I searched first and couldn't find anything I must have lost my Search-Foo powers.

I want to store in safes offsite my back up weapons and the guns I do not shoot, but a couple of times a year (many older blued guns and some park'd guns).

So, they will get shot a couple of times a year I am not burying them ;-) I just want to know if I put them offsite in safes and do not pull the gun out of its sock or case for 6-12 months it is not going to have rust on it.

I used Casey's Sheath in the past, but have developed an allergy to it so need something new (I will miss its smell ;-)

I am hearing good things about Eezox, FP-10 and CLP. Any suggestions???

Eezox probably has the best results from various testing protocols... and the product I've used for a number of years now. The test that always comes to mind, and is easy to find, is this one. http://www.6mmbr.com/corrosiontest.html

I've also been looking at ZCORR vapor barrier storage bags as a adjunct to Eezox. I have not yet had direct experience with them, but plan to order a half dozen each of the velcro closure rifle and pistol bags in the next month or two. https://www.zcorrproducts.com/

From the National Firearms Museum:

http://www.nramuseum.org/media/940963/c ... oninfo.pdf see bottom of page 2.

They, and other museums, use Renaissance Wax. I have used this on my stored guns as well as other non-gun collectibles. So far so good.

VPI bags used in conjunction with separate VPI "tabs" was how I protected my tools in my non-air conditioned garage when living in Houston. I used the Vapor Phase Inhibitor tabs (1 per square foot) in my gun safe indoors as well (teamed up with a 1lb box of desiccant).

They also make a VPI Paper product that you can use in lieu of the bags (I like the bags a bit better since they trap the VPI inside the bag with the firearm).
