Anti-seize is to make sure fittings do not lock up. It should be easier to unscrew the cap than cutting off the end. Either way; I like your idea.
Personally, I'm not burying weapons. I have no desire to be fending off the zombies with a shovel while I retrieve a firearm.
Oh, and this is another reason I still carry a biker's wallet chained to me. I keep a license for everything I do here in Wisconsin. Experience has shown me that carrying a few plastic cards sure beats sitting in the back of a squad car.
...No matter where you are it's enemy territory...
Whatever you use, have a plan to open it!
A good hacksaw is recommended
Mrs Slippy reminds me often to pray for any and every thing.
I sometimes pray that the libtard evil criminals, dumbasses and illegals in California spontaneously combust so that I can buy some property in Carmel By The Sea and spend at least 6 months a year there.
Mrs Slippy says that is not what she meant.
If you were in a fight, those would be the guys you would want beside you.
In fact, in about 72 hours I'll be with them in San Diego for the 99th annual reunion of the Society of the Fifth Division. Hurricane Dorian willing.
(Since I'm flying I can't bring my guns and knives. I was worried to be unarmed, then I realized I'd be surrounded by Infantrymen, Cannon Cockers, Tankers, and support troops. No problem)

I have built several of the tubes for cache purposes. Everything inside of it would be well lubricated in waterproof bags with desiccant. The threads would be sealed with grease and then put a waterproof/resistant material/bag over the top of the tube and then tape it shut. I was going to seal a greased hacksaw blade and tape it on the outside for back up.
Why have a cache tube? Why prep food and supplies. Just because, I want to be prepared. If they outlaw guns it will probably be a civil war but if not are you going to comply? If your not going to comply and they are found you will be a criminal. Do I need to go on? Sounds like good insurance to me.
