    and to keep on topic, the military supply in Newport has the cheapest ammo cans around.... well had... i cleaned em out of 30cal, but they're getting more, they also have the 50cal and the really really big ones, the 30cal were only $4 and the larger ones were like $5 to $10
    The guy I spoke to today on the phone at Newport said they were out and he had no idea of when they would be getting more of the smaller cans in.

    haha, guess i put the hurtin's on them... the person at the store that day was an older woman that might not have known when they were actually getting more.. but she told me they come and go... in this case they went...but they do have a lot of cool stuff in there anyways.

    I checked around and Marden's in Ellsworth still has the ammo boxes . . . and a steal at $1.99 for the small containers! I stocked up and bought 9 of them for future caches . . . there's still half a pallet of the smaller ammo boxes though if anyone is interested in making the trip.

    well, i'm heading out west for a week tomorrow, they'll probably be gone by the time i get back... someone should go up there and buy em all then sell em for like $3.50 ((which is still pretty dirt cheap)to cover the cost of gas to drive up there!)

    I actually thought about picking up a bunch and turning around and selling them for $3, but I figured with my Irish luck I'd end up with about 50 ammo cans that no one would want and my wife would have killed me for spending the money and cluttering up the house.

    How far out west are you going if I may be so bold to ask?
