Dave, I do the silica gel too, but the temp in our house is very steady and humidity low, so rust isn't really a big issue for me.  Think about what else might benefit from humidity control besides your guns - do you just need a dehumidifier in general for the home.  How stable is the temperature where your cabinet sits?

Those temperature swings are the biggest culprit.  If you need to leave it there I definitely wouldn't rely on silica gel unless you have the discipline to bake it out every couple of weeks.  I'm not sure if a goldenrod will be sufficient or not, will depend on how effectively it can maintain the temp in there given the environment.  If your case "breathes" a lot you may want to see if you can seal it up some?
