I'm hoping someone here can help me. I'm a writer working on a novel with a secondary character who's a former big city cop, now owner of his own security company. He's guarding a celebrity VIP who doesn't know he's her bodyguard. I figure he has to be armed, so I've given him an ankle holster with some kind of gun in it--probably a revolver of some type, right? (Please, be kind! I admitted I was ignorant!) Anyway, he and the gun end up falling in a lake. So my question is... What does he do about that wet gun? I'm figuring as soon as he climbs out of the lake, he's going to sit down on the dock, pull up his pants leg, take the gun out and... do what? (Other than shoot the girl who pulled him in the water! Not an option!) How do you dry out a gun? I"ve been Googling around and haven't been able to figure anything out. To make it more complicated, this is a relatively minor plot point and I can't spend too much time on it. Still, that wet gun is driving me crazy! Any help would be appreciated.
