It seems that no matter how well I wipe the gun down before it goes back in the safe or back into its back
I'll ask this -- while I'm guessing you meant to say "back in to it's BAG", it brings up the question of where these guns are spending the bulk of their time.
If they sit in any manner of foam or enclosed case, that could be the problem. Inside the open air of a gun safe with nothing touching or surrounding them is what you want. Sitting inside any kind of foam or a zippered or otherwise enclosed case is not
a good idea because these cases can draw and hold moisture.
These cases are absolutely fine for transport. What you don't want is to sit a gun in them for days, weeks or months.
