    Okay, How many of you have any problem taking your precious out into the elements to fire it. It is raining like hell where I am and before anyone comes up with "Who brings you in out of the rain", I do. Didnt intentionally do it, but trying to direct drainage and decided to practice a little bit with the rain in my face. You can always clean it.:happy0001:

    Buy a Glock. lol ;) Seriously, those things are like lawnmowers. hehe In all seriousness though, I can see plenty of firearms I would feel bad about taking out in the rain. Worst case, depending on the type of gun and whether it is more prone to rust (like a 1911 or something), you could always try just wiping the entire thing down with oil so it is practically soaked and that there isn't any bare metal.

    Prone to rust?? It is a 1911 ,with stags. That is why I wasnt worried about shootin it in the rain. I would put it up against anything out there. I have never owned a firearm that wont rust., including stainless. Glock is great firearm and I owned several, but, dont think they are bulletproof. You gotta take care of anything tool you use.:texas:

    It was my 25th birthday today, and my gift was a lots of craters on my car after the hailstorm was done with it. It got hit with baseball sized hail up where I was. :332:

    I didnt mean to sound condescending [SIC] My original post was meant to ask whether anyone was worried about getting their main gun in the weather. If we are worried about a little rain or dust, you might want to rethink your choice.HAHA:patriot:

    I won't worry about any of the elements on my weapons thats why we clean them. But it does bring up a story my dad always told me about a single shot 22 rifle that my Gramps bought off someone for 1 dollar during the depression. My Gramps liked the sauce a little too much and Dad said many weekends Gramps would come home after a wild night and my Dad would hide that 22 and all the sharp knives in a bar ditch under water for the whole weekend till Gramps sobered up and had to go back to the feilds (sharecroppers) then my Grandma would give dad two shells and he would get that 22 out of the bar ditch and go get two rabbits for Gramps dinner when he got home. I still have that 22 and it shoots and looks great, but Dad, Gramps and Grams have long since passed and hopefully gettin along alot better where ever they are now! :texas:

    I don't worry about the elements, as civilians, we baby our guns. If you have something (HK, Glock, etc..) used in military or law enforcement, they get put into the elements all the time and keep on going. You should just keep them clean & oiled.
