Vacuum Sealing Your Handguns

Pictured is my 1928 vintage Police Positive 38.

After a good cleaning and a light wipedown with Rem Oil, I vacuum sealed it for long-term storage.
Is this a good idea or not?

My old stand-by is 50/50 mix of motor oil and Three-In-one machine oil. Oil heavily then wipe down with a paper shop towel. I store my gun in gun rugs after this treatment, all of which is frowned upon by those better informed than I. But after over fifty years of this practice, I'm not about to change now.

And, yes, some have been stored for several years in this manner. I do check them about once every five years. Others get out more often.
