    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    My primary carry gun is stainless, so I give it little worry.

    If not stainless, I wouldn't sweat it. Assuming you keep it cleaned and properly oiled and so forth, you should be fine for a little while until you can get home and wipe it down.

    Same thing I always do, go to work, do my job and go home. If my carry weapon gets wet, I dry it off. (my boss is pro-gun and pro-carry, so it's cool to do this at work)

    If your gun only works on sunny days, you need to get rid of it.

    Like Citizen said, if you keep your gun cleaned and oil properly, getting it rained on now and then won't hurt it.

    Always have a rain jacket or two in the vehicle, so just move to CC when the rains come. Once inside cover, I revert to OC immediately though.

    Works for me.

    If you don't have a CHP you could always carry a clear (see thru) sandwich or freezer bag to place or your friend.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Sonora, hush....

    I lived in Tucson for 8 years.

    22 days of "monsoon season" don't count as rain.

    I think you should propose this very valid question to the Washington state forums.

    Would wearing a clear rain slicker still be considered open carry?

    It'd be considered gay... but it's your call.

    This brings to mind the lyrics from Elton John:

    "Can you feel..... the love tonight?"

    A clear slicker is not gay at all.

    I have to agree with HanSolo on this, Sonora.

    Gay would be a bright pink slicker, covered with purple and orange Bedazzler sequins.

    Think Liberace.

    Clear slickers are "ghey", not "gay", there IS a difference ya know. LOL



    I worry about my XD's, they are the older ones before they started coating them in melonite. I have to check the whichever one I carry for rust all the time. Little spots will form in different places and need dealt with. Last time part of the barrel ( outside of it) showed a little spot of rust. I would not have seen it had I not decided to field strip and be all OCD that day. Seeing rust on my babies is like OMG AHHHHH!

    I agree. If a lot of moisture is an issue, maybe invest the extra money and buy an H&K USP?

    Perspiration is much worse than rain water. Rain water does not contain salts and acids. (Unless you live in New Jersey) Besides sweat, what can rot out a wet handgun is the acid in the tanned leather holster. Believe it or not, rubber grips are worse than wood for moisture retention, wood breathes and dries out better. Rubber holds the moisture in under the grips until you take them off and clean underneath.

    Possibly the worst environment for a handgun is not rain, but used as a backup, tucked inside under a bulletproof vest. A CC sidearm carried on your hip, in a pancake holster held tight to your side can introduce body moisture as well.

    OC is a healthier environment for a sidearm no matter what the weather.

    Saran Wrap works too, as a rifle-condom or a gun-condom and allows much greater sensitivity.
