Gun sock?
 
I have a safe in my garage. Here in the SF bay area, the weather gets a bit cold in winter. Would you suggest I store my handguns in a gun sock? If it matters, I already have an electronic humidifier.

Thanks.

I keep almost all of my guns in one, in the safe. Protects against humidity and against safe dings. Couple dollars is cheap insurance! Midway frequently has the pistol socks on sale for 8 or 9 bucks a six pack, and rifle/shotgun ones for not much more. I buy the pink and purple ones on great sales to help ID stuff too.

i'm a big fan as well. they seem to protect well from dings. I generally prefer the Bore-Stores brand, they are however much thicker, the MidwayUSA socks are much thinner and have proven fine as well.

Knock on wood, I've not had any problems with rust. I do spray all my commonly used items in the safe with Barricade. Anything i don't generally use is treated with RIG.

I use socks. A pretty good way to cut down on safe dings and dents. Cheap insurance in case things get a little wet around your safe (pipe bursts, a little flooding etc).

They provide better protection from rust, and they are much thicker which better protects your firearms from dings, etc. Just better. They make them for handguns, long guns, different lengths & widths, etc.

+1 on Bore Stores. :)

Spend the extra $$ on BoreStore brand socks. They are thicker and protect against dings.

This place has the lowest price I have found, not including shipping or other discounts other companies may offer. They also offer more styles then other places.

I have really long socks from Cabela's on long guns like M39's and M1A with wood stocks. Other than that I let them bump around. I''ll try a Borestore.

I'm near you. I use socks for safe dings, but not rust. and only on long guns.

None of my guns rust.

I've had stuff rust when slings get wet and rest on barrels, etc....

Been gradually socking everything over the last year or so. Every time I order other stuff I include a 3pk or 5pk of socks and deploy them in accordance with the voodoo math equation that factors rarity, value, position in the safe, and frequency of use. Regular shooters don't need socks. The SQ's do.

Get these. Maybe $12 a year at most. Stick one in your safe, replace when the water reaches the line.

Rifles? Shotguns? I thought the gunsock it was for "guns." I use it to warm my junk.

Saym14 01-13-2018 1:23 AM
