    Default "Gun Dry" packets. (TM)

    Anyone else using these in your safe's?

    The packaging says to turf them when they become liquid like.
    Mines two weeks old and it's hard as a rock - so I think I have a damp problem.

    This normal? Or should it indeed go hard, then liquify???

    I have read about this stuff , but years ago I put a small lamp holder in my safe , & now have one of these low current 11 W globes on in there .

    Before I put the lamp inside all my leather slings were green with mould & I always had to remember to slosh oil on all metal . Now , about 8 years & no rust , no mould .

    But I've seen this advertised in Magnum , though it was a good idea , but never taken it further .

    Brilliant stuff. The packet will be like a bag of wine when it is finished (not in size). It works very well and worth it. Where did you get stock Avion?

    Lewis:
    Gavin at TS reckoned he had stock two weeks ago. Not sure if it's exactly the same stuff though.
    T'was the only thing I bought at the AIM show. Hmm bag of wine ya say? Wondering about the tannins and aroma.

    Gerry:
    Neat idea that. Do you think a 12v car globe on a transformer would be adequate? Or should I get one of those infra red jobs for reptile cages and hook it up to 220V AC?
    It's a 5 rifle safe. (Not really sure what sizes you get).

    The show is getting worse every year. Last year we got free samples.

    Avion ,
    I guess just about any globe will do , as long as it generates a tiny bit of heat . My safe is a biggish 8 rifle job , & my light is under the bottom shelf , so I dont stuff it up with a shotgun or what ever .

    I cant tell you if the temp is higher inside than out , but its stopped all moisture in there , so I know it works .

    I have also only changed the globe once , just goes to show , these globes work well , not being switched on & off all the time !

    I'll try the low voltage one first then. Think you can pick up a transformer for about R25 - Will report my findings.

    Good luck . As I said , any source of warmth will , or should stop moisture .

    Well, just took my Gamo out for a rat, upon returning it saw that the packet is indeed liquid now. Must make haste with the lightbulb mod.

    Good on you , at least we know the GunDry seems to work . The liquid had to come from some where , the air ? ?

    It would only have attacked some pristine blued steel !

    Have I buggery. Been rushed off my feet just lately. I'll have to remove the safe from the wall and drill a hole for the cable to go through, them a globe mounting for a 220V. Think I'll skip the transformer for now.

    Will let you know when I (eventually) get round to it though.

    220v sounds a bit high. Won't it give of to much heat and be bad for the varnish/ laquer on your stocks?
