    Soggy Bullets?

    The architecture of the apartment I live in is kind of odd, so as I prepare for my first handgun/iwb/safe purchase I need to take the layout of the place into account.

    I have a roommate and a dog, and so everything must be contained withing my personal area [bedroom, closet, and bathroom in bedroom]. My closet isn't very secure, and since there is a ceiling door leading to the attic, and an AC vent right next to it, a lot of condensation builds from the sun's heat in that room and its constantly stuffy.

    My bathroom in the bedroom, on the other hand, has a lock on the door making it a bit more secure in my mind. I want to install a safe in one of the vanity cabinets, but I have concerns about the humidity when showering. Could moisture affect a handgun and ammo stored in a safe thats in a cabinet thats in a bathroom?

    Keep in mind I plan on carrying always, but I'm sure there will be times when I need to part with the weapon for either brief or extended periods. Also, I plan on storing the ammo in the safe as well, so I'm sure there will be some in there at all times. I don't want to be caught in a precarious situation with moldy rounds.

    Any info is greatly appreciated.

    Do a Google search for Aquapac they are real handy.

    so a safe alone in the cabinet probably would not keep the contents completely dry if someone were showering in the bathroom?

    I like that aquapac though-- something to consider

    Desiccant Capsules
    and

    Just a simple thing, in my opinion of course. Put the desiccant capsules in the ziploc bags with your pistols?

    not a bad idea.. i can keep the bulk ammo stored in a freezer size bag with a desiccant, and leave a sandwich size bag w/a desiccant available for the weapon.

    A dehumidifier will get rid of the moisture in the air.
