    I have been using this one for the past few years. No issues. Seems to work well.

    I bought one of the Eva Dry dehumidifiers off Amazon and really like it. I think it might be dang near the exact same thing that IKIC posted, just different branding. Also bought a little humidity sensor to put in the safe just to see how it does and it maintains it right about 38% all the time.

    For guys that just use silica packets, wouldn't those packets only absorb so much moisture and then not be able to absorb any more? I think what IKIC posted and the Eva Dry that I have basically just have silica in them but then once a month or so, you plug it into an outlet overnight and it removes all the moisture from the silica. I could be wrong but that's how I interpret it. I used to just use silica packets but for $20, the Eva Dry seems like it's worth it.

    my safe is in my house and I have never had an issue with water. I know some people keep their safes in the garage or shop and don't heat the room in winter .

    if you don't put the gun in wet . how would water get in?? I also am in a low humidity area.

    Opening the door is enough concern for me. Especially in St Louis where we could have 90% humidity.

    I own a furniture store and get packs all the time in some of our freight. so some of the packs are very large. I just throw old ones away and throw new ones in. I don't really think about it to much and I do live in a rainy environment.

    DIY Public land Elk hunts are not for everyone but everyone should try it at least once in their lifetime. And for all those younger guys that say I don't have the time, I don't have the money, I'm out of shape or I don't have the experience to do a trip. I only have a few things to say. Take the time to make a experience, Save the money to make the trip, Get in shape so you will enjoy the hunt and the only way to get the experience is to go and make it happen. Hunt on Mark!!
