I am planning on kayaking in Mammoth Cave NP this weekend. I do not have my CCW (taking the class next weekend...finally). I would like to OC my 3" Charter Arms .357. I was actually there last weekend and asked a few rangers and to my surprise, they said I was legal to carry in the park, just not in any buildings.
My question here is not really to debate OC vs waiting till I can CCW. My main question is what happens if the boat tips? Will complete immersion be destructive to the gun? Or will a good complete cleaning as soon as I get home be ok? I don't know a whole lot about anything beyond basic cleaning and shooting so bear with me. I don't really like the idea of putting it in a plastic bag, then in the holster.
Any suggestions welcome.
