    Default Temperature differences?

    Hey guys. I have a VP9 currently. I also have a gun locker in my center console. I can't carry at work but would like to keep my gun with me for before and after work. The temperature lately has been in the mid to upper 30's and then mid to upper 40's. Do temperatures effect polymer guns? How about 80's and 90's (which in a car is much more).

    Bringing the gun from a 30° temperature inside to a 75° will promote sweating of the parts. They should be wiped dry and oiled.

    I jar of Milk taken from the refrigerator and sat on the counter will sweat in the same fashion.

    Mine are in myJeep during work hours. Tennessee can be 20 one day and 60 the next or sometimes the same day. My biggest concern is dampness, as @Kost mentioned but here in the south it's humidity (also my Jeep is not 100 percent waterproof anymore so I get condensation INSIDE as it evaporates ) They get cleaned and oiled up. I have shot both my regular carries (P30SK and USPc) in probably 10 degree weather to 100 degrees. It is regularly 120 plus in my Jeep in the summer. I have never had a malfunction of any kind. Ever.
