I have used rubbing alcohol (70% isopropyl) to speed dry my guns during real hot weather but I have noticed that I do get rust (flash rusting) in cooler times. If I use 99% isopropyl then it dries even faster even in cool weather with less rust. I have not tried denatured alcohol yet (ethanol solvent), maybe that would dry the metal without leaving a rust in cold weather. Guess there's a test in the making.
