I'm thinking remote BOL that doesn't have running water (or power, normally) over the winter unless people are there and the heat is being run.
What are key considerations for this environment? I would think oiling up the guns with a heavier-than-normal oil and put them in a gun safe with an electric dehumidifier. How do those dehumidifier drain from inside the safe? Any thoughts on this scenario?

Four mags in a Glock why would you need to make it to the safe? For goodness sake buy a door and turn on a porch light!
I store mine locked in a safe bolted in the back of a closet in the darkest room of a house guarded by ADT, a moat and a Pitt Bull. Or do I?

Jeriah wrote:To put a somewhat different spin on this topic:
Where I live, most of my guns I can't keep at home (fun gun ban), and the rest I choose not to (mandatory registration). I have to keep a low profile at the storage unit (they're legal there, but I don't want to attract thieves or prying questions), with the result that I really can't do any regular maintenance. I keep my guns in gun cases or locking wooden boxes. I recently moved from one storage unit to another, and in doing so, looked at my guns. My MAK-90 has rust on the barrel!
Obviously I need to clean this, but after that, how should I store my weapons to prevent rust? Weren't there some kind of sock things that you slipped over your guns to prevent corrosion? I don't want to smear 'em with cosmoline, but I don't want 'em to rust, either. I don't get to shoot them often, but hopefully sometime soon I'll get a chance. When I do that, I'll give them a good cleaning, and put into practice whatever protective measures I decide on. Any suggestions?

A large device detonated at 400–500 km (250 to 312 miles) over Kansas would affect all of the continental U.S. The signal from such an event extends to the visual horizon as seen from the burst point. WIKI
sooo.... does anyone have any thoughts on this "gun storage" problem. my safe manufacturer says they can have someone there within the hour in such a case to which i just laughed and said yeah ok.
or am i just paranoid ???? thoughts???
