I have a couple of pistols that won't see much, if any, more shooting but will remain in the safe.

Any advice on how to store these long term to avoid rust or damage? Should I just put them in the silicon-treated socks that I see for sale? Or take off grips and store them oiled with gun oil in a container or baggie of some sort?

FYI, one is matte blue and the other is hard chrome. Thanks.

Hoser- There is a man in my town that use to be a USAF pistolsmith way back when. I had bought a new series 70 GM from him that he had stored in a cigar box, disasembled and coated with RIG (available from Brownells) and the gun still looked brand new. He told me that it had been stored for around 15 years. Hope this helps you out.
