What do you guys do about sweat drenched guns?  Hard to sweat in today's weather but what happens if you carry in 90F+ weather and high humidity?  What's the best practice to take care of Glock and all metal CZ-75SP01?

I only use holsters with sweat guards during the summer

What Cope said.

OWB holsters are more comfy for me and reduce contact with skin. Other than that, wipe them clean at the end of each day... protective oil as needed on the metal surfaces. A nightly field strip and inspection/cleaning is not a bad idea. Mine (High Power/Sig P238/CZ P01) has never really been sweaty from carry. Perhaps its due to the OWB holster.

As to the Glock... I cant say but generally the same Id guess. Ill never know about a Glock!

Do you wipe only the exterior surface?  Or do you take the gun apart and then wipe?  I

I only wipe exterior as interior should still be coated

My opinion is to clean your gun before it needs it.

Ive found some that if I use silicone during the sweaty months I see less corrosion. Either use silicone rags or a silicone spray onto a towel before applying. This can also reduce holster wear if youre carrying in a plastic holster.

And use some, "Dawn", dishwashing liquid. If it can clean baby ducks, it can get out/off all that yucky oil and stuff...
