A thought about securely storing valuables:
Have several hidden storage areas/caches with the bulk of your valuables and some smaller “bait” caches. If ever overwhelmed by thieves or the government, give up the smaller stashes to satisfy the varmints. In the case of registered firearms, a government grab will expect to find all the registered weapons and some associated ammo so it is imperative to acquire (legally) never registered weapons and ammo for the long term if you do not already have “free” weapons.
Of course in the case of thieves, the best option is vigorous self-defense.
