This is all I have hunted with for about 20 years. I say that, about 3 years I had a benelli Nova that was junk, crap trash!
What I would do if I was you is wrap your remington in camo tape, or the next one you buy get the camo pattern on it. It is a big time rust preventative. Another thing, once the bluing is gone on your gun you can rub with shakala from the voodoo chief, but it isn't going to keep the rust off. Have it reblued about every 3-4 years if you hunt in the saltwater. Like the others said, put oil lubricant on the gun after each hunt, it is important to do it promptly after the hunt too, as the corrosion will begin soon if not. This is only a temporary measure against corrosion though. Another thing, if your gun is wet don't put it in your gun case it will rust and become an anchor.
