Yeah, but he'd be carrying a Glock. :lol::

The gun already had slight surface rust on it and the sweat just made it more prominent. If this firearm was completely free of rust, don't think it would rust in just one day because of sweat, even a lot of sweat, unless the finish was already compromised. If this is a blued gun, clean the area(s) as good as you can with 0000 steel wool, just don't over do it. Then get some good cold blueing and touch those places up, else it's just gonna keep rusting. If you don't want to blue it, just keep it well oiled.

Glock and the M&P, last I heard, were using nitride finishes. Yeah, you may have some rust, although it may be related more to your body's acidity than just moisture, but unless you ignore it, it will never be a problem. Walmart sells Birchwood-Casey's Barricade wipes and spray, which is excellent moisture protection. Leather will always hold moisture, and if you sweat heavily, may not be the best choice, if you IWB.

All I can suggest is wetting all the metal surfaces with oil and wiping off the excess after reassembly. Maybe look for a good gun oil rather than an all-in-one CLP, though CLP's can be pretty good. Also, just strip it down and clean it more often.

Try wiping it down with museum wax.
