I'm not so worried about my guns, because I bought them all informally
for cash, and there are no public records :) And I no longer buy or sell
"illegal" drugs.

My only substantial risk factor is online activity. But all that's
visible is a VPN connection. And many people use VPNs these days. For
casual stuff, I use nested VPN chains. Plus Tor for stuff that I really
care about. So I'm not too worried.

But I do wonder what I'd do if they "came for me". All my machines are
full-disk encrypted. And the power strip to the UPS is about two meters
away as I type. So I could shut everything down fast enough.

Still, do I want to deal with the hassle? I have a lawyer on retainer.
But they'd impound all my stuff, and demand FDE passphrases. Life would
suck, maybe for a long while. Say, if I were jailed for contempt.

But you know, at some point suicide by cop will look like the best
option. I have my combat pump 12 gauge, with pistol grips and laser
sight. With alternating buckshot and slugs. And I've been thinking about
a simple design for a "fire bomb", for diversion. Basically, a ~500 ml
plastic bottle, ~2/3 full of kerosene, with a 12 gauge blank on top. I'd
use a simple firing pin, comprising a spring with a ratchet and string.

On the other hand, maybe I'll just die in my sleep :)
