+helix149 Posted November 16, 2009 Share Posted November 16, 2009 Went to grab a couple ammo cans today in knoxville Tn at Cherokee army surplus and while I wasn't surprised he had them I was at the price. I got lucky he happened to have like new cans $5 for a 30 cal $10 for a 50 cal. Which isn't bad in itself with what seems to be a current shortage. What surprised me was he had larger ones for very reasonable prices and even had some "less than perfect" 30 and 50 cal cans for $3 and $5. I say less than perfect but don't be mistaken these cans need little or no touch up I got 3 30 cal cans for less than $10 out the door . One needs a sticker removed then all need a few minor touch ups to the paint. honestly nothing more than what I would have done to cover up the lettering probably anyways. But the question is are ammo cans avail in your area and what are they going for these days? It just seems like all the posts I have read say most of of prefer ammo cans to other containers when they can be used, yet it seems like there aren't as many out there as there could be are they really that much more expensive. To me a can for only 3-5 bucks even if you include a little spray paint is a far better choice than a lock n lock for 2 or 3 that doesn't stay as dry or animal proof and often needs/gets covered in camo tape (which only adds to the cost ) makes much better sense and would last much longer as long as it is placed well and doesn't get muggled. I am fairly new am I missing something? Quote Link to comment
