    Glock vs Humidity

    Hello!
    I have two glocks (G19 and G26), and sometimes I think on leaving the G19 in my car overnight. I live in Miami where humidity is high.
    Is it a good idea? Would it damage the gun or ammo if I leave the gun in the car for weeks?

    Thanks!

    I would think the ammo might have more issues than the gun. Glocks have a tough finish on em.

    The Tenifer is reputably tough, but I'd keep it real clean and very lightly wiped.

    the miami weather will not hurt your glock. I dropped my glock overboard once, maybe twice when i worked in the keys (key largo area). just one more reason to go diving on the clock. the salt water did not hurt the gun, just gave it a cleaning days later, much later. but the local "low lifes" will hurt your glock. take your gun inside your residence at night. if your car is in the open (driveway) it is fair game in dade county. late night in dade county is when the bad guys come out to see what they can steal. come to think about it, anytime is a good time for bad guys to come out in dade county.

    today ammo is good and normal weather will not effect it. i have shot ammo that has been overboard, rained on, and set in the trunk of a g-ride that was wet for months with out any problems.

    take your gun with you, it is no good to you in the car.

    I know what you mean frankmako...I don't want it leave it in the car. I'm just being lazy. Every morning I take the G19 and the G26 to my car, and after work back to my house.
    I was thinking on leaving the G19 in the house as the house gun, take the G26 to my car every morning and buy a pocket gun. That's why I asked in another thread about the Guardian .32acp.
    Thanks again!

    Some guy on the AR-15 boards did a terrible torture test on his GLOCK 21 and it lasted just fine....GLOCKS are probably the most abuse-proof pistols out there.

    Question

    LincTex

    Are you talkin' about the guy that dropped his GLOCK out of an airplane...actually shot bullets at it...slammed it down on the concrete...and did about 50 other things to it. Complete with PICTURES...even.

    That was a hoot reading that.

    Yep, That's the one!!


    I think my 21 has proven its durability
    For several years Iíve been abusing and neglecting my Glock 21. A running joke among some friends and I, nothing planned or documented. As I tell people what it has been through, most simply donít believe me. I wouldnít either, I guess. If someone told you their Glock has at least 150K rounds through it, and has gone almost 15K rounds with no cleaning or maintenance, would you believe them?

    If no one has the patience to read through the whole thing (which is really VERY interesting) you at least have to watch the video titled "shake the dirt out" !!

    My wife and I honeymooned in Estes Park CO. It's not that you guys don't have humidity ... it's that there's no oxygen up there!
