Sorry for the generic title but couldn't think of something more clever. First I'm extremely new to survival, preps, etc. and have no illusions about it so don't hesitate to correct me. How would you go about preparing a storage 'kit' that would be sealed in a 5 gal buckets and lets say buried. If you had a firearm, ammo, and some misc. stuff how would you clean and prep them for long term storage? I've started shooting at the range so all of my weapons get cleaned after shooting but I've never had to clean a weapon for long term storage. As most of you know there is a ton of misinformation on the web but I'd like to be sure before I put some serious money in the bucket and underground that I've take proper precautions. I've been tempted to buy a vacuum seal and just clean and oil the pistol like normal and vacuum seal it with a small bag of desiccant. Since I didn't want to thread hijack this is an offshoot of the shared cache threads, there are a few people I trust that have offered some dirt for me to locate such packages I just need to be sure I'm doing it right.
