    + use that rag to wipe down any metal surface after anyone touches them because of sweat and natural oils from hands.
    If you are standing upright, do not worry if your shadow is crooked.

    Yeah I definitely gotta be more carefully about wiping down any areas that's just touched. It's easy to slip sometimes.

    I run a golden rod and keep 2 large desiccant bags plus the oiled rags on the shelf (not soaked but used). Long guns that don't get used frequently get silicone bags. I have a couple Parkerized guns/barrels that flash rust terribly. I've never had to re-activate the desiccant.

    I just regularly inspect and wipe down all weapons that need it. No problems.
