  1. If what you are saying is that there has been valuable enlightenment in discussing this and the practicalities learned outweigh any true concern regarding need to obfuscate, then I'd agree. However, as one with extensive first hand warrant execution experience, the extent to which people go to sequester items never fails to surprise me. Exploring realities of less common methodologies is useful.
  2. Yup, thought about that prior to posting. Feeling pretty secure that I'm not too easy to find through my VPN IP and then guess ing which of the hundreds of docks my friend, among several dock owning friends, owns on this big river among other tributaries and very big lakes.
  3. 1. Why not, because I can, to hide it, to avoid governmental sweeps and searches in violation of the Constitution; 2. What ever defenseful purpose I might require of it.
  4. I am really enjoying and appreciating the responses in this thread. My fear is that No_0ne is exactly right. That being said, how is a pond searched? I've got a buddy on a 10,000+ acre lake with hundreds of piling type docks. Thinking I'd just wrap a chain around a piling, coil another chain around the PVC set up (I like multiple vacuum bags instead of oil) and some ballast and drop it down 20 feet. Retrieval via line and grappling hook.
  5. So I'm entertaining the possibility (SHTF situations) of being able to store some guns and ammo under about 10-15 feet of pond water. I'd retrieve it with a line and grappling hook or line and magnet. I could secure it from too much wandering due to current/wind by chaining it to a piling or wrapping a chain and cinder block around it. Question: Cheap, easy, WATERPROOF storage for contents? Bags of desiccant added to reduce rust. Thinking must be able to store guns/ammo for months under 15 feet of water. Thoughts or ideas? PS-- Asking for a friend.
  6. Damn, sorry. Just sold my 98K and M44 to my nephew in Ohio. I remember when SKS's were $99 wrapped in cosmoline. Bought two. Sold one a couple years ago for $500! Yikes. Kept the other one, but it's converted now with a Choate synthetic stock and some other basic work.
  7. Absolutely right. I have a wooden stock basic model 10/22 that I picked up a few weeks ago for $350 (incl DOJ/Tax/pair of 25 rnd mags and 150 rounds). I also have a Volquartsen custom Ruger 10/22 that was $1,500 15 years ago and wouldn't leave my safe for under $2,500 today.
  8. Runco, you are right. The constant sound of tasers clacking away and people on mobility scooters took up a lot of space. IronHandJohn, I came to the conclusion that they MAY LIKELY be liberals due to a lifetime of professional observational training. How many conservatives do you know that wear trendy jeans usually associated with another gender and virtue signaling electric cars? Not that they couldn't be conservatives, but observable data indicated otherwise. Even Xtriggerman and his son noted another Tesla (mine was red, not white) seemed unusual to be there - I'm not the only one that a
  9. Went to the Knoxville area gun show yesterday. Huge turnout, a lot of people. Several thousand during the times I was there. The area was poorly managed. It was well worth the extra couple bucks to buy the VIP passes online to allow you to skip the ticket line. Their website was crashing as people in line were trying to buy tickets online to get out of the ticket line. The lines were not labeled or marked. It was a mob at the front of the venue. You had to ask around and hope you got in the right line. There were 3 (off-duty?) Knoxville PD guys there checking in firearms for people bring
  10. I have been involved in geneaological research for a few years now. Ever since I learned that since I had a grandparent born in Ireland that I too was eligible to be an Irish citizen. Two years later, I sit here with both a US and an Ireland passport It makes me hugely popular on March 17th, but I am, in fact, what is known as a Plastic Paddy, lol. Irish by fact and by heredity, but not Irish in reality if the makes any sense. Still, sometimes I feel safer traveling outside the US on an a non-US passport. I have learned three things about genealogy: 1. My grandfather was full
  11. Just got my new golfing polo shirt! 40% off a Nike dry-fit TNGO shirt? Yes please!
  12. I have a 1980's blued Walther PPK/s Interarms with the "Made in West Germany" stamp on the slide A bit scratched up however. Back in the day, my dad used to play it cool with it and tuck it into his waistband sans holster. It slid all the way down his pant leg more than once.
  13. You mean the elevated rifle butts or the handguns? The handgun rack is up high because underneath it there are barrel-hangers for quick-grab pistols. The long guns are elevated for two reasons: One, to keep the weight of all the guns off the fire-resistant drywall bottom so it doesn't crack and lose efficacy, and; Two, an extra layer of height in case of flooding or in the case of fire, from massive quantities of water pumped into the house by over-enthusiastic puddle-monkeys (fire-fighters). Additionally, I keep a golden rod under there for humidity control and I occasi
  14. I did that!! Bought two USSR made SKS's. Spent hours cleaning cosmoline out of them. One I converted with a Choate Sporter Stock and detached mag (pre-ban and have the receipts to prove it :). The other I left completely stock and gave to my dad (with bayonet and cleaning kit). Just sold that last year for $500!! I store very little ammo in my gunsafe for two primary reasons: First, it's packed with guns. Second, the floor drywall is elevated off ground (nice Browning safe) so the weight would crush the drywall at some point.
