Although not an expert, my brother seemed to think the seal on the gun safe door would be tight enough to protect from an EMP blast. The issue with EMP damage usually (not always) revolves around wires acting as an antenna to collect the charge and zap the electronics in question. Originally Posted By aeropilot4fun: Seems to me that a gun safe is an expensive way to store things against EMP. One of the scarier survival events that preppers need to be concerned about is an attack involving a High-altitude ElectroMagnetic Pulse, also called HEMP.  All nuclear weapons create EMP, but when detonated high in the atmosphere, the EMP generated is so massive that it can destroy electronics and permanently knock out the power grid across the entire country. However, unlike EMP, a CME event does not destroy electronic devices, unless they happen to be connected to the power grid or long lines that will collect the induced current.  For more on the differences between EMP and CME, you can read about it here. One test involved being on top of a mountain that was filled with radio antennas.  The collective power of all these radio towers was 9,000,000 watts of RF (Radio Frequency) energy!  Another test was standing at the base of a 50,000 watt AM station. This means that you should be able to easily protect your electronic gear from EMP simply by wrapping it in aluminum foil.  I also found that placing the foil-wrapped radio inside a galvanized steel trash can greatly increased the effectiveness of the shielding. There needs to be a minimum of 3 layers of aluminum foil completely surrounding the device. When you wrap your electronic device, it’s important to prevent it from touching the foil.
If the device has a removable battery, remove it and store it separately.  The last thing you want is to find out that the batteries leaked and ruined the equipment that you went to so much trouble to protect.

I know a guy that insists that simply disconnecting a cars battery will protect the cars computer from an EMP.
For Anne, battery backups, solar power tied to battery banks and generators will still run a lot of electronic equipment.
EMP & Solar Protection Technologies specializes in products that offer EMP Protection from solar storms, electromagnetic disturbances, and wireless identity theft.
Our products are designed to protect electronics from the effects of a Coronal Mass Ejection or a Nuclear EMP attack. O ur products have proven extremely effective at blocking Electronic Surveillance, Illegal Electronic Interrogation and Data Theft.
We can KEEP IT SECRET with our proven selection of Electronic Counter Surveillance bags & sleeves. As an added benefit, many of our products significantly extend the lifespan of electronics. Every minute of every day the electronics you rely on to function in your home or business are assaulted by fluctuations in the electrical current supplied by your local power grid.

Our products not only provide protection from the effects of solar flares and electromagnetic pulse, many of our products can double the useful life of your electronics. USS-1 series surge protection devices are very compact and protect a single wire carrying a low voltage or signal and currents up to 0.5A. USS-1 surge protection devices are specially designed for feed-through installation into a bulkhead, e.g. A variety of USS-1 types are available for different applications, depending on the operating voltage. If you want to protect your electronics from an EMP attack or occurrence, there are a few actions you need to take.
There are other ways of shielding units and mobile devices from an EMP, by encasing them in a Faraday Cage.
The shielding bags are very nice, because they come in many sizes that can be stored in your BOB, a desk drawer, your vehicle, or anywhere else you can think of where you may need one for quick use to protect your electronics from an EMP. There are more decorative bags of different sizes that a available for cell phones and lap tops. The energy from an EMP is a extremely fast moving and powerful energy, but also a temporarily existing energy of sorts.
If you have any questions on this subject and your Faraday Cage project, please contact me. EMP & Solar Protection Technologies specializes in products that offer EMP Protection from solar storms, electromagnetic disturbances and wireless identity theft.
Any item placed within this Bag receives outstanding Electronic Counter-Surveillance and EMP protection. Padded, water resistant and sized to protect all Tablet Computers and many Mini-Laptop Computers. Velcro attachment defeats pick-pocket razor theft and the Velcro audibly alerts any attempt to rip the bag from your PURSE.
Elastic slots are sown into the outside of the bag to secure Flashlight, Car Keys, Pens, Markers, Tablet Stylus' and Sterile Zip Drives. This Bag effectively blocks wireless electronic snooping from hostile nations, business competitors and criminal organizations. This Bag provides an excellent electronic counter-surveillance shield for Corporate and Government international travelers and tourists.
This Bag provides outstanding protection for sensitive electronics from all types of Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), lightning and random static charges. This Bag provides an excellent storage location for cell phones, smart phones, and tablets brought into an electronically secure Federal or Military Facility.
Meets the IEEE 299 Standard Method for Measuring the Effectiveness of Electromagnetic Shielding Enclosures. I was more concerned with the protection of the 4 Aimpoint, 2 Eotechs, night vision, and some hand held radios (expensive work Motorolas) that I store inside.

When it comes to expensive optics, I would think its pretty safe from EMP, though I'd might inquire with Aimpoint as to any testing with regard to effects.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, your brother might want to get his money back for that "electrical engineer" degree. Because of this, many preppers are interested in EMP protection measures for their electronics. Followed closely, I think, by how to manage those devices that don’t have removable batteries, but you want to store anyway. There has been no hard-core conclusive testing on vehicles, so a lot of what scientists and engineers talk about are only educated guesses. The problem arises in the fact that I am not so sure modern day gasoline pumps have manual capabilities. Few of us stop to consider what would happen if there were a sudden failure of all personal electronics and a collapse of the power grid. External influences such as solar flares, natural disasters and cyber warfare may cause interruptions in power service that can only worsen the corrosive effects of fluctuating electric current on modern electronic devices. You may not be not be so inclined to have a large metallic Faraday cage with you at all times, these shielding bags are a great choice of use. Batteries will normally not be affected by an EMP if they are separate or disconnected from a circuit pathway, but I store mine in the same place as that of my protected electronics for organizational reasons.
Granted, these are very educated guesses, but there’s enough dispute among them to be able to derive a conclusive answer from it. It’s called the Silent Pocket, which is designed to stop signals from entering an electronic device for the purpose of leaving the device on, but not transferring information or ringing when in important meetings.
Also, I do not know how severe an EMP that occurs might be or how close the source that generated it is. I keep my radios disconnected when not in use and try to keep them stored in a manner that gives them protection. For these devices, I think it’s just a matter of having to have the discipline to take these out every 30 to 60 days and charge them up.
Every circuit board trace, electrical circuit, and wire in your car will act like an antenna and must be enclosed in a Faraday cage to protect from EMP.
This will help to prevent the Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) from entering the unit and harming the circuits inside the device. Think of the metallic outer shell as if it were an atmosphere, protecting your electronic world. Even if not in the safe, the rifle can act as an antenna, though the electronics are already isolated from the optic case metals already.
