    Do you carry a gun when you go to the ocean?
    I have a designated ocean gun that I carry into the ocean when fishing or relaxing and it gets cleaned everyday during a trip.
    The salt water is so corrosive that I will only let that gun near it. 84C6A9BF-20D1-4509-84BB-A48B2D4031E3.jpeg

    I live in Kansas. Yes, of course, I have an ocean gun. I keep it by my space gun.

    Yes and I’ve been in the water (not on purpose) with a handgun. Not that big of a deal honestly.

    I carry everywhere......so yup...there is a beach gun.

    It's the same one that gets carried when I know conditions will be crappy.

    It's uglier than homemade sin, yet it works every time and is very, very accurate.

    I throw a small Glock in the side of my bag while at the beach. Would dare carry a 1911 to a shithole like the ocean

    The last time I was in Florida I carried my Dan Wesson V Bob.

    I had more trouble with my holster, Milt Sparks VMII if I remember correctly. It was about four years ago. Leather will teach you real quick about humidity.

    I live on the coast of Maine and one of my jobs has me working on the shore several days a week. I've carried blued, parkerized, stainless, hard chromed, melonited, DLC'd, and MP3'd guns and haven't had a problem with corrosion. I do not have a specific gun that gets carried when I'm closer to the water.

    No worries there. I only see it about once every five years, and I don’t really care if I see it again

    I’d be more worried about carrying a nice pistol in Kommiefornia.

    You might get some sidewalk fecal matter OR gay commie cooties on it.

    This right here. I’ve carried my p07 on and near the beach. I’ve also sweated all over it. No rust issues at all. But, commie cooties, that’s a whole other hazard.
