Probably not a lot of us who won't shoot in a 2 month period.

If I didn't I wouldn't feel a need to re-oil it. I use Ballistol, and it will last a lot longer than 2 months.

I feel the bore is safe for well over a year if swabbed with RIG.

+1.  The guns at the back of my safe, the ones that don't get to go out and play very often, always get a good coat of RIG inside and out.  However, I have recently been trying a product called EEZOX, that dries on the metal, and doesn't attract dust or leave fingerprints.  Also is not supposed to have any effect on the seasoning of ML bores, as it is a non-petroleum product.   Time will tell if it lives up to it's claims.
