Gun Storage

What's the best position to store a rifle? Horizontal, vertical, muzzle up or down? Why? Thanks.

    I store both shotguns and rifles horizontal and right way up, this gives a slight muzzell down effect allowing any oil in the bore of a shotgun to drain away from the action.

    IMO the best way to store rifles is muzzle down. However, all of my longarms are stored in a cabinet designed for muzzle up storage.

    Horizontal with the muzzle lower than the breech would be a good compromise.

    Thanks. This is what I thought. Just making sure because all the cabinets you can buy are muzzle up. I am working on building one and just trying to figure out the best way.
