That botton pallet 2nd from the left looks like it has some HUGE cans on it and there are some long skinny ones too.

Man, that's just down the road from us, too. I think zuma should consider this one, he probably needs a few more and could start a resale business! wink

I was going to say, that's a lifetime supply...but then again, I'm sure there is someone out there who could find a way to run out....

The WGA should buy them - stencil the logo on the side and camp paint them then sell them for $10 a piece or something. That would be a good moneymaker. Make a challenge out of them across the state. Find all 960 of them and go for the final. In the meantime, Zuma can store them in his garage - actually - set up "distributors" who are WGA members across the state who can divvy them out and collect the $. Can we have a ammo can painting event?

One, one more stipulation - the cans all have to be skirt lifters.

Brian, if you would like a 2.5% share I would be willing to split.
or anyone else for that matter.... first one to post an okay to split will be my partner on this. I only need?? want?? 24 cans. I will most likely be in trouble for the 24 already. "no really dear, I will get them out of the garage in a week or so. " [Smile]

O.K. I'm in for a 2.5% Pete. I've been upgrading my micros for a couple years now, and I really want one of those lampskirt ones. Stealth paint come with that too? wink
