    It's a bio-film (bacteria). Sounds interesting for long term storage of firearms. Wonder how well it would work against fingerprints? Cleaning solvents would probably kill it off requiring repeated applications (or get it drunk?).

    Then we could have people shooting drunk guns instead of shooting guns drunk?

    What will they think of next. :D

    Is it cheaper and easier to remove than cosmoline?

    Is it more cost-effective than vacuum-sealing the gun and extra ammo in plastic?

    This gives me pause. In order for these metal oxides to exist, they have to come from somewhere. Oxygen, of course, comes from the air, but wouldn't the metal part of the equation come from the brass/ copper/ aluminium/ steel/ whatever itself? If it does, then... isn't that still degrading the metal, just a bit slower?

    Seems to be a bit early for any conclusive evidence. Still, though... ain't science great? :)
