Re: protecting gun bluing!
I find the best way to store a rifle for an extended period of time is muzzle down, so oil can't ruin the bedding or stock. A foam case is a no-no. What I like to do is take synthetic grease, put a very light coat on all exterior metal, oil the barrel, and then wrap the rifle with plastic wrap. Any strong rolled plastic sandwich wrap works. Then I secure the plastic wrap with electrical tape. It is a bit of work but if you plan on storing the rifle for any extended time period this is one of the best ways. I never found rust on a rifle that was stored this way.
