JIC baby!!!!

I like the waterproof container - someone was really thinking when they put that package together.
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
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.

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).
