Come to think of it though. It is a bit of a catch 22. By throwing things in the safe to keep the moisture out,
you end up drying out the wood. So one would think you would have to have some treatment on the wood and something to keep the moisture in the safe down.
I think... that if you keep your gun safe anyplace other than in the basement in a normal house, you wouldnt have to worry much as long as you wiped them down a couple times a year.
I have a pistol I keep out of the safe year round for Justin.
I have to throw some break free in it and on it about 3 times a year.
I have not gone to the range with it in almost 3 years.
Now if you've spent thousands and some rare guns etc etc then you might worry more about than I do.
Mine are all surplus on the low end and used and safe queens to keep them safe to be sure.
I got some of them from a lady whose Dad had died and he kept them in his basement in a safe..
There was was NOS colt 1911 that was rusted.. etc etc.
