Shotgun storage

12 posts in this topic

I just bought a shotgun for my wife and I need to store it without her knowing about it. Is it alright to keep the gun in the case till christmas? Or does it need to be taken out of the case?

what kind of case it is may depend on what may happen to it if the case gets or has moisture it will sure rust up the gun. I personally would buy one of the storage socks for guns that they are making now a days then spray the gun down with a light film of oil, put in the gun sock and in the gun case for stroage.

I would hesitate about storing it in a gun case. Moisture can be very damaging to the rifle. Why not just store it in the manufacturer's packaging?

that's what I would do. Keep it in the orginal box but, give it a light spray of lube and maybe even take it out a few times and repeat and if you can get your hands on some desicant packages to throw in it. Hate to see a new scatter stick get rusted.

Why wait till christmas, suprise your wife with the gift before your guys first hunting trip or on your first trip. This way she gets to enjoy the new toy!

Sounds to me like you need to buy yourself a gun safe. Something everyone who owns firearms should have in my opinion.

NICE. Get silicon gunsock. Or a gun safe, my wife has no idea whats in mine, and that is great.

times 2 on the silicon gunsock. Work good and won't rust the gun. Hit it with some sheeth before putting it in the sock.

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
