True, I have some ammo dumped in plastic zip locks of 100 rds each. I also include the end flap from the box with the lot number.
I haven't tried it but I don't think you'd get more than the 1000 rds of 45 ACP in GI boxes in a 50 caliber can.
Keeping it in factory boxes is neater and something you should consider if you might resell it.
I can't agree with you. I've lived on MREs and C Rations for extended periods of time.
I remember being in a situation with a younger guy at work. I carried some MRES in the car in case I was in a situation when I didn't get the chance to get anything to eat. I pulled out the MREs and proceeded to eat one cold. He said, "I can't eat that shit". My response? "You ain't hungry enough".
Thanks all! To the locals - I've been planning on checking out SJSC. Is it safe to assume I can just drive over and check the place out at some point? I was a kid when I went to ranges so there were always grown-ups around to take care of that for me - I'm not exactly sure what the etiquette is about visiting ranges (no plans or expectations to shoot, just want to see the place and get a feel for it).
