I am advised to lubricate the firing pin of my newly bought shotgun after every time i fire for the first few times. is it OK??

Also i have been given this anti rust spray (refer to added pics), can i use it as an emergency replacement for the gun oil??

Yes! you can use this spray, infact, in my own experience it is quiet good as a cleaner, lubricant and protectant. I've used this product and found it better than WD40. when it comes to lubrication only, it is not as good as dedicated lubricants such as hoppes, militec PG lubricant however for emergency usage it is quiet good. it does not gum up like WD40. it is clean burning and will not leave any residue. I have also lubricated firing pin channels with it and found no ill effects whatsoever with this. however when you do spray it inside the firing pin channel make sure to make it a regular cleaning routine. otherwise once sprayed can trap firing residue and lock the firing pin in place causing firing pin related reliability issues. you dont want to do that. first rule do not lubricate the firing pin channel but if you still want to, then make sure to clean and lubricate every time you clean your shotgun.

one more thing, to ensure maximum lubrication of your firearm, I would recommend a specialty lubricant. CLPs (cleaner, lubricant and protectant) are at best mediocre in each and every department. something like jack of all, master of none kinda deal working here with CLPs. only dedicated lubricants can ensure optimum lubrication and long service life of your firearm. for occasional firing, even CLPs are more than good enough. however for extended firing sessions, only dedicated lubricants should be used.
