Answer: 
It is not a good idea to restore/refinish antique or otherwise valuable firearms. The more rare or valuable the gun is, the less one should alter the finish or any other part of the weapon. This is based upon personal expertise acquired through 60 years of gun and edged weapon collecting and dealing. As an example, I had a private party want to sell me a fairly rare Parker shotgun that, in unrestored Read More
It is not a good idea to restore/refinish antique or otherwise valuable firearms. The more rare or valuable the gun is, the less one should alter the finish or any other part of the weapon. This is based upon personal expertise acquired through 60 years of gun and edged weapon collecting and dealing. As an example, I had a private party want to sell me a fairly rare Parker shotgun that, in unrestored condition, was worth around $12,000.00. After he attempted to reblue the shotgun and refinish the wood, it was worth about $1,200.00.
If you just have to have the gun restored, take it to a professional. Read Less

Yes you can use it on a firearm, it will not damage the metal and I promise you you will be amazed at the results you will see in removing the rust. If it is fairly thick rust I would first suggest loosening it up lightly with a soft brass bristle brush so as to not scratch the metal.
Soak the firearm in it for 24 hours

Depending on the amount of rust a second application might be needed with new fluid you cannot reuse the old fluid.
Try and devise a way where you can use the least amount of Metal Rescue to soak your firearm in it...perhaps build a cheap long thin plywood box with a plastic liner (Metal Rescue does not damage plastics) just big enough to hold your firearm.
I'm serious this stuff works miracles and I have used it countless times around my house to restore items I've thought were lost.

This Rust Remover bath is only for soaking. Use Black Star Rust Converter Aerosol, spray it on and in 20 minutes your rust turns black then you can paint over it or leave black.

Yes you can spray it on and leave it but you have to keep it wet. If or when it dries out it stops working. If you could soak some rags with it and place them over the rusty areas it would work better. It's a metal shed right? Use magnets you can buy at The Home Depot to keep the rag against the rusty areas. Loosen the rust up with a wire brush on the really rusty places first. The trailer hitch on my truck was rusty so thats what I did, I wet some rags with it, wrapped it around the hitch end and used string and magnets to keep the wet rag in contact with it for 24 hours. The key is to keep it wet with this solution for about 24 hours. It takes time for it to work but it does work. Im on my second gallon of this product and it really is a miracle worker for removing rust with the least amount of effort.
Keep in mind the rust eats away at the metal so there will be pitting once the rust is removed. A wire brush will clean that up.

Answer: 
When you say 'leave it', it depends on how long you will leave it.
According to the directions:
"Check periodically. Soak time ranges: Light rust will require 5-30 minutes, moderate rust up to 4 hours and heavily rusted items may take up to 24 hours. Do not leave part in solution after rust is no longer present or metal might become dark."

No it is not reusable per the product information so what I have done is devise ways to use as little as possible to soak the items. The active ingredients that remove the rust is used up during the process so it wont work after or might work but not so well.

Metal Rescue™ Rust Remover Bath of the Workshop Hero™ line of products is a rust remover designed for iron and steel. It is non-toxic, easy to use and easy to clean up and dispose of. Metal Rescue™ is has a water-based formula that literally acts like a magnet to rust. We like to say “Metal Rescue™ is safe on everything except rust,” because while it removes rust from metal it will not harm other materials such as wood, glass, rubber, vinyl or plastic.
Metal Rescue™ is clean, safe, easy to use and is reuseable.
Metal Rescue™ has an infinite shelf life (for un-opened product). Once opened, the shelf life of the solution will vary due to biodegradability. After using Metal Rescue™, it is best to cover the bath, but still allow air to flow over the surface. Used solution that is poured back into a sealed container will allow anaerobic bacteria to begin the degradation process. Open baths that are covered to prevent too much evaporation will continue to operate effectively for up to 12 months. Read Less

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Metal Rescue - Excellent Results on Motorcycle tank Excellent results obtained on my motorcycle fuel tank.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by METAL RESCUE RUST REMOVER BATH This product is THE BOMB for cleaning out a rusty motorcycle gas tank. Just tape the opening with duct tape and leave for a half-day or longer (depending on the amount of rust) then invert for same amount of time! No damage to the paint if it happens to leak and no neutralizing after this process. But wait! You can pour this down the sewer when you're finished! TERRIFIC AND EASY January 19, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product! This product is fantastic.. Very easy to use and no odor. Place item in a plastic container, pour enough Metal Rescue to cover the item, put a lid on it and wait. First I cleaned a bunch of old rusted drill bits for about 12 hours. They came out great! I placed part of a pipe wrench in the leftover solution and let it soak for 2 days. Rinsed and wiped with a towel. Amazing! November 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really works It did an amazing job with rusty hand tools, and I was even able to carefully use it on the top of my jointer to remove rust that accumulated from the time it spent in my unheated garage. Amazing stuff. December 29, 2015
