You have to remember that firearms are made of metal which means they are prone to rust just like any other piece of metal. If you don’t take proper precautions to prevent rust from forming on your firearm then it will interfere with the functionality of it. The one thing that creates rust is moisture or water contact with metal. Now it may seem easier to keep water off of your firearms, but don’t forget about the moisture because this is something we can’t see. If you leave your weapon in a room with moisture in the air then it will create rust on your weapon the same way it would as if you put water on it. Even if you were to cover your weapon with a scabbard, the moisture could still sink into the air pockets of the weapon and cause rust.
