Anyone have thoughts on long term gun storage in a relatively air tight fireproof safe. I havenít developed a consensus yet on how to best store rifles but was overseas eight years last time, and donít want rusty guns on my return.

Moisture is the obvious issue and how to prevent metal damage caused by it. Mold and other contaminates a possible concern.

Found these articles but am not sold on any particular procedure yet.
