A blued firearm has very little protection against rust. The finish is mostly cosmetic as you found out. Blued firearms require alot of care to avoid rust in humid situations. I would leave it alone and let it be a reminder a a great trip and a lesson in gun care. I don't mind using guns picking up some dings etc. If you are going to refinish it, use something like electroless nickel, chrome, armaloy etc. etc. Even the old time parkarized finish is much more rust resistant than blue. A good blue job is not cheap and a cheap one will round off the shart edges, smear the lettering, and dish out screw holes on your pistol. Forget it and learn to live with it.
