Fleece and foam tend to hold moisture against a gun, which can lead to rust and pitting.

I myself don't leave my valued firearms in such an enviornment...

So you advise against storing it in the glock case for extended periods of time?

I myself do not...all my firearms reside in two large safes with a de-humidifier plugged-in

and are in racks through which air circulates around them...the cases are used to carry them

to the range and back...not much else. I also keep all original cases and boxes in which the firearms

come in as they add value when selling them.

My glock currently sits (when not on my person or immediate control) in a winchester heavy gauge steel pistol lock box bolted to the bottom of my bed. Out of sight unless you are under my bed. While it is a glock, I am not concerned about humidity and moister, I live in Phx btw. If I had weapons, such as my muzzle loaders, that have wood or raw steel/iron parts, they should not be stored with any foam. Those sit in a nice wood/glass display case.

I'm the exact same way. My safe is in a convenient location to the master bed and it remains unlocked while I'm at home and sleeping at night. Before I leave the house I lock the safe.

I keep mine tucked inside an open area of my nightstand. It is held against the side wall by a magnet screwed into the wood. It hides my weapon and yet, makes it immediately accessible. I used heat shrink over the magnet so my Glock doesn't get scratched.

I like the magnet idea. Right now My G17 25th anniversary sits in a safe with a dehumidifier. My G30 and G19 both sit in a cabinet right next to my bed. In the same cabinet as my whiskey actually lol.

Bolt it down if you don't want it to go anywhere. Throw a desiccant pack in the bottom and keep the gun well oiled and there's no worry about rust.

Good idea. Where did you get the magnet?

I got the magnet and the heat shrink tubing at Home Depot. The magnets came in a two pack. They are about 1" X 1 1/2" x 1/4". I mounted three magnets to some 1/8" steel stock I had. I simply stuck the magnets to the steel stock, heat shrinked the magnets to the steel, drilled two mounting holes in the steel and whalaa. It is so strong that I can mount My G-17 with full mag and TLS-1 under a desk or counter. My gun hangs (literally)on to the magnets all day at work.

Hey Augi, do you have any pictures to post of your setup? Would love to see it.
