    What humidity level does everyone prefer for storing guns and ammo? And what is your preferred method for controlling it?

    I have a little portable dehumidifier thing that you plug in to "recharge" whatever alien technology is inside it. I go for 50% +/- 5%.

    As for humidity, it's whatever my HVAC system dries it out to (most likely in the 50% or less range). Temperature and humidity are fairly constant year round.

    My vault has an HVAC branch running into it.

    Personally when humidity starts getting 60 or higher i get uncomfortable if its warm outside. Cold weather doesn't seem to bug me as much. I actually like the temperature between 20 and 60 degrees for outdoor work. Indoor i like it around 70 degrees year round.
