    I'm not a fan of burying anything. But if I did, I'd never use threaded caps. They'll leak and you'll have a very expensive tube of rust when you dig it up. Use two simple glue-on caps instead. A lot easier to open anyway.

    And I'll bet I can suanter down to Home Cheapo and buy the parts for far less than anyone can sell and ship them to me.
    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 can seal the threaded caps with teflon plumbers tape or with silicone seal.

    And when you dig it up, are you going to have a vise and a pair of large channellocks to open it?

    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 would think so. I use it on pitot/static fittings. I can't imagine moisture creeping through threads slathered with that mess.

    Either way, you'd probably need some hefty tools to spin one open after it's been cooking in the ground for a few years. Lugging around a Channel-lock 440 or 460 just to access (what I hope to be) a serviceable firearm doesn't sound too enticing.

    A wire saw is a much more compact and immensely lighter option. Push comes to shove, unravel some 550 cord and use one of the strands in a pinch.

    And if I'm going to have to saw the pipe open anyway, I just as well save the scratch and use two glue caps. JMHO.
