    Eh... I'd stick with glue-on caps. I've heard of far too many threaded fittings failures even with teflon tape and silicone.
    I doubt opening a seized threaded cap would be any more difficult to open than one sealed with glue. You are going to likely saw it open either way.

    I'd also recommend the inclusion of silica gel or other moisture absorbent packs and then applying a liberal coating of lubricant to your firearm. I'd hate to unearth my pistol/rifle only to find something resembling a civil war relic because the gun was encased in a moisture rich environment. Might as well include some ammo as well. No sense scrounging around for misplaced ammo. I know I've had the perfect hiding place in my shop only to discover the place was so perfect I could no longer find my 'treasure'.

    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.

    Call me silly, but why bury guns to hide them from the gubbamint? If they start going door-to-door in a wholesale confiscation (which they won't, but that's another thread), wouldn't that be reason enough to USE it instead of burying it? If you bury it, then what? Are you ever gonna dig it up? if so, when are you gonna dig it up? Won't it still be illegal then? Or are you simply going to sit back and let others take one for the team?

    It will be a great day when our schools have all the money they need, and politicians have to start selling candy bars and holding car washes to finance their campaigns.

    You don't bury your only gun silly. You bury your extra gun. The gun you bought just to bury as a fall back. Yes you use your first gun but I wouldn't do it alone. They will take you out and not work up a sweat doing it. Network, network, network. Know your militia's. Know your veteran's and other patriots. Do some kind of training. If you are not familiar with military training then get a Warrior Skills common task manual. If we do not unify, they simply can go door to door getting you one by one.

    Glue no screw!!!
    First hand I saw what happened with screw on's
    After a friend died, we dug up his stash, one cylinder contained a 1911, 10 mags and 500 rounds.
    Water leaked in and destroyed it all, was in the ground for about 10 years at the time.
    The glue capped ones were fine, the damn things were all in a casket!!!!

    Speaking of which. Didn't big brother come door to door after the militia standoff with the Bundy's at the game reserve? If I remember right they killed an un armed guy and then waited and then went door to door and arrested a bunch of militia members. Tactically sound but I still think they were a bunch of bitches.

    I agree completely. Don't use screw on caps. Also, if it is at all possible bury your guns under a pile of metallic junk in case anyone searching your place for guns uses a metal detector. Throw some dehumidifiers into your gun container as well. The guns should be cleaned and well oiled before being buried. The Army used to use Cosmoline grease but cleaning that stuff off is a nightmare.
    Growing your own food is like growing your own money.

    While doubt is uncomfortable, certainty is the refuge of fools and zealots.

    If you aren't preparing to live, you're preparing to die.
