Yep...I do that with mine...a good wipe down with a heavier oil...30 wt car oil works well, then into the safe. No fingerprints to start the rusting process after the wipe-down.

Be careful what you lay your guns down on...some fabrics can and do hold moisture...leather has acids in it due to the tanning process...sheepskin "gun sleeves" hold moisture...

I use a plane wood rack, finished in two coats of poly....and I make sure that the gun room does suffer from extreme temperature variations to avoid condensation issues. In that regard, a garage is not a good place for storage., but your closet might be good, no matter what your wife says! Rod
