+Ambrosia Posted January 14, 2011 Share Posted January 14, 2011 What if you spray painted a tin with a anti rust paint? I suspect you'd spend more on paint than you would for an ammo can. Not unless you're able to get super cheap ammo cans, I suppose. I always spray my cans with flat olive rust paint, inside and out. I figure it will be better in long run, anyway. It doesn't use a whole spray paint can, so it should still cheaper than the ammo can. Typically the paint sells for $3.99 at home Depot and the like. Ammo cans are $3.50 to $5.99 most of the time, although I have seen them for as much as $10. I've tried tins before. They don't last regardless of how they are painted. I also have a couple of Altoids containers out there. One has been in place for more than 7 years, the other for almost 5. They aren't the best containers, but they do work. *sigh* Ammo can prices have doubled in my town in the last year or two. Very frustrating. All the more reason you should move to Colorado. Okay, we've hijacked this thread enough. Quote Link to comment
