When cleaning your rimfires, do you leave the barrels dry?
That would be my opinion as well. If you're shooting it and it's not sitting in a cabinet or safe for collector reasons, dry is fine. I also find them more accurate dry with no oil in the barrel. With that said, I know many shooters that prefer the barrel dirty for accuracy purposes and they won't touch the action either!! I have the small dehumidifiers in the safe and cabinets I have. They are the type you can plug in to get rid of the moisture they collect and just place them back in with the guns. No complaints here.Yeah, I was talking about shooting and not for storage. I should have been clearer. I was told rimfires especially 22's do not like lubed barrels and are more accurate dry.
