It's also illegal to riot and break into people's home to rob and kill them, but that doesn't stop the mobs.

The police won't be around to protect us from the criminals, but the gun confiscations will occur before that. If you think it's silly to keep some guns on hand instead of giving them to the government should the day come when they demand we surrender them, I'll be one of the silly ones. You can be the smart one and turn in all your guns to the government.

A buried gun is awfully hard to use if you are trapped in your house. However, it only takes a moderate hammer strike to break thru a piece of 1/4 or 1/2 inch drywall. And you don't have to worry so much about rust.

Never know, it might be.

At the people that made them illegal.

No it isn't. It's a practical defensive maneuver. I've never done it though 'cause I don't have any to do it with. They're all at the bottom of the Bay.

Completely misunderstood my post. Carry on.

Glad someone else gets it.

I’m not opposed to the idea or practice of geocaching. Just not going to bury $500+ worth of gun and ammo.

Risk/reward assessment, do what satisfies you.

It is just inconceivable that anyone would want to burry their guns. The next thing would be to have Jeff Bezos store them in space for you in case you need them. At least they will not corrode, rust or deteriorate.
