Post subject: Concerns with keeping a shotgun in a shed
Post Posted: Thu Jun 15, 2017 10:04 am
So I'm looking for thoughts and info on the pros and cons of keeping a loaded shotgun on a rack in my locked garden shed. I live on 8 acres in a rural area, so there are no legal issues regarding the discharge of said firearm. I'm have a huge problem with rabbits eating my plants and the occasional stray dog that needs dealt with. I know the humidity and changes in heat and cold will be an issue, but how bad is it, really?

Thanks in advance for looking and helping.

Welcome! There are plenty of good protective products available.

Welcome Aboard!

If you have power at the shed, you may want to think about putting a gun safe out there, with a heater (or just a 100 watt light bulb) in it.

Otherwise, there are all kinds of lubricants/preservatives out there that should do what you need. Hopefully somebody will have some suggestions

There's a sticky at http://forums.buckeyefirearms.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10097 that you probably should have a look at, but it's not mandatory, and may be sleep inducing. Just some idea (don't go past the first few pages) of how this place works and who's here.

And a question.... I can understand having a shotgun (or some other weapon) out in the field, so to speak, but I think I'd rather just carry something - whether a handgun or a lightweight long arm - it may be a long run to the shed.... (You could also think about a handgun chambered for the .410ga shotgun round. Not great v.s. a real shotgun, but they're not too big/heavy.)

Regards,

Stu

Have you heard of eezox? I bet you hitting it with that once a month and you'd probably be ok.. it's good stuff.
