What an aweful feeling! As I prepped to go to the range I noticed small dots of surface rust on my relatively new Keltec P3AT---specifically on the slide serrations and the extractor. I buffed them out with a toothbrush and coated them with oil.
Some facts....I DONT shoot in the rain and I use a silicon rag on the outside surfaces of my handguns after cleaning. Bewildered, I inspected my gunsafe and found that the foam pad on the bottom was very slightly damp.
Now it has been humid here in past months and my safe does sit directly on the closet's wood floor. I am going to put the safe on a shelf at eye level to get it off the floor and am going to put a shelf in the safe itself to keep my "babies" off the base. I may even put a dehumidifier in the closet.
What other precautions can I take and what are some good anti-rust tips. I am very embarassed as I have never experienced gun rust and try to keep everything in tip-top shape.
Is the damage done to my keltec and will the problem persist?
