True of course. In this case I acquired the shotgun, but had no control regarding the previous owners storage. Mainly, I was just thinking it should have cleaned up better than it did. Come to think about it, I'd consider a marine finish shotgun for deer hunting. Case in point: One day we had some mix of precipitation and cold. After the hunt, I put the shotgun in the car. And this gun has some sort of supposedly better finish on it. Which is why I did what I did. Nine hours later it was covered with a thin film of rust all over. I'd bet the marine grade finish would not do that. At least it would resist better enough to give you some time to be able to wipe it down. Lesson learned. Next hunting trip I'll have some rags and oil in a dry box.
