No. WD40 is a water displacement product - it is a VERY poor lubricant and won`t stay on a surface.
It also rots wood at a rate of knots.

Try ballistol. It doesnt harm wood. It smells to the high heavens though.

LOL, yes, Ballistol really does stink - it`s nothing like as good as Eezox however.

Hahaha, my mother hates the smell of it!
I only mentioned it because it is easily available here in Delhi.

TC,

If owning something is sufficient to make a man an expert in its use, then every man would be a Casanova.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.

Winnie you seem somewhat confused here. We were discussing wet guns, not hot Casanovas ROTFL ROTFL
I believe online forums do expect members to stick to the topic :wink:

If I did not know what I was doing I wouldn't have put personal firearms worth lakhs at risk all these years. Why don't we meet so that you can examine all my handguns and see for yourself if there is any tiny molecule of rust hiding anywhere. In the meantime let me share this. Multiple gun ownership gives your couple of advantages. It gives you first hand knowledge of guns and the right to experiment with your own weapons instead of lecturing on what you might have heard from a guru or read on the internet.
Since I know inplainsight and he happens to be a good friend I would really not want his new pistol to get rusted. Or, are you suggesting i would ? After wiping the water a hair dryer kept at a safe distance takes care of the excess moisture and it is to be used if a gun has been EXPOSED TO RAIN, not for regular maintenance or removal of moisture during rainy season. Since I know what kind of schedule inplainsight is into I cannot completely rule out the possibility of his pistol getting completely soaked during one of his hectic tours.

I guess its time for me to give up on this habit of indulging you to write more. Meeting a real gun guru, getting to know his name, seeing his face, hearing his wise words would be a different experience altogether and I look forward to it :D

:cheers:

TC

:) Thanks TC. Condensation is turning out to be a real pain and I end up having to dry my pistol 3 - 4 times a day.

When do we get the pleasure of seeing you and your guns in Delhi?

Thanks. I plan on purchasing an IOF pistol, once endorse the shotgun on my license. I can just imagine the kind of grief I'm going to face at the licensing authority.

Will post pictures of my guns this weekend.

Thanks Grumpy.

ABM, Ballistol is what I'm using for now. Also got wd40 and hoppes no. 9- not used the latter yet. I guess these should suffice for the time being.

Cheers,

In addendum, i use the Beretta oil and Perazzi grease. Between these two and WD 40 and Ballistol, my basic needs are covered. Plus some solvent for the rifle and ballistol robla solo for the shotgun.
