Shotgun barrels blow up regularly when left oiled buddy. Rifles aren,t as bad, but it is still dangerous, as it does raise pressures in the chamber. I doubt the merest smear of oil, caused by your "two drops" would blow up your gun, but why risk it? plus the fact, that an oiled bore will throw the first couple of shots off target anyway.
Lots of people oil their bores after cleaning, but put a patch soaked in meths down prior to shooting it again, to remove the oil. My guns dont stay unfired long enough for me to worry about leaving my bores dry in the cabinet. My house is dry, my cabinets are dry, and i have several vapour phase inhibitor patches hung in the cabinets just in case.
