    I live in Houston.
    Houston=Humidity.
    I oil ALL exposed metal parts. I do, however, make sure to wipe away all excess oil and just leave the lightest possible coat on each surface, especially inside the barrel.

    I clean and oil the whole firearm and then store them in silicone impregnated gun socks from Cabelas. Even here in the dust bowl, I have not had a problem with dust.

    I do not!
    I've always applied a light coat to the barrell to prevent rust. I have never had a problem with dust build up.

    I do, but apply Militec lubricant and back it with a heat gun, and then dry it off. It soaks into the metal thereby making it easy to just wipe the bore clean next time. Its the best of both worlds.

    I like to get it on new guns before they have been dirtied up, makes all subsequent cleaning much easier. It does not attract dust that way.

    True...but on the other hand, dust cleans off alot easier than rust, and I'd rather claen once a week than deal with corrosion.....:D
