Ok I'm not a hard core 'prepper' but I see the merits of burying a firearm and small ammo stockpile just in case either SHTF or we have a "we're from the gub'ment and we're here to help" situation... And by help I mean take my firearms (Katrina) this is more for the latter than the former.
THIS IS NOT A DEBATE OVER WHAT WILL HAPPEN, IF IT WILL HAPPEN, OR WHEN IT WILL HAPPEN. I don't want my thread getting locked because of a flame throwing contest or political debate.
What kind of .22 long rifle would you bury?
How would you store it prior to burial?
My tentative plan is either a keltec su-22 rifle or a polymer stock ruger 10/22 with 2or3 bricks of .22 buried in a piece of PVC pipe (idk if either will fit into a 6" PVC pipe or not)
I plan on covering it with heavy oil and putting a bunch of silica gel packets in with it too.
Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions? Questions?
