Deer hunting, I load a clean dry barrel and leave it loaded until I shoot. I have left them loaded until the following season, a year later. Never a problem. If I shoot, clean right away. I hunt waterfowl with a Pedersoli SxS 12 ga. At the end of the day, if I am hunting the following day, just pull the caps and leave it dirty over night. Here in California It is legal to transport loaded and uncapped.
