    By far the best way to store guns for long periods of time is to cover it with cosmoline. It's a pain in the butt to remove, but well worth it. I would have (almost) no qualms about storing my rifles at the bottom of a pond if they were packed in cosmoline. And hey, if they eventually ban my guns, that's exactly what I'll do!

    Just in case you decide to go that route, you can buy 10-lb. bricks of cosmoline at www.armysurpluswarehouse.com for $15 a piece.

    Otherwise, I have heard of people packing the metal parts of rifles in Vaseline.

    to try some of that stuff Doc sells too, if he gives
