Like the title says...10 ammo cans, most are the larger .50 cal size and 1 or 2 .30 if I recall. Price = free for the hauling.

I have more of these than I can use. I would consider the quality of these as "Fleet Farm Reject" quality so you will need to do some work on them. I don't know what Fleet Farm did to these, but the insides look nearly new while the outsides look like they were stored in saltwater. I have refurbed a few and they seem to hold up fine but it's a lot of brushing and painting, so you are warned.

Send me a PM.

This is the kind of ad I like to see. Now, if it said "100 nanos" or "10000 film cans", I would be much less happy.

Hmmm? The cache "Micro Nemesis" comes to mind.

If not for the mighty micro,
the workhorse of the commoner,
the gateway to the hardcore,
there would be little demand for the big cans - IMHO
Neutral


Lest we forget, the original stash was a P&G, but kinda big, with a can 'o beans .

Ok you thread stealers, since the cans are already spoken for...

My idea of the perfect cache is one you have to work hard to get to but is sitting right there when you get there. Hence, the big classic ammo can hidden concealed by little more than obvious stickouflage(tm) or SPOR. For us caching is about getting to GZ and seeing new and interesting things along the way. Wandering in circles for an hour after you get to GZ is not our idea of fun, and we find little joy in hunting for a filmstrip canister tossed into a shrub in the middle of a roundabout across from a busy strip mall.

I just finshed up our 200th hide. It's a puzzle involving a tour of our local park. Along the way you have to gather information from a series of chainsaw carvings in the park done by park employees. These are first rate detailed carvings. After about an hour and 2 miles you are rewarded with a great adventure and an AMMO BOX.
