Gun of the Day: Mossberg 500 Just in Case (JIC)
This is maybe one of the better marketing ideas that have come out of the firearm industry. Basically, it is a Mossberg 500 with a pistol grip and an 18.5 inch barrel packaged in an airtight, waterproof container with a small survival kit. Mossberg says that it can be used for general emergencies, bear attacks, and taking out terrorists invading your home. But it has many more potential uses. Given probable upcoming changes in this country it might be a good idea to have a gun that you can bury. There is extra space in the container, so you can convert it to a "Open in Case of Revolution" kit. I would fill it with an extra set off fatigues, a multi-tool and knife (which are included in the Mariner version), cigarettes, a space blanket, extra ammo, a cleaning kit, and a copy of a guerrilla warfare manual.
