    Lubrication

    This might sound like a stupid question but with the humidity skyrocketing here in the south, I need to know. I use a grease to lube the areas of my EDC weapon, a Beretta Nano, where there is friction. I find grease works better and doesn't drip or leak over time. But should I be lightly oiling the entire slide to prevent rust? It normally sits in a pocket holster in my pocket.

    I don't know if you must but I doubt it would hurt.
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    Try Froglube. Put a coat of that on once a week for a few weeks, and you won't have to work about rust for a long time. It soaks into the metal pores so it doesn't leave your gun slathered in oil. It's also one of the best lubes I've found. I put a few initial coats on and now recoat the slide exterior about once a month. Works great.

    Break Free CLP has been good for me. But, this is Arizona. A nice light coat should work fine.

    If it slides grease it, if it rotates oil it. I've never oil coated any firearm, carry or safe queens. Always a coat of Johnson Paste Wax. Works for me, always has. 50 years rust free.

    I use Tetra Gun Grease on the slide rails of both my carry guns and oil on anything else that moves. Works well for me. I just wipe down the exterior of each gun every evening with a silicone cloth. Of course both my holsters prevent the gun from touching my body.

    Take good care of your gun pilgrim, and they will take good care of you.

    I've used Gunslick Graphite Lube (grease) on my slide rails for decades. I've heard nothing but good things about Tetra Gun Grease, however, I've found nothing to be better for steel on steel moving parts in guns than graphite lube. Action as smooth as glass on all my 1911's & Glock. I find it better than the new synthetic lubes Hands Down.

    Lubrication

    I use 20 weight motor oil, works great and will not burn off unlike gun oil. Used motor oil on all our hardware in the military
