    I've got gun sleeves made of Zerust Excor. It's a heavy plastic sheeting impregnated with corrosion inhibiting material.

    Rifle bags start at $2.75 each. Handgun bags are less.

    Or you can buy the material in bulk & make your own using a wood-burning pen, heat sealer, or just wrapping your gun with it & putting it in a FoodSaver tube and vacuuming the air out.

    A simple inexpensive way to protect a handgun is to buy the bulk stuff,wrap a part of a sheet around the handgun, & throw it in a Zip Lock Bag.

    If you have a vacuum sealer, you can give your guns the ultimate protection. Rolls of FoodSaver bags cost about $40.00 for 100' on ebay. If you put your guns in Zerust, vacuum all the air out, & seal the ends, then as long as the vacuum is tight, you know that NOTHING has gotten in. I make them about 4 or 5 inches over length, so that I can cut them open at the seal, inspect or play with the contents, then repack & reseal the items.

    The Zerust contain a petroleum distillate that precipitates on the metal of the gun while it's in storage, plus it's impregnated with some sort of ferrous material that is supposed to have any loose water vapor attach to it, rather than the metal of the guns.

    Small Handgun 6"x10" .75
    Handgun 7.5"x12" $1.00
    Large Handgun 10"x18" $1.00
    Scoped Handgun 13.5"x18" $1.25
    HandCannon 13.5"x24" $1.50
    Rifle 7.5"x55" $2.25
    Scoped Rifle 10"x55" $2.25
    Long Rifle/Shotgun 7.5"x60" $2.50
    AR-15 13.5"x48" $2.50
    Fn/FAL 13.5"x52" $2.75

    Postage for the Sleeves: $2.50 for the first sleeve. Add .40 for each additional rifle sleeve, and .20 for each additional handgun sleeve.

    6 feet X 14 feet
    1 piece $8.50 plus $4.50 shipping.
    2 pieces $15.00 plus $7.00 shipping.
    3 pieces $21.00 plus $9.00 shipping.
    4 pieces $26.00 plus $11.00 shipping.

    For a rifle, it generally takes a piece about 20 inches by 42 to 55 inches per gun to wrap or seal your gun.

    I also have Zerust in light weight wrapping. It is about 36 inches wide, folded in half. This, again, works well by wrapping your gun in it, then sealing it in a plastic bag or tube.
