Default How not to store your guns.

A customer brought 12 shotguns in for storage the other week.

He stored them in his basement, in his gun safes.

But.........his wife also had her tumble drier in the basement, without an outlet for the hose.

Well the upshot is he hadn't looked at the guns for over a year, & when he did, he found they were v-e-r-y s-l-i-g-h-t-l-y tarnished.

Rusty barrels.

Close up of barrels.

Least damaged gun is the Beretta o/u on the right.

Can you guess what the Side lock in the middle with no fore grip is ?. Yup its a Holland & Holland !. Bordering on Sacrilege !.

Out of 12 guns, 8 of them fairly cheap ones & not worth trying to save, so are pretty much scrap & will go to auction. The bores weren't effected too much on any of them, but as for the locks ?. Who knows.
I cant believe in fate.
If the futures all worked out, horoscopes & all that, it means none of us are responsible for anything we do, it means we are just actors in a script written by someone else. I dont believe that.
