    Long Term Storage...

    I was thinking about various things that happen from time to time (such as natural disasters and occasionally even riots) and had a couple of questions.

    1. What is the best way to preserve firearms for long-term storage (cosmoline, mylar, etc.)?

    I can't really think of a better way to ask this, so think about whether you want to answer it, but:

    2. Where is the best place to put a firearm into LTS considering worries about criminals or thieves gaining possession of them?

    I personally like using PVC. Take a suitable size pipe and permanently cap one end; on the other use a threaded cap. Load what ever you would like into it drop in on of them 'Do Not Eat' moisture remover packets. Before you close it up drop a chuck of dry ice in to remove the oxygen and screw the cap on good and tight.
    Note: Make sure that the dry ice chunk is completely gone before capping.

    I remember one company that used to produce gun storage bags, that worked really well. They were made back in the early to mid 90's.
    I can't remember the full name of the product, but the first name is "Blue".
    Any ideas ???
