo submerged in the water would not fire. Even after months of drying, it would not fire. The ammo that did not actually get wet still absorbed enough moisture so that perhaps a quarter of the rounds would not ignite. This included .223, .308, and 9mm from various manufacturers. I suppose that's why they tell us to store ammo in cool dry locations.

    high humidity = rust, etc - internal and external - with shower and hot tub

    alarm increases your time you have to react

    real handy right outside bathroom but not in view of anyone

    two minute showers - save time, water, and money

    I don't shower with a gun in reach, but, I shave my head while in there so a 2 minute shower is likely going to be 4 minutes for me. I have 3 acres, dog, and a 870 just outside of the bathroom loaded and ready.

    Do you all
    take a firearm in the bathroom with you when take shower?
    I've been know to in the past, but not always. I'm quite confident in my Glocks no matter what the environment. Couldn't say how much of an issue you'd see with the ammo, but likely not much.

    I do! My gun is well protected by CLP and my bathroom has an exhaust fan that keeps the moisture level low.

    It's a simple formula really. Ziplock + Dessi packs = happy firearm within reach.

    No and I don't have any reason to close the bathroom door while in the shower. I also have a 118lb Golden Retriever with a loud bark.

    Then again, there's always one of these:
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!
