Some info on ammo and guns from the Ready Store.What is the Best Gun for Emergency Preparedness?Written by Brandon GarrettWe often get the question about what type of gun we would recommend for emergency preparedness.The answer is a bit complicated. It depends on what you’re going to use the gun for. Is it for hunting food that you’d need in an emergency? Is it for self-defense? Each gun has it’s different strengths and weaknesses and the gun you choose should be tailored to your specific needs.http://www.thereadystore.com/survival-tips/5352/what-is-the-best-gun-for-emergency-preparednessMake sure to look over the comments section also.
Many of us have made sacrifices while trying to stock supplies for what is to come. I know I certainly have. Each of us can only do the best we can, no point worrying about what you cannot do.The other day my daughter and I were discussing our preps and we were saying that all our efforts could end up in vain. The structure our preps are stored in could collapse and make it difficult for us to even get to our supplies. Think of the disasters that have happened over the past few years. Earthquakes that collapse homes, and make it impossible to get into the rubble without the use of heavy machinery. Tornadoes that carry items clear to the next county. Tsunamis that carry everything out to sea.Ultimately we really do not know if any of our preps will survive, and even if they do, we may have service to self individuals who come and rob us. The government may confiscate our supplies, or we may be forced to abandon our safe places suddenly and only be able to take what we can carry on our backs.What will be will be. Do the best you can and trust God for the rest. Thankfully, we are souls inhabiting a body, and will continue to exist no matter what happens to us.And I firmly believe that many will survive that have done no preps at all and many who have prepped their hearts out will not.
We have talked before about storing supplies in some holes like you describe in various places on the property, but my daughter thinks with the various methods the military has at their disposal, they may sweep the property with some kind of device and discover them anyway.I remember many years ago, I thought about trying to hide from the military way up in the mountains. That was before I knew about all their abilities to use heat sensing equipment to locate warm bodies. I don't think there is anywhere one can hide if they want to find you.
This is very interesting, thanks Barb.

Unrelated to all this, we have a friend we used to see a lot and he was always very fearful "the governemt" was going to confiscate his guns and he said he had many of them stored all over his wooded acreage, and each one was buried in plastic pipe. He said their detection equipment couldn't see through the thick-walled PVC drain pipe. Don't know if it's true, but thought it's worth passing on. I've seen occasional thick wall PVC pipe (a section about 3' in diameter) used for protecting a spring from frogs and fish, so something that large might also be capable of storing stuff, but the question would be how to seal the ends. It's easy with drain pipe by getting a cap, but do they make caps for the huge pipe?And just a note about hiding from infrared (IR) cameras. It might not be easy, but remember deer, elk, etc., are out in the woods so there would be a lot of "background clutter". Also, I saw a program one time where someone was researching how much body heat polar bears lose. They were photographing polar bears using IR and were astonished to see that polar bears do not show the heat waves typical of those color-rendered IR pictures. It appeared the polar bears were losing no heat at all. And I'm certainly not suggesting everyone run out and find a polar bear to kill, but there may be ways to "dress" that might trap our body heat.
Destiny comes to those who listen, and fate finds the rest.
So learn what you can learn, do what you can do, and never give up hope!
