Ok so I usually keep a C9 in my glove box. I cleaned my C9 on Friday night and on Saturday when I went to put it back in the car I hear this frantic screaming so I run to my back fence. Well the guy behind me locked his keys in the car and I swear screamed like someone was trying to kill him :mad:. I think in all the excitement I left my C9 on the patio table. Well of course it rained today and I found it wet on the patio table. What should I do to try to prevent rust. It doesn't look like it got too wet, there's a cover over the table but it got a little wet when the wind blew.

Any help would be great :'(

THanks

Field srtrip it and soak metal parts in mineral spirits or alcohol then blow it off/out with high pressure air, then lightly re-oil the critical areas.

Thought from the subject line you had it with the cake in McArther Park?

just spray it down with wd-40 and blow it out with compressed air... after all this is what the WD stands for Water Displacement!

Spray it with wd-40 and blow it out with compressed air. Use a hair drier and blow it dry then place it in the oven at the lowest heat possible (150 degrees) for a hour or until dry. I have dried a lot of wet drills and electrical tools using this method.

Thanks guys, I really don't know how I forgot it out there. It's been stripped and cleaned and sprayed. I hit it with the blowdryer and I'll put it back together when I get home. I'll test it at the range on Saturday and let you know how it turned out.

Yeah, this is going to beat the hell out of the hi point in the kitty litter test I saw on youtube. I also noticed there was no water on the grip, thanks to hogue.

I believe that may have been the first Jimmy Webb reference I have ever seen on a firearms forum.

LOL, someone was paying attention and possibly showing their age?

You know, I still can't believe Richard Harris is dead... he was an amazing actor.

His singing, however...

:D

And, I am not sure it was really necessary at this point. Didn't William Shatner "cover" that song on his album back years ago, when they let actors who couldn't sing (or act either) record music?

I played trombone in an honest to goodness stage band. We opened every performance with "Get It On" and closed with "MacArthur Park". In between we played Ellington, Dorsey, Ferguson and Miller. Ahh, I can still hear my buddy Tim playing the trumpet solo in "String of Pearls". Man, that was a long time ago.

Well, I finally went to the range and My C9 did not perform as expected. I was with a group of people and didn't really feel like working while shooting so to make a long story short I shot 4 clips:

1st Jammed on third round, empty round stovepiped
2nd Feed ramp issue: around the 5th shot, bullet did not chamber and slide didn't stay open on last shot.
3rd shot fine
4th shot fine

I decided to stop here while I was on a roll and come back when I was with fewer friends. Maybe I'll try to find that post about polishing the feed ramp and give that a try. In all honesty I think the spring on my mag may be rusted since I spent so much time cleaning and drying the gun and gave it no attention. So I think I may be calling Hi Point for another mag.

OH, and thanks again for all the help guys. :dead:
