So, do you store your rifles barrel up or down. Action open or closed. Chamber pluged or not???
I put my rifles in the safe barrel up after cleaning. Is oil leaking into the action during storage a real concern?

Barrel up & I'd say if you've got oil leaking anywhere, you're using too much of it.

Once firearm is cleaned, do a wipe down only so as to just coat the shooter.
