I need a good metal protection for long term storage. I prefer an oil type over a grease. What would be a good choice for something I can pick up
at an auto parts store or walmart.

Bar and chain oil is inexpensive, and sticky. Still sticky years alter, make sure to cover it or dust will be very thick.

Take to car wash with hot water wash (not as common these days) Hot water and Dawn, soak in Pinesol or of course diesel to remove

It is for guns. I do have bar/chain oil but don't know if it has any rust/corrosion additives. I do have some cutting oil. I am thinking good gear oil might work.

For guns, Cosmoline. brown wax-like petroleum-based corrosion inhibitors, typically conforming to United States Military Standard MIL-C-11796C Class 3. They are viscous when freshly applied, have a slight fluorescence, and solidify over time and exposure to air. Nothing is better.

Rod.

I use Fluid Film on some of mine for storage. Works pretty good, is OK for wood and is shootable without cleaning first. Have seen good results on tools and firearms over the past few years.

Yes. If you’re going to store one for years, cosmoline.
