    There is a crc fish product which is a sort of thick grease oil. Or maybe a can full of lanolin oil.

    reloader supplies in Dorkland sell a product called FLUNA TEC gun coating it,s nanotechnology good shit I put it on at the start of the duck season and sprayed on my shotgun inside and out up the barrel and you will not have to clean off when you want to unwhimp yourself and work up the courage to pull the trigger again here's what it said on the can
    Fluna Tec gun coating maintains long-lasting weapon performance and accuracy. provides highly effective protection against wear. the residue-free solid lubricant protects the weapon from corrosion does not affect the first shot after lubrication and increases gun safety.
    CHARACTERISTICS: Transparent, residue-free-highly lubricating, leaving a satin finish.no resinification.resistant to salt and fresh water extremely temperature-resistant -40c to +750c.
    protects from corrosion.excellent long-term effect. highly efficient even in gun barrels and firing chambers. improves the shooting performance by smoothing out fissures and grooves iin the metal or plastic surfaces. high economical.
    it stopped my guns going rusty in my gun safe in winter and 1 spray can does about 3 guns and lasts a year before having to recoat them and made cleaning after using them real quick and easy

    Use a product called CorrosionX. It comes in a red can and a green can. For really long term storage use the green can. It is thick and sticky and will coat everything in a thick layer. This will need cleaning before use however. The one in the red can is great to clean, protect and store your firearm until the season rolls around again. You won't need to clean it before use. Use in place of gun oil or bright bore, it does everything. I cleaned a rifle using normal cleaners then I redid t with CorrosionX and it was amazing how dirty the wipes came out even after it had been cleaned using other products. I use it in the marine game and the results are very impressive.

    CorrosionX was actually developed for the US Navy to clean and protect rail guns on ships. These guns sit there on the deck of a ship covered in sea spray for months at a time but need to be able to light up and fire instantly. It will look to cover metal through wicking so any bits you miss will eventually end up with a thin film on them. It's also highly effective for cleaning bores as it will get in under any crap that is left in rifling and lift it.

    Cosmoline is used to store firearms for decades. I know of people who have found firearms stored under ground for 70 years and are as good as they day they were stored. However it takes a lot of cleaning before use. You would only use cosmoline if you wanted to bury a firearm long term.

    You can get in pump spray and aerosol. The pump spray is the best one to get for cleaning firearms. I don't use anything else now.

    Google it online. Some marine shops stock it and some engineering supplies. The agent in Auckland is Reid Yacht Services, Mr Google will put you in touch with them.

    You could use denso if you don't plan on shooting it again for a while. It's probably the closest thing you would get to cosmoline easily. A bit over kill though. A dehumidifier for the safe is the best idea.
