Gun rust

I currently attend a game where it rain the whole time, I dried my gun off but after a few days there are some spots with rust. How do I remove the rust and prevent it from happening again. The gun is a G&P defender if that helps.

Buy gun oil, give the gun a good wipedown with the oil before and after game.

Make sure that after the game you dry off the gun and store it with good airflow; inside cases is a bad idea, even if dry.
If small shallow spots of rust appear wipe down with WD40 and then apply a bit of good quality gun oil, but don't drown the thing. Easiest is to apply a few drops to a paper towel and apply it like that.
If there are screws and you can remove them, store them in a bag of WD40, vinegar, or any rust removal product for a day or so, dry them off completely and apply a bit of gun oil.
For larger parts, or deeper rust get a rust removal/wire brush and whatever I mentioned earlier, and then treat with gun oil after.

Can I ask you a serious question? How much sand can you fit in your vagina?

I takedown my gun (general disassemble) and wipe it dry. If I think water got in somewhere bad I'll use a duster canister to blow everything out, especially electronics, motor, hop, etc. If you're in a torrential downpour, then disassemble and dry as needed to protect the integrity of your gun.

Keep some of those silicon shipping packs in with all your guns and gear.

Some people pay extra for the rust.

WD40 is garbage, it was never designed for use as rust prevention, it's a part cleaner, and a poor one at that. Use 100% silicone spray.

1. it's a G&P, they're designed to rust like that.
2. after a wet game, blow the gun off with compressed air, shoot a light coat of 100% silicone spray on it, then blow that off. It won't displace the water, which is why you have to blow the water off, but it will protect any exposed surfaces. Blowing the silicone oil off doesn't remove it all, it just prevent the gun from being sticky and oily.

WD-40 has many uses, but it's designed as a water displacement fluid. So yes, it can clean, lubricate and prevent rust, but it's only really useful on solid metal moving parts. It can/will eat rubbers and plastics and sometimes it just mixes with all the dirt to form a gunk that gets in everything.
