[Music] suburban Sentinel here with a follow-up to our initial video on ammunition storage and logistics you probably see bellow the camera catchers getting in on the act in the background there anyway in that video we discussed five competing goals or interests involved in ammunition storage namely security access longevity Portability and
00:38
efficiency in packaging we also discussed that there is no one way or storage method of satisfying all of those goals and the best we can do is to use a variety of different packaging and preservation methods to achieve a balance in this video we'll be focusing on the security aspects of ammunition storage and note that we're still in the
01:09
theory and planning stages we'll get to the nitty gritty how-to in future videos in discussing ammunition security I am referring to protection from theft or casualty I have two different strategies for protecting my ammunition against theft or other type of casualty the first of which is what I call brute force security and essentially what I'm talking about our guns safes we're not
01:46
talking about small gun safes just designed to hold one handgun we're talking about the floor models that are extremely heavy can be bolted into concrete our fire resistant and any other similar cabinet in point of fact in addition to using a conventional gun safe a lot of my ammunition is stored in fireproof filing cabinets naturally each one of these safes and cabinets have
02:17
robust locks that require the use of a combination or specialized key to open so now let's take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of the brute force or gun safe model of ammunition storage the biggest advantage of a gun safe or substantially similar cabinet is security it's going to be very difficult for someone to walk off with your floor safe also unauthorized
02:54
entry will be difficult due to the combination locks or having a limited number of the specialized keys available another advantage of a gun safe it allows for fairly easy access although it's not the type of access you want if someone is at your gate and breaking into your home having a gun safe or similar in your house allows relatively quick access to extra ammunition a third
03:27
major advantage of the gun safe is the longevity of the ammunition if the gun safe or equivalent cabinet is in your home it's relatively easy to control the environment moisture and unduly high temperatures adversely affect ammunition and controlling the temperature and humidity in your own home is pretty straightforward in addition you can control the micro environment within your gun safe using
03:59
off-the-shelf products and in some safes those are built right in the primary disadvantages of a gun safe are of course first portability you don't want to carry a full-size floor safe everywhere you go and second is the cost good gun safes and/or fireproof cabinets or fire resistant cabinets can be very costly I'm going to deviate from the subject
04:33
matter just for a moment be very careful from a legal perspective about storing arms and ammunition inside your home many homeowners insurance policies and mortgage documents expressly prohibit such things as quote unquote explosives in the home oftentimes the term explosive is not defined within the contents of the policy this and other
05:04
types of ambiguities in the mortgage or insurance documents can lead to problems down the road if there is some type of casualty or claim so take the time to meet with your insurance person and/or lawyer to make sure that your carrier and if you have a mortgage your mortgage company and you are all on the same page with respect to a munitions storage I know it's a pain in the neck and it can
05:36
be an expensive proposition as well but in this case an ounce of prevention can be worth a ton of cure all right topic the second method we're discussing is what I call hide-and-seek security this is not based on brute force but making your materials hard to find essentially what we're talking about our ammo caches and my preferred method for
06:11
an ammo cache is to bury the ammo underneath the ground so let's look at some of the advantage of an underground ammo cache and by the way the word is cash some people call it an mo cachet it's not I don't know why but that drives me crazy cachet is a different word cachet means a mark of distinction anyway an mo cash gets an A+ for security because people can't take what they can find another advantage of
06:47
the ammo cash model is that you can have multiple caches and the advantage is not having all of your eggs in one basket of course all of this comes with a price there are some very significant downsides first if your ammo is buried underground here access is terrible for reloading inspection and maintenance second you're dealing with a harsh uncontrolled environment in most cases
07:18
and third in order to deal with that harsh environment you're going to need to spend a lot of time and resources on your packaging and preservation efforts so there you have two methods that satisfy the security objective of ammunition storage personally I keep about 70% of my ammunition supply in the gun safe model and about 15% in the ammo cash model and
07:56
that works for me in future videos we will discuss other methods of storage emphasizing different goals and then we'll get to the nitty-gritty how to's as to each method so thanks for watching this is the suburban sentinel along with bella the camera cat please thumbs up and subscribe if you like what you see questions and enlightening comments are always welcome remember that the most
08:28
important prep you have is between your ears be safe everybody say goodbye bells
