    I am looking at purchasing a gun safe/vault. I know there are various models to choose from. My safe will have to be put in my basement. It is sort of climate controlled due to central heat and air. Do I need to worry about my guns rusting? It is a typical basement, a little damp. If I put a dehumidifier in safe, will that help? Thanks for advice, Matt

    Yes. Always worry about rust. Get a good digital hydrometer. I have a dehumid rod in my safe and a run a larger unit one for the rest of the basement. I keep it at 40% humidity. Haven't had a problem yet. Actaully I keep my basement at 35 to 40% all year long. Adding humidity in the winter and removing it in the summer. Dave T.
