I'll hold it for you.

Seriously, I also don't know what's safer: under the mattress until inflation returns and destroys it, or invested in any institution where the government will "borrow it."

I hope my after-tax Roth 401k will be safer than my traditional pre-tax 401k; that was the deal, anyway.

I'm tempted to take the sudden tax hit now and convert the balance to after-tax Roth, under the assumption that I can then live tax free when I retire. How naive is this?

The run on arms and ammunition has caused shortages here and there throughout the country... Keep up your supply, and do not neglect the 22 rimfire, which may well turn into the "ballistic wampum" I have spoken of the past.
