long-term storage in a foam-lined case?
I've always heard not to use foam-lined cases for long-term storage, and the reasons make sense to me.
But I got to thinking about it, and many of my handguns have come in foam-lined cases from the factory. And it's not unusual for guns to sit on various shelves for years before they go home with the first owner.
So are the manufacturers using a different kind of foam? Or is it just the factory preservative on the guns that keep them from turning into rusty hulks while they're in storage/transit?
