If this is true, why are all the safes I see designed to hold rifles & shotguns vertically and not horizontally?Taken from the Hunter Safety Course:Store guns horizontally, or with the muzzle pointing down. When guns are stored upright, gravity pulls gun oil downward into the action, which forms a sticky film. Oil also can drain onto the stock, softening the wood.Posted Image

Takes to much space to store them that way. I don't put enough oil in the bore of a cleaned gun to run down inside. :ph34r:

If you use too much oil then never use your guns what does it matter if all that oil runs into the actions.Let me take care of them for you and i will make sure they stay clean.
