personally I like Cannon safes. they have the best warranty in the industry. http://cannonsafe.com/warrantyI have been thinking that prepping must also include keeping my valuables safe and sound. so I'm concerned with choosing the right safe that help me with this.
That's a good one. My Aunt once had 17 thousand dollars in the bottom of a barrel of goat feed once.I keep dog food in a 30 gallon plastic barrel ,,,,,,,,,,,as long as the item you want hidden is small put it in a zip lock bag and bury it in the feed,,,,,,,,,,,no one will look at the barrel more than once
I looked up instructions on making a security can, cutting the bottom off with a safety opener, and how to put a screw bottom on, etc. Here is where I found it, I think I will give it a try.False bottom in a container, hollowed out leg on furniture, even the old false floor board. There are some websites about hiding in plain sight.
I have and Poe is one of my favorite authors. Having eliminated all the probable hiding spots, look for the improbable hiding spot. The true key is to not have anybody looking for it. If nobody is looking for a safe, then hiding a safe is much easier. ,Read "The Purloined Letter" by Edgar Allen Poe.
I would fill the black garbage bag with fertilizer / fresh pet droppings, etc.. One whiff and the search heads in a different direction. Nobody is digging in that, to see if something maybe hidden.Considering use of a galvanized garbage can(the nastier the better), cut the bottom out, put it over the safe, place a round of wood over the safe and insert a black garbage bag and just use it for trash or fill it with rags. Will have to see how it looks and if it will fit. I like the ideas so far.
I used to see them in stores. I’m sure there are still cheap options on line. I remember seeing shaving cream, cleaning agents, and a few other non conspicuous mini safes.I looked up instructions on making a security can, cutting the bottom off with a safety opener, and how to put a screw bottom on, etc. Here is where I found it, I think I will give it a try.
Lol. I just found a 9mm I hid in the kitchen behind some recipe books. I was wondering where the damned thing was for two days when it came to me in a flash earlier today! I guess it wouldn’t have done much good if I forgot where it was so it’s back to under the mattress again.I am a fan of hide in plain sight. I have enough trouble remembering where I left my keys, much less where I buried the good stuff.
