    Maybe won't hurt a hangun other than attracting extra dirt and powder fouling to the moving parts, during hunting season some people run their semi-auto shotguns completely dry when the weather gets real cold to prevent the oil from thickening up and turning into sludge that inhibits the action, certain oiles are notorious for this. Won't really hurt the gun but it really pisses people off when a $1200 semi-auto duck killing machine turns into a single shot as they pull up on a flock of landing birds

    I've also read that graphite dry lube can be used in situations like that, and for lubing magazines..

    When the S&W 59 came out, many years ago, I had to have one. After a year or so of shooting it, I got another pistol that became my "favorite". So I cleaned and lubed the 59 to put into storage. Around a year later I pulled it out of the box and took it out to shoot. "CLICK" "CLICK"
    No bang! I was devastated.

    After I got it home I took it apart to see if I could determine WTF caused it to malfunction when it had been so reliable the year before. I found that the oil had turned hard and gooey around the firring pin. It was a name brand oil, and I'd give you the name, but I might not remember exactly and I don't want to point a finger at the wrong company.

    What I learned is that too much of the "wrong" oil can be catastrophic. Now, I oil with more deliberation, wipe and/or blow off any that can be wiped/blown off before putting into storage, or use...

    Bottom line is; it MUST go BANG!
