aw crap... I already got two mossbergs and a Cruiser model as well, I would love to have just the case without the shotgun.

oh, btw you WILL want to replace the rear grip on the 500's They hurt like hell because the back of teh grip is to flat and it feels like it is about to rip your damn thumb off. I just replaced the forehand on mine with a grip, I know its ugly as hell but it helps with the recoil and control untill I get around to replaceing the rear grip.

under is the mossberg 500 cruiser model

Agreed...this is excellent work & thinking by who ever in marketing or sales.
Too bad they don't have a MA legal variant with a shoulder stock.

Throw some dessicant packs in there, pack in 4 or 5 boxes of shells, attach a tampon style pull string with handle to the end of the tube, bury 1' deep in an easy to locate spot in ones backyard with handle exposed and hidden amongst brush or under the bird feeder, forget about it untill the twister or aliens arrive.
Pull, pop top, and you're in the game.

wow janq -

thats alot more thought put into it than i had ever expected

i suppose you would lock the gun, how would u hide the key or expect to carry it with you at all times?

and i dont know how i would feel having an unscured weapon outside my home - that could possibly be used against me

in addition to the tube - it might have been a good idea to use the marine edition to futher prevent any issues in a damp/wet enviroment

MMC,

It would be buried _atleast_ a foot underground (I'd likely go deeper) thus hidden and secure.
maybe even grow a small garden on top of it for extreme cover. The tube itself would be locked and the lock wrapped in a ziploc sandwich bag and that wrapped in vinyl tape. As for the key I'd use a combination lock or a cheap & free cable lock. I keep the keys for mine on my main keyring, a secondary ring, and another set on my wifes keyring. If by some odd chance all three keyrings are lost/not available then it's not hard to break a cable lock with a little leverage via a tree limb.
The pull handle as I describe would be completely obscured from anyones view and of course you could never tell anyone of this setup or it's location and it's not something you go to on any ocassion to shoot & play around with either. Purely a SHTF emergencies only device. I'd pack a handheld civil emergency radio in there as well along with a large pack of alkaline batteries and several flashlights, basic medications, bandages, and several packets of dried food too.

Anyone BTW could make one of these on their own with a length of PVC tubing one end sealed with a cap and resin and the other end threaded with a cap.
This way if one finds their home blown down, collapsed, blocked off per the cops/military, or whatever then they aren't ass out as many Katrina victims were. Having all your gear in not so water resistant muchless waterproof safes within the house does no one any good as the actions rust up quick and fill with sludge or are inaccessible due to having the whole house lying on top of it.
Meanwhile just about anyone can dig into earth with their hands, a found tree limb, or locate a trowel/shovel/tire iron to dig up a buried cache and pull it from the ground via the drawstring I noted. Saturate the ground before digging to make the job go by even quicker & easier.

Well I bought this for a few reasons….

1. It’s a damn cool little package. (I’ve said this in a reply already, I know.) …and if a good company comes out with cool stuff, and by me supporting the company by buying it…maybe they will come out with even cooler stuff. Sorry if this sounds dumb but when I saw this I HAD to have it – period. I was like a little kid and I’m not like that with just anything.

2. I’m moving back down to SoCal and I’ve been though some bad earthquakes/ L.A Riots and other crap like that. Also I have been having a reoccurring nightmare about my weapons being taken from me. This kit will be somewhere safe away from my other weapons.


…I can’t wait for the store to get it in. :D

I didn't know which one to go with...I had the guy at the gun store ask Mossberg if the tubes were any different and mossy said they are the same...just different colors. So I went with the $100 cheaper model.

its not the tube color that makes the difference - as it is the gun's finish which will could make the world of difference






glad to see some folks got in on this



and janq - i totally understand what you were saying and trying to do


u might want to do 2 or 3 tubes - one for the weapons, one with food stuffs and one with radio, flashlights ect

That wing nut is the weak link, unless it's made out of stainless steel or treated really well to not rust.
I'd maybe duct tape closed a bag over the cap to prevent earth from attacking that nut and weakening it if not consuming it whole.

I'm glad this thread came up because it's given me some ideas.
I've got an earthen basement in my carriage barn as well as a large patch of exposed earth in my basement (used to be where the coal bin was).
