Modern firearms are intricately designed and brilliantly engineered to stand up to the stresses of being fired time and time again. Our more modern weaponry can even withstand being fired in the in sand! And yet, despite all of their strength and durability, guns are extremely susceptible to moisture damage. Nothing frustrates a gun owner more than locking their valuable weapon away in a cabinet or safe only to find that moisture has rusted the fine metal components and warped the beautiful wooden accents. So, how do you keep your guns secure while protecting them from humidity damage” Here are a few tips:
- Consider placing a dehumidifying bar or wand near the bottom of your gun safe. These small heaters warm the air inside of the gun safe which promotes air flow and prevents moisture from building up. Dehumidifying wands also help to prevent condensation from forming within the safe or on your firearms.
- Desiccants, or moisture absorbing devices, are relatively small and inexpensive tools that will absorb excess moisture from the air inside of your gun safe. Larger versions can hold about a cup or more of moisture and will last for several months during the summer. Desiccants should be placed in and around your gun safe for increased protection.
- For maximum protection against high humidity and moisture, make sure that you purchase and install a gun safe dehumidifier for your gun safe. Mini dehumidifiers are compact enough to fit in nearly any gun safe and yet strong enough to absorb any excess moisture that eludes dehumidifying wands or desiccants.
