California is pretty communist. Doing everything they can to flat out ban guns and ammo. If you're a criminal you can get what you want but law abiding citizens are screwed.

Where have you been storing it?

Just in its little case like this under my bed:

Hmmm,  did you have any desiccant packs in there?

Foam padding is great for transportation but not so good for storage, it actually absorbs moisture from the air.

Get a small softcase to store it inside of, they make them impregnated with silicon that wont let any moisture in too IIRC.

Also it can't hurt to give it a light coat of oil before you store it either.

Thanks for the tips, I guess I should have some in there if I can find any little packets around the house (maybe in some old shoe boxes) for now.

 

Sounds like I'll need a better case to store it overall though...wish I was able to transport it more...because that would mean it's actually getting used :glare:

 

What would be a good way to get it back to new(ish) condition again? I'm sure I can't just oil away the rust right?

Pelican waterproof cases are pretty good with moisture iirc.

Pelican cases are nice.

 

I'm gonna buy the big one pretty soon. They retail for $120 but I can get it for $50 at work. :D
