We have all done it. And we will do it again. You come home from a hard day afield, drop your cased gun and gear off, and go on with life. Later you or the spouse put the gun wherever you store it normally.
Sometime later you either remember you forgot to wipe it off or when you are going out again, you notice rust forming on the metal parts. If you wait too long the problem will be out of control and require re-bluing by a gunsmith.
Sitting with TJ Stallings of TTI Industries following a day of crappie fishing out of the world famous Rend Lake Resort this subject comes up. TJ explains how some of his cohorts have come up with Gun Protect, a firearms cleaning treatment and storage system.
The system comes in a kit for total corrosion protection. The Spray Shield and Weapon Wipe part is for protection, lubrication and cleaning of the weapon. There is a Safe Environment Module to place in your gun case or safe that contains modules that attach to metals for protection at a molecular level. If the safe is more than 20 cu feet you place a module in the bottom and another in the top.
The third product in the kit is a Rifle-Shotgun Cloak. Just place the weapon into the plastic cloak and close with a reusable plastic tie. It provides up to a year of protection from rust and corrosion. Target shooters are also putting ammo in the cloaks for protection of the brass. The theory is that bright jackets eject faster which is handy in the field. They spray it first and them place in the cloak.
The cloak and modules emit molecules to form a corrosion inhibiting skin (CIS) on the metal surfaces.
That is a lot of recovery and future protection for less than 30 bucks. For more information go to http://www.mygunprotect.com.
