If one were to "store" a gun for safe keeping where and how would you do that? I've seen the large plastic storage containers that have the rubber seals (look like salvaged irrigation pipes with screw on ends) that supposedly can be buried. Any thoughts? Probably more interested in handguns like a 5.7 as one can store lots of ammo along with a gun....

:th_noproblem:Very simple and there are different ways, one can buy surplus rocket tubes or storage tubes/containers but are expensive!
However a lot of folks do what you were talking about, buy a 6"x3 ft PVC pipe and the end cap as well as a screw on/off cap for other end apply the cleaner around the edge then the cement then on other side do same for the screw on cap.

Get a AK folder (or whatever) it is about 27"avg make sure to lightly cover with oil put in gun sock then in pipe add ammo boxes etc.. small can dessicant (not really needed) put in ammo boxes etc... screw on cap and bury.

Many survivalists do this.:th_vote_yes:

It will be waterproof and everything else and u never have to worry about it!:new3_sign_goodidea::?

My Mossin rifle's owners manual has a very similar direction for a long term storage, however it said to use a gear oil and fill the tube after placing the rifle inside, without the optics.

Do not use the knock out plug but a shc 40 end cap primer-ed and glue on the end on, I read many years ago of the "Dip" method or poor-mans cosmoline. Mix I think it's Castro tub of axle grease the brown grease with a gallon of white gas, The kind for Coleman lanterns and mix till dissolved. (This is not for wood so remove stocks) Now dip or paint the parts with Dip and hang from wire till the White gas flashes off, About a hour. Then bag it however you want but I would vacuum pack it and your firearm will now last into the next century.
