    Greetings!
    My carry pistol is a Ruger LC9s. Due to a lack of foresight on my part:(, I have some light rust and minor pitting on the slide where it contacts the holster. It is on the slide engraving. I've managed to take off the surface rust, but I'd like to figure a way to prevent it happening again. Right now, I'm using a very light coating of Vaseline, but while it seems to work, I consider it an inelegant solution at the least. I can't figure a way to get into the engraving which is where tne whole problem started. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Johnson & Johnson Paste Wax works very well for sealing up a metal surface. I live in a high humidity area and this is what I use.

    For deep penetration G-96.

    It has a strong smell but it is one of the best products I have used. They recommend three coats to get into the pores of the metal.

    I see rust on those all the time. I would suggest using a good wax to help prevent any more rust

    Boeshield is ineffective on my tablesaw (for which it is specifically made, and which I never try to holster), so I doubt that it would work on the LC9s. A good idea by Boeing, for some things, but not firearms or woodworking.
