Use a small foam brush, brush on a heavy (but not dripping) coat, let it sit overnight, wipe down good and go. This has worked for years on guns that are subject to high moisture and sweat. Repeat every week or two.

Or Ecuador. You'll sweat all the time, the gun will stay soaked and never have a chance to oxidize.

A RIG saturated rag and a quick wipe at day's end banishes rust. I have a P3AT that is getting wear patterns from the past 5 years use and carrying. Hasn't rusted yet though.

WD-40 to lift off the moisture then wipe down with a light coat of CLP.

The trick to keeping your EDC gun from getting rust is each night, take it out of its holster, wipe it down thoroughly with a clean cotton cloth and then give it a light coat of fresh oil such as Hoppes. If your gun has removable grips, it is important to remove those grips at least once per week to clean and oil the frame under the grips. I have a silicon impregnated cloth I use to wipe my EDC gun down. Let the leather holster dry by itself overnight.
If you don't shoot your gun frequently, don't forget to run a patch of oil down the bore every couple of days. If you sweat, it will get in there also. Actually, if you sweat a lot, it would probably be a good idea to field strip your gun every couple of days and coat the inside of the gun with a small amount of oil. It may seem like a lot of work but it does keep the rust off of your firearm.
